We spend the weekend celebrating Christmas with the Leyes side. We had some bumps along the way but had a wonderful time. We were suppose to leave on Friday afternoon but with 10 inches of snow that fell during the day we had to change our plans and leave on Saturday. Brian's sister and family came down the flu and we were not able to see them. Margaret was very sad not seeing her cousin Jillian but did spend the night with her Uncle Dave and Aunt Anna! The kids did see their cousins Samantha, Sara and Dawson. The exciting news of the weekend was Molly started to walk! Yeah!
We had a wondeful time with everyone and we love you all very much! Thanks for making Christmas extra special!

It is hard to believe that Christmas is less than two weeks away. We decided this year to stay in Michigan for Christmas. It is getting hard to travel with santa gifts and it will be nice to have the kids wake up in their house for Christmas! We will be traveling to the Leyes side next weekend and then the Gifford side on the 26th. We hope that everyone has a wondeful holiday season!

It is hard to believe that Molly is one! We celebrated with a small party on Saturday! Both set of grandparents made the drive from Indiana to join in the fun. Molly had aunts and uncles there along with cousins and good friends! We had a great time with everyone!

It is hard to believe that another Halloween has passed. This year we had great weather. It was in the high 60's and the kids had a great night! Brian took the day off of work to help out with the parades and Margaret and Matthew's classroom parties. We had pizza with our friends the Hinds and then Brian took the kids out for Halloween! I stayed home and passed out candy! We had a great night and have many wonderful memories! Now it's almost Christmas! Well, we have 3 birthdays before that! Molly turns 1 on Nov. 13, Brian will be 32 on Thanksgiving day and Margaret will be 7 on December 4. Wow does time fly by!

We have had a busy few weeks since I made the last posts. I walked in the 60 mile Breast Cancer Walk! I will be posting pictures soon! Margaret went to a cheerleading clinic with the high school cheerleaders. She cheered at a Freshman game and she did a great job. She is busy with CCD, dance class and lots of homework! :) Matthew just finished his soccer season. He had a great time and really loved having Brian be his coach. They are going to start having guys night once a week. I guess you can call that bonding time! Molly is almost a year old. Time goes by quick! She loves to go up and down the stairs each day. :) She has been a joy and always has a smile. Brian and I enjoyed a night away and went to the Ohio State football game. We had a great time!
My mom and I thought I would make a great witch for Halloween! I decided that I wanted to be a nice witch! My mom made my skirt. Her good friend Allery gave her the idea. Thanks Allery! My friend Gabs and my sister are going to look the same but with different color skirts!

Life is crazy and busy in Grand Blanc for the Leyes family. I have been excited about the day that I would be the "Soccer Mom". Well, that day is here and I am saying to myself what was I thinking! Margaret started CCD classes at our church. She has that once a week along with dance and is getting ready to start swim lessons. Plus the homework! Times have changed with homework! :) Matthew has soccer every weekend and then practice once a week. He started Pre-K and has that 3 days a week. Molly, she is just hanging out and getting a lot of carseat time. She is so good and just smiles. :)
