It Snowed! Jan 6 2017

It snowed, it really snowed. (Well kind of...) But anyway- it was fun!

The flurries came down all Friday afternoon.


So the teachers let the kids go outside and catch snowflakes and play.

After school, the dusting was enough for a few snowball fights. 


Until everyone's hands were frozen. Then they came in for cookies and cocoa. 


And later that night-- Chinese food! January is off to a great start.

Happy New Year 2017

Hello 2017

We ran in the new year with a party.






 
 Then spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the best January weather.



 

 This year we hope to continue traveling, spend more time outdoors, be kinder, make healthier choices, and live with a grateful heart.



Life is filled with Moments of Joy-- let us take the time to notice them.

So this is Christmas 2016

Christmas 2016 came and went. And it was good...

We watched lots of family movies.


We went to the Palace Theater to see "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "Charlie Brown's Christmas".


We made a pallet for the girls so they could sleep under the tree.


 When we watched "Home Alone"--- Maisy decided it was too painful to see the bad guys get hurt.


We went to Grandpa's for an early Christmas and got to see Amanda again!











 This is my favorite thing to see when I run in December. It makes me happy.


And here are my favorite girls-- all dressed up on Christmas Eve.




 Afton was an acolyte at the Christmas Eve service.






And then it snowed in the church at the end of the service. (Which is good because it was 70 degrees outside!)






Coco's birthday is on Christmas Eve-- she turned 4! Sweet little dog. 


Jeff made his famous homemade nachos for our Christmas Eve dinner. 


And then we all sang karaoke.





On Christmas morning-- Santa came through in a big way! Yay for Santa! The girls woke up at 6am!








And Jeff cooked again! Homemade monkey bread-- worth all the carbs!!








That night we went to the movies and watched "Sing". Jeff and I fell asleep. 


Then we came home and had homemade pizzas. 



The next day we went to Jenn's new house for another round of Christmas.





And then since Christmas was over... we took it all down. The girls were my best helpers this year. They pretended they were elves, preparing for the next Christmas. They chirped and sang. They are so sweet and fun.

We got to have a fun lunch date with Grammy.


And we spent the last Friday of 2016 with a friend :)


It was a great Christmas!
