Snow Day!

Avery out in the snow! Fun times!

Maci's first time in the snow, hmm...wonder what it
tastes like? Not bad, she says! Yes, it's only white snow!

Say "Snowball!"

Snowball fight! Woo hoo!

Our house Jan. 2009

Baxter laying on his new favorite toy, Maci's stuffed dog.
He thinks the fireplace was made for him!

Matthew's 6th Birthday!

My two birthday boys! Daddy is wearing Matthew's
new Star Wars helmet.

Matthew had a Star Wars themed birthday.
We celebrated with an indoor swimming party
at the YMCA.
Make it a good wish!

He was sooo excited for his birthday!
In Matthew's own words,
"This is the Best Day Ever!"

Mommy's wish for you is to always be this happy!

Christmas 2008

Our Christmas Tree this year!

Avery was too big to sit on Santa's lap this year! So sad!
She was tired after her performance in the church
Christmas play! Good job sis!

Matthew & Santa!

Maci wasn't so excited about Mommy
handing her off to some strange man
in a red suit! It's a classic picture!

Trying to get all 3 to do the same thing at once
isn't easy. Oh well.

The Kletke Family
Christmas 2008
We had a very wonderful, blessed Christmas this year!
It was wonderful to be able to spend it with so much of
our extended family!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

We traveled up to Stillwater for Thanksgiving this year.
We had a wonderful meal and then decided to take a walk around
Boomer Lake and take the kids to play at the park.
The weather was beautiful too!
That evening we all went bowling for 2 hours...what a blast!
Of course, Marc still beat me...only by 1 point the first game.
Maci and her Uncle Bryan watching the pin action!

Me & my new sister in law, Gayle!

Marc & Grammy Meg! Are we having fun or what?

Courtney giving Maci bowling lessons!

Back at the house, Maci decides she wants to be a pianist.

Avery showing all the loot she won, playing the arcade claw game!
She was sooo excited, it was like winning the lottery!
She made sure everyone got a stuffed animal. So sweet!

I got a picture of Matthew playing at the park, even though
he kept trying to avoid me.

Courtney and Maci swinging. Maci had a blast playing
at the park!

So did Daddy!

Avery and her new cousin, Paige! They've been friends since
birth and now they are relatives! So cool!
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year and have so much
to be thankful for! I feel so blessed to have such wonderful
people to call family.
May God Bless each and everyone one of you!

A Day at the Zoo....

It was free admission day at the zoo on Wednesday so we took
the family and headed out. Marc was off work and the weather
was beautiful!!! We spent 3 hours looking at the animals and
playing on the playground there.
As you can see, even Marc had a good time
playing at the playground! Such a good sport!

This poor this isn't Marc napping...ha ha....all he wanted to do was take a nap and I
insisted on taking his picture. He kept opening one of his eyes at
me, like enough lady....

Maci enjoyed the playground too.

The kids enjoyed posing in front of all the different
animal statues. Okay, they didn't really want their
picture taken as much as they really wanted to just
crawl around on the statues....

We had a great family day though and wore everyone out. All
3 kiddos were asleep by 8:15pm.

Kids, Cats, and Happiness...

I am on my annual quest to take the perfect
Christmas picture of my kiddos. Saturday we went outside
and took some pics and I have to say they were
actually pretty cooperative.
I really want one of our whole family to put
on our Christmas Card, but don't have anyone
to take a group shot of us.

Matthew & Maci clowning around for me on
a random afternoon.

Avery & Maci snuggling up at bedtime.

kI was posing them in the yard and Maci started
giggling and then we were all laughing.
Thought the pic turned out cute.

Last night we put the kids to bed and plopped down on
the couch to watch a DVD, which we never get to do.
The cats, Baxter & Frankie, were cold, so Marc turned on the fireplace for them
and I couldn't resist taking this of the two of them cuddling up.
Pretty sad when the cats get more use out of the fireplace
than we do.

Matthew pics!

Matthew was a good sport and let me take some
pictures of him playing in the backyard.

So sweet!

He's growing up so fast!
