New Year's Day celebrations :)

It was a gray, rainy day for our walk this year!

Here is Brogan running at Amber, who is waiting to catch him :) It makes me giggle :)

Here he is running back again! That boy has so much energy! I don't know how he does it, especially since a full night's sleep is a rarity for him!!

Brrrrr :)

Aww, brother and sister holding hands :) Cute :)

Do you think that umbrella is big enough for Brogan?

Hmm, I'm not sure.... :)

Letting Avery have a turn, but not for long :)

At the end of our walk, we played at the park for about 2 minutes!

It was getting wetter and colder...

...and hot chocolate was sounding more and more like a wonderful idea...

...so we headed back to our house :)

Warm bread rolls, chicken and dumplings, hot chocolate with candy canes, marshmallows and whipped cream, pigs in a blanket, chips and dip, magic cookie bars, pumpkin pie.....it was yummy :)

Two very interesting conversations, I'm sure ;)

Kiddos watching a movie and causing chaos downstairs :)

Sam insisted on having his photo taken whenever he saw me taking pictures :)


Remote control helicopters...

The little ones were fascinated :)

"woowww!"

Phoebe more wanted to get her hands on the camera than have her picture taken....oh well :)

It was hard for Brogan to share his (and Avery's) new train track... Poor boy! hehe.

We had a great time :) By the end of the evening, Avery piped up and started telling people "You have to go home now. This isn't your home, this is our home, and it's time for you to go." Hahaha!

Thank you to our sweet friends who were able to come out and share the day with us!
