Merry Christmas!! 2007 in Review...

Thanks for taking time to "stop and see us." We are so thankful for friends and family like you. Below you'll get a glimpse into our year. What a blessed year we've had. We hope and pray the same is true for you.

"We wish you a merry Christmas..."

"Yea ... I'm 1!"

"We LOVE craft-time!"

Try saying 'no' to this face...

"I'm Buzz Lightyear!"

Ella was our 3rd kid to get ear-tubes ... and all of us are much happier now :)

We did our part, but the Bears came up short in Super Bowl XLI :(
Carson still reminds me: "daddy, the colts beat the bears, didn't they?"

Somebody's 30! (I won't tell them who Kar)

We had a blast in Cancun with our good friends Nate and Tammy Henry.

Kari: "This is so much fun!" Eric: "Can I take this dumb thing off my head yet?"

We love the snow! Our yard ended up looking like a carnival of ramps, paths and hills.

Ella's favorite pass-time is pulling hair. She seems to prefer Leah's.

Still a mommy's girl (for now :)

Ella LOVES dogs. Unfortunately she breaks out in a rash whenever she's around them.


...and snow-bales!

"Daddy, why does mommy always make us wear helmets when we play with you?"

Ella still eats about anything she gets her mits on. Is that black lipstick, or....?

1 trampoline + 2 pools + 1 slip-n-slide + 2 swingsets + lots of kids = an AWESOME summer!

Mommy's Day is definitely worth celebrating when you've got a mommy like this one!!

Our princess is 3 (we're thinking about freezing her)

"Hey ma ... dad's gonna kill me if he catches me in this skirt and tiera."

"That feels good Cars ... usually you squeeze me higher."

"It's hard work entertaining my dad all the time."

Looks just like her mommy.

Leah's arms have stretched 24 inches in the past year.

Not sure if this is "dress up" or "dress down"?

Is that sisters Kari and Heidi from 1980? (Note: Leah and cousin Courtney)

"Don't let dad anywhere near our bushes."

Ella would like to be a plumber someday.

"Very funny dad!"

"Just call me homerun Holman!"

"Don't tell mom we moved the tramp over by the pool, ok?"

"I told you not to tell her."

"I love diving boards!"

Our kids get pretty excited about swimming.

5 years already ... wow, time flies!

"Yes! School starts today!!"

"I can eat 'em as fast as you can pick 'em."

Annual print-run to MN (good excuse for a family getaway)

All of us kids LOVE the water.

The music-video/head-moving/dancing-bodies thing in the Mall of America is hilarious ... a must do!

Cold weather camping.

No fear. (or no choice?)

Holman trip to Kalahari (Wisconsin Dells) ... A BLAST!

#4 - due June 20 ... we understand that you'll probably not invite us over anymore.

Leah and Carson invested some cash in a nice 2-story condo this year.

"We LOVE leaves!"

"Can I eat these?!"

"What a holiday ... knock on doors and people give you candy. Wow!"

Our weekend getaway w/ the Henry's to the Cities was another highlight.

The Satter Clan at Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for.

Ella has taken up skydiving.

Carson loves his teacher, Miss Myra. Are you blushing Cars?

Irene Santa: "Have you been a good boy this year?" Carson: "Hmmm... define 'good'."

The Bears vs Vikings Monday Night Football game w/ my parents was one we'll not soon forget, although I took some heat for my McMahon get-up and "Bring Back JIM" sign.

New home due May 2008
6301 S Calico Place, Sioux Falls, SD 57108
Please stop and see us if you're in the area.

May you seek God and be blessed this coming year!
