Well, I met my quota on photos on my first blog, 2009-2011.  So, here's to 2012 as our story continues!

Missed October

I always forget to get pictures off of our phones!  Here are some I missed from October.  We went to a friend's (Charlie) birthday party.  The kids got to do paper mache and all sorts of fun things!

A beautiful fall day!
Taysum and Bailey listening to a book on tape at Grandpa and Grandma's and eating kettle corn!
Taysum's class went to the Pumpkin Patch and got to choose their very own pumpkin.

Christmas Day

It was really special to have Christmas Day on a Sunday!  After church, the kids went right back to their tablets! :)  Before I got the camera, B was leaning on her hand, too and it was just too funny! :)

 Later we had Christmas dinner with everyone!  The kids had a great time being downstairs with all their cousins!

The adults had probably an even better time hanging out together upstairs!

After dinner we played a fun new game the Nielsens brought to share 

I would have to say, this is probably what our kids enjoy most about going to Grandpa Ned's and Grammy Penny's house!

 Home again, home again, jiggety-jog...

Christmas Morning

The nice thing about Christmas morning pictures is, they pretty much speak for themselves! :)  I do have to note, however, that Hayden's reaction to his race track was priceless!  He was so excited he could hardly contain himself!  He was doing a little happy dance!

 He already knew what he was getting, so I made him pretend to be surprised!
 We LOVE the monkey hat, Gpa and Gma A!

We got Innotabs for the kids this year and I was prepared to spend most of the morning figuring it out with them... once they had them, though, they acted as though they'd been using them all their lives!  It was amazing!  They didn't ask for any help at all!

I must say, Christmas morning with kids is the best! :)
