(her lovely bowl)
This year we traveled to Tyler, TX to spend Christmas with Chris' family! We spent the week eating, baking, playing, shopping, eating, Doke family traditions, reading, napping...our kids had a blast and were pretty worn out by the end of the week. Oh and we managed to pass on the stomach flu to MacKenzie and I got it too...sorry we thought we were well! We missed out on the snow blizzard of the decade back in Norman, so getting home was a very focused drive. We are so blessed to have such wonderful family to welcome us into their home, make us dinner, love us well, and celebrate our Savior's birth! We love you Tyler Doke's, miss you already!

Emma and I stayed up late and made Christmas ornaments and drank hot cocoa!
Chris cut the ties and the limbs went everywhere and so did needles!
A few HOURS later it was cleaned up and here's the final result!

Emma was eating her dinner of grilled cheese, carrots, and chips/salsa.
The waitress brought Sophie an icecream sundae for her birthday, so I gave Emma a few bites.
Out of character Emma says: "I don't want anymore." ???
Meg says: "Are you alright...you don't want more?"
Emma says: "No." She looks at Chris, looks at me, back at Chris, then down at the table...
her face turns a lovely shade of green and white, then...
Emma: "Blaaahhhh!" as she vomits 3 times all over half of our table, the booth, and herself.
With vomit running down her nose, she calmly looks at me and says: "What happened?"
Meg says: "Um...you threw up."
As we proceed to clean up the mess, she passes me the sugar container on the table
and asks: "Mommy, do you need anything?"
Meg says: "No thank you."
In the car on the way home I ask: "Are you okay, does your tummy hurt?"
Emma says: "Nope, I feel SO much betta (better)."
The End...not quite how I pictured it (dinner).

Dear Sean Edward, you are a mighty warrior for the Lord! You are a son of the Most High King, a royal heir the throne! Matthew 5:14...YOU are the salt of the earth and YOU are a lamp on the table who gives light to the whole room! From the moment you were born, you were mighty, strong, and sweet. The Lord has GREAT plans in store for you and we can't wait to see what adventures the Lord takes you on!

Orange Tree...we went through the line separately
and both ended up with the exact same combo:
-cookie dough and peanut butter yogurt
-topped with cookie dough, Reece's PB cups, Snickers, and Butterfingers
I've never spent $10 on a cup of icecream, but this was so worth it!
Before we had kids we used to go on campus runs every week, sometimes every day! Now it looks a little different. :)
We woke up Saturday and went for a jog and although it was fun, we remember a day when it didn't seem so hard, so windy, so achy, and so tiring!
