Christmas Morning 2015

The kids had a blast opening all their gifts from Santa.  The first to appear on the scene were Logan and Nathan.  It was 7:15!  We woke up Karis and Owen.  I know can you believe it, Owen Hite is sleeping in late!

Christmas Eve 2015

Our family enjoyed our Christmas Eve together.  We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon with friends and a great worship service at church tonight.  Here are a few photos I snapped of the kids dressed up today.
Owen always puts on his serious face when we bring out the camera.

Karis, ready for the day.

Getting a good picture of Nathan and Owen is much harder than it looks.

We could not get a picture of Logan without Charlie.

Brotherly love

Worship time

This morning we made a birthday cake for Jesus and a Christmas tree Rice Krispy treat.  Logan was the chef and Owen did the decorations!

Logan shopping for the foster care backpack drive at church. Each backpack contained a Bible, toy, pajamas, tooth brush and tooth paste.  They are given to foster parents as they pick up the foster child. Shades members filled 600 orders that went to Alabama Baptist, Lifeline and DHR.

Our family enjoying the rock wall.

Nathan had a new set of wheels.  He is really skilled and loves his new mobility.

Logan got out of school early this week, so we enjoyed lunch together at Zoes.

Karis received her own communication device.  She is doing really well with it.  She also started talking a few weeks ago.  For a child who has not communicated for 9 years, her vocabulary is exploding!!!

Preston and I out on a date.  First the company Christmas Party and then hot chocolate at Octane.
