Holiday Warmups

We've been busy with the build up to the holidays, and getting ready for the big trip to KS. Here is Thomas posing with the advent calendar, which both boys are excited about taking turns picking an ornament each day.

Thomas made a gingerbread house in school this week, and we all had fun taking it apart to sample it!

Today we visited the annual train display at the local museum, which captivated us all for awhile before naptime.

We'll post again in the new year!

Snow Day!

The white stuff has arrived! Goodbye grass, see you again in May. We celebrated the arrival of winter with 8 inches overnight, which cancelled both school for the boys and work for Steve and Kristin.

We had a fun day off, spending lots of time playing outside, shoveling, going for sled walks, baking and playing inside, and watching movies.

Andrew entertained us with some caroling while we were coloring and waiting for lunch. You might have to turn the sound up to get the full experience.

15 weeks

Oh my goodness! This pregnancy is officially no longer a secret.


We celebrated the first real snow of the season this weekend with a snowball fight, followed by snowflake cakes and a nice warm bath.
