Goodbye, Mrs. Natasha

One of Stephen's teachers, Mrs. Natasha, celebrated her last day at Stevie's school. I am not too sure that Stephen understands that when he comes back to school that she will not be here. I am glad I was able to capture a few snapshots of the two. Good-bye, Mrs. Natasha!

The Moody Chiperno Family Tree

We are leaving our home and our tree behind to venture to Saratoga Springs, New York this Christmas. I said this year that I wasn't going to decorate for Christmas since we will not be here anyhow, but then I asked myself where I was going to put the presents!

Anyhow, (of course!) we put up a tree. Here are some of our favorite ornaments:

We got this ornament this year; I feel like we have some roots here in Killeen!

This is in honor of us "gettin' hitched"

This one was hung last Christmas, while daddy Josh was deployed

Mommy's ornament....Speaks for itself!

This ornament was bought for our first Texas Christmas, two full years ago when we said "Goodbye, Alaska!"

I thought he was too adorable NOT to include in this blog :)

This is a color-it-yourself ornament, colored by Stevie just a few days ago.

Our First Gingerbread House

Last year I heard of what I thought would be the coolest event....And when I called to sign Stephen and I up (Josh was deployed!) we were too late. Well, this year Shawna gave me an earlier heads-up and we got on the list to the Temple Library's "Make Your Own Gingerbread House" event!

Shawna and her family, Bonnie, the Stanfords and the Henke's were all there, too!

Shawna & her daughter, Summer
