Merry Christmas!!!

We are enjoying our first Christmas together with Maggie. We started the celebration tonight (Christmas Eve) with my parents and siblings. Tomorrow we go to the Spaids and my Mom's family. Then the 26th we go to my Dad's, the 29th we have the Davidson Christmas (a branch of Tyler's family), then the 30th to my Dad's side of the family. Whew! I hope Maggie can make it through all of those Christmas parties. If you counted, there are 6 big events to go to. Pictures from tonight are below. I'll post more from the coming festivities as they occur and I have time to sit in front of the computer.

Tyler and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. May you be filled with wonder and awe at the ultimate gift of all this Christmas Season - God sending his Son to Earth to reconcile ourselves to Himself. Joy to the World, the Lord is come!

Bathtime at Gramma's House

Maggie thoroughly enjoyed her bathtime this afternoon, and I snapped this great picture of her!!! She had real bath toys she could play with, but chose Gramma Spaid's foot scrubber instead. What a cutie-pie!

Crawling Proof

Ok, so the white tights were super cute with her outfit for church on Sunday (her skirt was previously removed), not so good for a day of crawling. Would you LOOK at how dirty her tights are?!? That is just nuts!

What are cousins for?

Playing, playng and more playing. And sometimes hugs and kisses and even hitting (we aren't encouraging the hitting part).

Grandpa's Family

The Rohrbach clan was all together for Grandpa's funeral on Saturday. Uncle Jim and his family came up from Florida, Tyler, Maggie and I from Nashville, and everyone else lives here in the Seattle area. We took a family photo at dinner at Tash & Britt's house Friday night. There are 2 children and their spouses, 6 grandchildren and their spouses, 4 great grandsons and 3 great grandaughters pictured.

Maggie and her iPod

Daddy entertained Maggie for quite some time on the plane ride to Seattle with his iPod. Evidence below.

Goodbye Grandpa Jim - We Love you!

Tyler's Grandpa Jim passed away Sunday afternoon. Please pray for the Spaid family as they deal with this loss of a dear loved one. We are headed to Seattle Thursday, the funeral is on Saturday. I am so glad that Grandpa got to meet Maggie.

In other news...

For those of you who knew, Tyler's job with Charlie Peacock was coming to an end on December 31. Tyler's been working and interviewing since September to find a new job, and he finally got one on Wednesday. He will be working at CTS Audio as their Controller and HR Manager. We are really thankful that he got this job. After several opportunities fell through in October and November, we were getting worried that he would be without a job in January. Not to mention the financial implications it would have on our Christmas celebrations! But, God was watching over us and there won't be any break in pay, which is such a blessing!!! Sorry Seattle family and friends, the new job is here in Nashville.

A little pre-Christmas Cheer

Here are two short videos of Maggie "dancing" to Christmas music, and one of her crawling on all fours. And note, those are 12-month PJ's she is wearing, and they fit her perfectly. I still cannot believe that she is actually wearing 12-month PJ's, they still look entirely too long when I just hold them up. The music in the background is from the Pttery Barn Christmas CD from 2000, I think.

This is a new thing i'm trying - posting a video on the blog. Not sure if I'm allowed to do that or not, or if it even works. We'll see.

If it isn't working, you can click on the links below like normal.
