As I sit here in our beautiful new living room, I am reminded of all the blessings of the last month. Life surely has been crazy, but it has been fun! The kids grow and learn so much each and every day! I am truly EXHAUSTED from the fun of the last 3 days. But know I am blessed to have such wonderful family to spend time with. Christmas Eve was spent at Brian’s parent’s house. We had a fabulous Swedish dinner with the night being rounded out by Gramma reading “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Here are the grandkids “posing” for a picture:
Christmas morning, Santa had left Ethan a McQueen Bike and Nyla a princess rocking chair. Along with a bunch of gifts in their stockings! I didn’t get any of Nyla “opening” as she let Ethan open most of her gifts. But here is Ethan opening his and Nyla enjoying hers:
Christmas Night we went to Brian’s Brother & Sister-in-laws and had a wonderful family time. It was even nice enough for some to get in a few games of Cornhole! I posted some other pictures on our picasa site (there is a link to the right of this).
Lastly, today was spent as a quiet day at home with just the 5 of us, including Belikan. I could not have asked for a better birthday celebration! And the greatest gift of family was enjoyed all weekend long. I am truly blessed and feel grateful to have you in our lives!
