December and 2013 Wrap-Up

Emily and I like to explore Birmingham sometimes to find interesting places to take pics.

The girls, ready for Christmas Eve Mass.
Tacky Sweater Christmas Cookies- a Knerr family tradition.

A little blurry, but this is Casey coming around the corner on Christmas Morning.

The girls got sleeping bags, and Wrigley made herself at home in the midst of the chaos.

The day after Christmas "hangover".

More exploring- we love our beautiful city of Birmingham!

And to start the new year.... a scan for Emily showing she remains cancer-free! Happy New Year!

Field Trips and Camping!

Prepping for camping- making sure the tent is perfect in our own backyards! Kids are definitely entertained.

Casey's kindergarten field trip to the farm!

Camping in October, and it was warm enough to swim.

Emily practices her slack line skills at the campsite.

My mermaid, Anna, is in heaven in the water. It was a beautiful campsite!
