In November uncle Troy came for a long-overdue visit. We were all thrilled. The kids had fun entertaining him. And he found out what it was like to not have a moment's peace. Later that month we spent the Thanksgiving weekend at Grandpa Norman's farm in southwestern Minnesota. The cousins had fun decorating sweatshirts with a holiday theme.
The Holidays Begin|
Grandma and Grandpa Klomp were able to come to Minnesota for a visit in mid-December. They got to see the girls in their school Christmas program. Shelby's class dressed as travelers and sang "Go Tell it on the Mountain". Annie's class played carolers and did a wonderful song and dance number. Grandma and Grandpa even got to stay around long enough to see Joey's Sunday School program where he stood and watched the other kids sing a few carols.
Christmas at the Farm|
We spent Christmas weekend in southwestern Minnesota with the Sieves. Sue and Dan's families both joined us at the farm with Grandpa, Jer, Cate and Bob. One of the highlights was Christmas Eve mass at St. Kilian church. The nativity scene is so beautiful. And Aunt Cate did a great job singing and playing the organ to make the mass so beautiful. It's too bad Joey slept through the whole thing.
The cousins had a great time together|
