Christmas 2007

This year we stayed here in Oklahoma and ate for two days straight.  Christmas Eve we had lunch at the Fredericks with the missionaries, Grandpa Trumper, Amber, Travis, Sandra, Rebecca, Sherry, Susan, Mary Alice, Charles, Corbin, Mary Frances, Sydney and myself.  The food was plentiful and wonderful and we enjoyed being around family and friends.  We missed Sarah and Justin's family.  Later that evening we went over to Ross and LaVerda's for dinner with Aunt Dale, Cade, Crista, Kevin, Nicole, Brooklyn, Janie & David Ware, Grandma Carol and JR, Todd, Stephanie, Josh and Brianna.  We ate, read a Christmas story about Christ and opened presents. The house was full of kids  enjoying each other.
Christmas day my girls had to be woken up to see what Santa had brought them and then they were so overwhelmed they just sat and stared at the presents.  My parents were over early to enjoy the girls.  Sydney and Mary Frances enjoyed their gifts from everyone.  Cade dropped by as well as Ross and Laverda.  We later went for lunch at Carol and JR's and saw Carter, Robyn and the kids.  We then had not had enough to eat and went to dinner at Christa and Kevin's. 
We missed Carson, Mike and the kids, Mary Frances and Gary and Justin, Katie and the kids and of course Sarah and Cullen.  We wish everyone a merry Christmas.

This year Mary Frances and Gary drove down from Colorado to spend Thanksgiving with the Oklahoman Cowans.  We had dinner in Tulsa at Carter and Robyn's.  Everything was wonderful. The guys enjoyed watching football, the kids played and the women enjoyed talking.

Beaver Creek Colorado

Corbin is a wonderful husband and set a spa weekend for me and a friend in Beaver Creek Colorado.  I took my mom for her birthday and we had the most relaxing weekend.  We exercised, shopped, ate and spent half a day at the spa.  We loved the scenery, absolutely beautiful.


I always see all these cute pics of kids in the fall so my best friend Tori and I decided to take pics of our girls in the leaves and trees in her front and back yard.  The pictures turned out so cute so here are a few of Sydney, Mary Frances and Ellen.

Sydney's b-day

This year Sydney turned two.  I don't think she understood it was her birthday just loved all the gifts.  She is very into dolls so she received dolls, stroller, bed, and accessories for dolls.

Pumpkin Patch

This year we went to TG's pumpkin patch.  We went early so there would be lots of pumpkins.  We had the whole place to ourselves.  Mary Frances favorite part was the hay maze and Sydney loves sliding and swinging.  Overall we had a ball and had a hayride at the end.
