What a great Christmas we had in the Keller household! The entire Christmas Season
was a month of fun activities and time together. We hosted Christmas Eve with the
Keller family and has Christmas dinner at my sisters. Santa brought Emma the
highly sought after "real sewing machine" and she absolutely loves it. As we wind down
2014 we have so many things to be thankful for and we had a great year!

Twist & Shout...

Emma has been taking gymnastics since she was two and last year started going to Twist & Shout which is a gym for cheer and tumbling. She has been getting better all the time and worked with her Coach one on one this weekend. She says she would like to get on to a competitive cheer team next year, but we'll see. It's a big commitment for us and her.

Autumn in OKC....

OK, let me start out by saying I know the posts and updates are getting fewer and far between. That seems to be the nature of the adoption blog beast. In reality I don't think that many people even check this blog regularly anymore. With that said, I am not 100% sure how much longer I will keep it up. My goal has been to update monthly, but realistically it may be come a twice a year winter and summer update. We'll just have to see.

For now, we had a great trip to New York in October and the Belz family came to visit us as well. Emma is still doing cheer, tumbling, violin, and tennis each week. The 2nd grade has been going very well for her and things are rocking and rolling for Cathy and I in our own classrooms. We have attended OSU football games and the first OKC Thunder game last week. Emma has attended every home opener since the Thunder came to OKC in 2008 and she was 19 mos old. We had a great Halloween and look forward to the holidays. Overall a very good autumn season.
