Christmas with the Polmateers

Last night Jason's sister and her family came to visit and have Christmas with us! The kids were sooooo excited to see their cousins!

Sariah didn't make it, she had a long hard day of playing with the boys.

We enjoy getting together with you guys and can't wait to do it again soon!

Well, Christmas was a great time! Honestly, with Honda cutting production and my job being fairly insecure at this point due to Obama's planned gun bans, this Christmas is the Christmas we've had the least money to spend in the 8 1/2 years we've been married. I think this has been the BEST CHRISTMAS so far! We've spent a lot of time focusing on Christ and doing things as a family to strengthen our testimony of Him. The kids had a nice Christmas, enjoyed reading the scriptures, sharing the Gospel and sharing treats. They also really enjoyed the gifts they received, as did Jason and I!

Thank You to Grandma & Grandpa in Ohio, Aunt Karan & Uncle Joel, Aunt Carol & Uncle Steve, and Great-Grandma & Grandpa for the wonderful gifts you brought/sent to us and for the love you show us!

Tonight my sister-in-law, Angela, and her family are coming to visit from Indiana. The kids are VERY, VERY excited to spend some time with their cousins (Austin, Bolton and Caden). We always have a nice time when we get together!


Sorry this has taken me so long to post. The Saturday after Thanksgiving we took the kids to the United States Airforce Museum and we had a good time! (This is unusual for me, I have been to this museum so many times in my life that I have NO DESIRE to go back again...growing up in the Dayton area you went every year for school and other times too!) We looked at a lot of airplanes and saw an IMAX movie called "Fighter Pilot, Operation Red Flag" (This was neat!) Here are a few pictures from our trip. I especially enjoyed the Presidential Hanger.
