Rocket Power

All this time I have been wondering what I could post and I completely fogot that I had pictures of us launching Isaiah's rocket! He got a rocket set from mom and dad for Christmas that uses air so you can continually launch it as long as you have these little plastic things that cover up the air hole and once the air pressure gets to a certain point these little things burst allowing the rocket to launch. So here are some pictures!
Preparing for the launch.
Timmy even came to watch!!
Setting up the rocket...
Consulting before the launch.

We are very thankful that Noelle is doing fine. We don't really know what happened, but nobody else has gotten it. We won't be able to go to Massachusetts but we are still very thankful that at this point in time we are healthy!
Our love to all!!

Quick Update

Well, nothing very exciting is going on here! The kids have been out in the yard skiing, but I still haven't gotten pictures :( So, I just thought I would show you some cute pictures of the kids doing their part with the animals!
We get quite a bit of milk for our pigs from the local stores and so we accumulate ALOT of milk jugs, not to mention all of the half and half cartons and stuff. So Mom has Isaiah, Noelle, Hannah, and even Timmy help crush them all and bag them. They don't really see this as a chore, so it is more of fun time for them than anything. They LOVE launching the caps all around the living room so Timmy can go pick them up and put them in the crates! We (older kids) rinse them out and then give them to the little kids to finish them off. You should here ALL the giggling that goes on!!
Here is Noelle launching a cap, it is the yellow thing right between Hannah and Noey!
Clean up time!
Noelle and Hannah work together while Isaiah and Tim work together!

Saturday we have a busy day with basketball games, a birthday party to go to, and getting the house ready for church. Hopefully I will be able to get some pictures of Isaiah's game up. I have only been to one of his games due to other things going on or because I have to coach the girls. The one game I did go to I wasn't expecting to stay so I didn't have my camera. I can say though that this team of boys is VERY good this year. They are all working together great and really trying to work hard to get even better. They have yet to loose a game this year so that is a really great record if you ask me!! Right now Noelle is down and out with something like a stomach bug. We are praying that it won't get passed around and that it isn't anything major, like... dare I say the flu?? We have been pretty healthy so far and are also hoping to be able to go to Massachusetts next weekend to see our 2 new cousins and also have a small family Christmas. Right now would be a really bad time to get sick!! Well, we will continue to try to stay healthy and warm!!
Love from us all!!

A Very Late Merry Christmas

Well, as usual, it always takes me longer then expected to get pictures up. I picked out a few of Christmas day to share with everyone.

As you can see Hannah is a little excited about finding Play-Dough in her stocking!

Timmy going through his stocking with Noelle.

After doing stockings, eating, and doing barn chores, we started opening gifts. The first one to be opened was the combo gift for Noelle and Hannah.... a cute little Holland Lop bunny!! Hannah and Noelle opened a box that had a fake stuffed bunny and a map. They had to follow the map to find where their real gift was. Once they found it and saw him they were so excited! They had wanted one for so long. Anyway, this is Noelle with the bunny. Hannah and Noelle agreed upon the name "Benjamin Bunny".

Unlike many parents, our parents put numbers on our present(s) so we don't know which presents(s) are ours. They have a master list and then when it is your turn they give you a number to find, so that is what Chris is doing.

Isaiah reads us the description on the back of the book he got entitled Bud and Me.

This year for Rebekah, mom put together a rather lengthy scavanger hunt to find her present. This is what she thought of it...

She quickly changed her mind though when she finally reached it!

Here is Timmy all decked out in some of his new PJ's.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Reynolds family!!!

Until next time,


Our Christmas Play

Recently many of us were involved in a Christmas play. I wanted to share a few pictures. (Sorry the pictures are not very good.)
Hannah and Noelle were shepherds!! They were so cute and did a great job.
Isaiah was a wiseman.
Rebekah was the main character's biological mother.
This is the whole group singing the closing song.

We all had a good time and everything went very well!!
