It's been tradition to spend Christmas Eve at Chad's dad's house so of course that's exactly where we were when Christmas Eve came!! Vicki made the most delicious best tasting Lasagna I have ever had!! She is so amazing!!! We kept the evening short....Santa was needing some extra help getting some surprises together before it was Christmas Morning!!

You were a hit up there! Just a singing and a moving and a shaking! Someone else that was extremely proud of her was Cashy!! As soon as the music would start he would start clapping and a dancing just a smiling and a staring at big sissy up on stage!! and when the song was over he would look back at me and point up on stage to Penny!! Oh he's just the sweetest! He was so proud of her!! He did this on every song!
Penny is just the best!! When she hits that stage my girl comes to perform! haha! She truly will entertain you!! She sang a solo to the song "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth!" and she did amazing!! She also got to introduce another song!! So she had 2 very important tasks and she nailed both!! My star!!!
She had lots of family that came out to support her!! She was so excited to see them out in the crowd!! That's probably why she put on more of show!! haha We were all so Proud of her up there!!

He's just the best! Always smiling, laughing and teasing while at it! He Loves cars, trucks, balls, and pretty much what ever Penny is doing! He just loves getting right up in her business! and I have to say she's pretty dang sweet for not pushing, whining and fighting him away! Penny is just the best with him!! He absolutely loves her! He follows her every move! It's really quite crazy how fast they pick up on learning something new from somebody else!! He's still getting in those top 2 front teeth! haha He's still pounding the food! He knows when food is around!! Penny always says "mom Cash has sniffed it out again...he's coming for that food!" haha! She's the best! and it' so true!! He's saying more words and tons of animals sounds! He claps for himself when he says a new word or sound! It's just the best!! He also claps when I'm doing reading a book to him or Penny! He loves Books! He also loves when I start to sing or when Penny sings he will start turning in a circle while trying to sing/hum along with you! He Loves Music!! Little Cash has especially enjoyed this time of year!! He Loves the Christmas lights and the big blow up Santa's, Snowmen ect. out in people's yards!! He starts a pointing and "ooooing and aughing! My favorite is when he spots a Santa (it can be anywhere...book...picture...blow up kind outside) he will point and say over and over "ho-ho-ho!" Oh my it's so dang cute!! We just can't get enough over here of our Sweet Cashy boy!! He's truly the best!! We love you the most big boy!!

My big sis has done it!!!! She graduated from Orthodontic School!!! She is officially Dr. Ence of Braces!! What an accomplishment! We are all extremely proud of her!! She has always been so driven and focused and by far the smartest one out of all of us!!! :) So we had a fun little adventure for her graduation!! It was just dad, Ryan, Eryka and myself that flew back to Oklahoma for her very special honorary ceremony! Just us kids with good ole dad!! Such a blast!!! We laughed, talked, cried and just completely enjoyed ourselves the whole time! Janeen met us there she had driven from Kentucky so that her and my dad could drive back home with some of Eryn's things!! She's all done in Oklahoma!! She's moving back on home and joining the Ortho Office that I work at!! Griffiths and Simister Orthodontics!! She starts Jan 5, 2015! Braces! Braces! Braces! I can't wait to assist her!!! We are going to have a blast working together chair side!!!
The top 2 collages are from her graduation ceremony! There were 4 to graduate and she was the only girl!! So proud!! So many amazing things were said about her! Her friends in Oklahoma are truly going to miss her!! She is such an amazing person inside and out!! Dr. Ence you're kind of a big deal!!
The next morning we went to breakfast then my dad and Janeen got on their rode to drive back to Vegas! We headed to Dallas, Texas!! We went and saw the Dallas Cowboys Stadium! My honz's favorite team!! So he was a bit jealous that he wasn't with us!! We wanted to go to the six flag magic mountain across the street but they were closed! We were so bummed!! But we got over it pretty quick as we ate a great lunch then headed to see my brother's best friend Ken and his family!! Ken was pretty much my other older brother growing up!! None of us had seen him or his sweet family for many years!! It was awesome seeing them!! We picked right up like no time was lost!! We got to play with their beautiful kids and Kim cooked a delicious dinner and an Amazing desert!! She spoiled us!! The whole trip was so wonderful from start to finish!! We are so excited that Dr. Ence will be back at home to stay!! I can't say it enough that I'm so proud of my big sis!! She truly is such an example in my life!! She will be the Best most Amazing Orthodontist ever!! She is a perfectionist!!! Perfect Straight Teeth at their finest!!! I love you sis!!! and You're kind of a BIG deal!!! :)
