Worst. Blogger. Ever

It's been a while and we have no excuses. We will post more soon, we promise. :) Anyway, here are some highlights of the past few months until then.

*The four kids are growing like weeds. Sarah started 5th grade and Matthew started Kindergarten.
*Sarah played the violin during a special musical number at church and did great!!! She is preparing at school for middle school orchestra which will begin next year.
*Johnny still is not potty trained. He only goes when he wants a piece of candy. (So much for positive reinforcement). No clue on how long he will wear diapers solely to torment his parents.
*Hannah has broken so many pairs of glasses that our optometrist is working on building a monument in her honor. She has mastered her favorite phrases, "Help Me!" "Matthew!!" and "Up Please". Otherwise whe enjoys breathing and barking like a dog most of the time.
*Matthew's fall soccer league (AKA the Bad News Penguins).
*We made our first ever Thanksgiving dinner with guests who ate and everything!! There were no fires or instances of food poisoning. Yay!!!
*John has lost 25 pounds in spite of said Thanksgiving dinner.
*We bought our house and are really excited for our planned projects in the Spring.
*We'll be in Pennsylvania from Dec. 21 until January something if anyone wants to get together. That is, if any of our friends still live there.

Hi guys! I'm sad that we are in az and won't see you! It is weird how many people have moved away! The Alders are still there. Cindy jokes that they may never leave. Enjoy the holidays! Melinda
