So excited to have completed a year of weekly Koceich Family postings. 2011 was a blessed year and we expect even greater things to come in 2012.

After a precious time of reading about the birth of Jesus and praying as a family, we had some time to open a few gifts before more family came.

books are her favorite thing

can't go wrong with Legos and little boys

and you especially can't go wrong with anything pink and sparkly for Abby

now he feels like one of the big kids with his very own pillow pet

Madison gets her love of books from her Daddy

a Christmas morning snack to hold us over until the traditional breakfast burritos are made

coming out youngest to oldest to see what Santa brought

her first Toms

perfect for my silly girl

a mad game of mad libs with two really smart people. I'm sure it was a witty story!

Christmas #2 on the 26th at Grandma and Grandpa's house

I think he might be a little happy about his Lightening McQueen how his siblings are sharing in the excitement

...and more books! :)

Christmas #3 on December 27th at PawPaw and Mamaw's house

we love our cousins

post Christmas Prairie Lights with the Koehlers

can't miss out on riding the carasel on speed

Amber is the only one brave enough to spin around in an enclosed area with lots of little kids :)

Campbell's Feast! We love and miss you sweet Campbell!!

And finally celebrating a new year with precious friends! We are blessed!!!

Are you ready for some Christmas photo overload. Posting the unedited versions for time's sake. We're spending too much fun making the memories to worry about spending my time at the computer editing them! Sure is freeing!!

a Christmas choir concert, a gymnastics meet and a little mischief from Jingle the Elf...

* I love that my preteen isn't "too cool" to wear her Santa hat! :) That makes her the COOLEST!!

That smile says it all! My girl loves performing!


He's been trying to figure out how to get our radio to play more Christmas music all week!
