*i promise i tried to put regular pictures in this post, but it just wouldn't work. there may have been too many, so we are back to cheater blogging until i can figure it out*
our trip to see our family for christmas already seems so long ago, even though it was only just a couple weeks. we had a lot of fun and did so much and i am always grateful for family time. it really is a special time for us and the kids. i'm also super grateful this year for no epidemic of germs! i'm sure everyone else is happy we didn't bring the funk with us!
the kids had a great time pretending to be santa and delivering presents to all the kids of the world
we also had fun going to build a bear with our cousins, lilah and ady and uncle josh and aunt colleen.
the girls were sort of scared to build their own bears, but help from the moms made it cool, i guess.
but, walking around the mall together...that was their thing.we headed over to poppop, kelli and aunt alex's house on monday night to have dinner and open a couple of gifts. the kids had a great time and i don't think they wanted to leave!
last year, gianna was not game to have her nails painted, but this year? she was all about it!
of course, mimi had to get the boys some new pajamas...these elves look mad.
the girls didn't get left out ... candy cane jammies for all!
Christmas morning! Look Gianna, Santa drank all the milk!
the wonder of children on Christmas morning is one of the most magical parts of parenthood. i'm so blessed!
what do we have here? a real 4 wheeler? roman must have been a good boy all year!
i think he was in love at first sight!
there's lots of room to ride at nana's farm...
roman isn't the only one who gets to ride on the farm. gianna, lilah and eleena get a wagon ride from ariah.
and momma gets goofy with her cousin krista!
when we got to mommom's, the girls really had a chance to hang out. and if you look real close, ady is in on the fun too! and mommom has her babies right where she wants them...her lap!
yay...more room to ride!
he is ready for anything!
we made lots of memories with our family and were so grateful for the time spent together. can't wait for next year!
