Christmas Time is Here!

Merry Chrsitmas! The Kline family has been enjoying many holiday festivities this month. It started off with a visit from my sister and her family of six! We had such a great time watching movies and eating great food. We made a trip to Hollydays at the Children's Museum. Garrett enjoyed the snow slide, Frosty the Snowman presentation, and playing in the water tunnels. We were also able to go to Disney on Ice with Miss Jaime and his friends at Kids Korner. I was able to take the day off and join in the fun. Garrett was awe the entire show and would wave "hi" to each character. I am not sure who enjoyed it more Garrett or myself! Friday was Garrett's Christmas party at Kids Korner. Garrett has not been a big fan of Santa this year unfortunately. In all actuality he does not really understand this whole Christmas-thing yet. However the time as a family has been wonderful. This week Brandon and I are both off from work and we spent the weekend home watching the snow fall, watching Christmas movies and baking cookies. We are now in Newburgh for the holidays and looking foward to more time with friends and family. May this find you and your family full of God's joy and peace. Happy Birthday to Jesus!

What we're thankful for...

We had a wonderful yet busy Thanksgiving holiday in Evansville. We were able to see both sides of our family, friends and 150 members of my high school class at my 10 year class reunion. If I had to sum it up in one word though it would be "babies". We were blessed to hear of several upcoming births this spring! We are now able to announce that Brandon's oldest sister Dawn and her husband Harry are expecting their first child in April. We are excited about our new nephew and our growing family. Also our great friends, Jen and Kris that live in Ohio will be having their first in May as well as a good high school friend of mine, Stacey will be having her first in July!! We are joyfully welcoming in the Christmas season and spirit in the Kline household. The tree is up, great music is playing, and presents are being wrapped. But most of all we are so blessed with health, happiness and great family/friends! Below are pictures that our great and talented friend, Amanda took a month ago at my Alma mater, Butler University! Enjoy and God Bless this holiday season. Let us not forget the real reason for the season, the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ!
