Thanksgiving has also just taken place. It was wonderful! Jon's family got to come and share the holiday with my family and I have to admit it is my favorite holiday. I love Christmas too, but I sometimes feel like the commercialism of Christmas outweighs its real meaning and something gets lost in the shuffle. Although, this year, I'm excited to see how Avery treats Christmas. Yesterday when we were at the mall she wanted to sit and watch "HO HO" (Santa) while he sat in his big chair and got pictures with other little kids. (By the way, the REAL Santa is here in Lancaster. No joke. That guy is the real deal.) She wanted to watch him from outside the gate and sometimes wave to him. When I asked her if she wanted to let him hold her or go and see him she said NO. I guess we'll work our way up to that. She is enamored by the Christmas lights. We took at drive out to visit a friend in West Chester last night and we played the "I see lights" game. Every time I saw a house decorated with lights I'd point them out to her and she'd sit in the back and exclaim, "OHH BOY!!!" It was hilarious! She is so funny. Jon was cracking up laughing.

So, a zillion other people and families have created blogs out there to let their friends and extended families know what is going on with their lives. I finally caved, and decided to do the same. Now we'll see how this adventure goes. I often have wanted to let people know all of the fun things that we are doing, but felt that some people don't often care to know. If you don't... delete this or feel free to not return to this site. (I promise, I won't be offended. I totally understand.) If you want to keep up with the Culbertson Clan, here is where the story begins... Okay, not really, but you get the picture. I will TRY (notice I stress the word TRY) to blog once a week or maybe every two weeks... We'll see.
