Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  We start another year fresh and with hope that it will be a successful & happy year!  We look forward to everything 2013 will bring!  I was thinking this morning how this time next year I will have a 3 1/2 year old and a 7 year old and that seems so strange!  What's that saying?  The days go slow but the years go too fast or something like that.....but it is so true.  We look back at 2012 and we did got to experience some really awesome things.  It was a hard year in many respects but we are thankful for it. 

We've had a busy week of Christmas break.  We got to celebrate Christmas with Grammy on Thursday & Friday.  We all spent the night, played games, ate really good food, opened presents, went sledding, ate some really good food, watched movies and just enjoyed being together as a family.  Thanks Mom for making it a special holiday for us!

We also did a few other fun things throughout the week.  The kids met up with their cousins at the indoor playground for a morning of fun!  Daddy even took them to McDonalds for lunch after where they played at that playground too!

We got to use my free birthday certificate at Benihana's to enjoy a lunch on them!  It was so yummy and the kids always enjoy the show!

Marissa also got her try at Ice Skating with her daddy yesterday.  She did fantastic and is a natural skater! 

While watching the big Vikings game on Sunday, I tried to keep the kids occupied.  So we played some games and then we spent time styling "Calissa's" hair.  Then after bath, Brody thought it was his turn to get his hair styled, so he sat down in the doll chair and let his sister put all sorts of girly things in his hair.  Then he said, "I feel handsome."  He is so funny! 

So to end this post, here's a few more random pictures from the week!  Back to reality tomorrow in so many ways!  It's been a fun week and we are blessed to have time together!
