Christmas Morning!

I know her eyes are closed, but just wanted you to see her with it on.

Time to open family presents

Sally got Libby a pack of Olivia books!

Sally with her eyes closed again--Adorable Matching bags from the Craigmile family in Ghent!

Thank you Meggers for my new t-ball set and bath toy!!

Reading stories with Daddy
It was nice to have a low key morning where the girls could enjoy their new gifts.  Later in the afternoon we headed to the Phenow Christmas! We arrived just in time to play some minute to win it games!

My mom and her brother about to face off

"Peg-Leg" wins! 

My cousin and I went head to head

Can you guess who wins?

Heading back to the car to head home to have Christmas Dinner with Nana and Grandpa!
Happy Birthday Jesus!

Hugs for Grandpa before he headed out to Poosch's for the Gopher Bowl game!

Thank you to Nana for hanging out with the girls so mommy could meet daddy downtown for some after Christmas shopping, and then again the next day so she could get the car packed to head up to Alex for some more Christmas celebrations!

Morning Storytime with Nana!

We were celebrating Christmas with Great Aunt Jane, but Libby was pretty interested in her new Tickle Monster book--Thank you Christensen Family for a fun birthday gift!

So very blessed this Christmas season with Family, love, laughter, memories, food and gifts!

More pictures to come from Christmas celebrations in Alexandria!

Holidazzle 2013

We usually go to the Holidazzle on one of the week nights when it isn't so crazy busy.  It was a good thing I checked the schedule, they only ran is Fridays and Saturdays this Christmas season.  Supposedly this is the last year of it too :(

It's another fun milestone measuring tool.  One year Libby was in my belly, last year she was barely one and this year we didn't even need a stroller!

Libby got to bring her light up star she got in Disney World...Sally's doesn't light anymore, Libby did a good job sharing!

Pink Snow Bunnies

Love this stage that we are at right now

The girls continue to love to play "sleep"

They also don't mind the cold and love to go outside and play in the snow.  Our neighbors had a sled they're not using anymore so they gave it to us.

Libby asked to "go play shoveling, no wear gloves" a 2 year old is going to do what a 2 year old is going to do.  Even if that means not wearing gloves in 10 degree weather!

Thank you Nana and Grandpa for her very own shovel!

Sally had a blast going to see the Wizard of Oz with her Grandma and George and some of her cousins! She has been talking about it nonstop.  Thank you Grandma and George for the lifelong memory!!

We got to celebrate Bobby's 1st birthday all together...missing Joey and Emily!


Loving everyone looking at him

I am just a little envious that my sister has completed all of her baby's first years.  I'm sure she's a little sad, but mostly excited to get a full night's sleep and to have her body be her own again :)


Mmmm this is good!

Most of the crew

Watching the Grinch

Matchy Match snuggling with George
Happy Christmas Week!! Happy Merry Everything!!
