Poem for Pops and Oma (Christmas Suprise)

On Christmas eve Will and I surprised the Hammond side of the family by putting this poem in all the gifts for our white elephant gift exchange. Nicole's two oldest, Will and Ella helped me get Oma to open the gift first. Will Giese read it to the family. I thought you might like to see...

Taco Bell

So the Lands and the Crums went to Taco Bell the other day. Yes, the commercial is true, the pregnant girl wanted something crunchy, cheesy, melty, and chewy. While there we discovered the worlds worst way to propose to someone! Jeni and I thought our husbands did a much better job. Check it out...

Happy Birthday to me!

For my birthday, Uncle Richard was in town so we went out to dinner at KT's. It was super yummy. Then the next night Will took me out to P.F. Chang's. After my awesome meal Will ordered the Great Wall of Chocolate. Seven Layers of decadent Chocolate. Then at work Melissa made a cheesecake for all the January Birthdays. It was a great week of sweets!

Real Snow

So I know I got super excited about the snow before but now there is real snow and it is super fun! Jeni and I took turns taking pictures while the our babies looked on. Here are some pics of our playground.

Happy New Year 2008

Will had the opportunity to go the the Stars game on New Year's Eve with Heidi and Kevin, so Will and Clint went to the game and Holly and I hung out with my parents, played games and when the boys came home rung in the new year. We had a blast.

after 12:00 we hung out around the fire pit and savoured our last few hours in Dallas.

Christmas Pictures

Will and I had a wonderful time at home in Dallas. We took lots of pictures. Here are some more Chirstmas Pictures.

Christmas Morning, I am wearing my new monogrammed scarf, "joy" sleeping mask, and flashy Christmas lights necklace. Will is wearing his new robe and his new Packers hat from Oma.

Kringle! YUM every Christmas morning we have Kringle for Breakfast. I Love the Almond flavor. It is a light sweet pastry.
