Why HELLO Winter!!

There was no sliding into this winter season, was there?
Holy schmoly!  ITS FRIGID!
Snow, ice, sub-zero temps... I realize this is Minnesota, but
c'mon, Already?!!!
A braver soul than I.... she was bound and determined to play outside in "the wonderful sunshine!!!"
Goofy girl!

Moving on...

We've kept ourselves pretty darn busy, but thankfully have managed to spend some time in the evenings just being together.
It may only be 20 minutes, but I cherish that time.
The girls glow when they have Mom and Dad's undivided attention.
We've been trying to make sure we put the rest of "life" aside for at least a short bit each day,
and give ourselves totally to the girls.  Especially with the holidays here, I want to make sure
I take time to enjoy the not-so-busy parts of my family.  

Here is a smattering of our recent events!

We celebrated my Stepdad's birthday!
Happy Birthday Alan! We love you!

~ We went to visit Santa!  It was a miserable day overall, but the Santa portion was enjoyable and the one time the girls were polite and attentive!~
Listening intently... if only they listened like that to me!!

~We relaxed

~We decorated our house and got ourselves a tree!

~Mike (our elf) made his way back to our home!  
He was playing a game of Memory with Comet, Rocket the Bear, and Chilly
 ~ My sister had a Birthday Saturday... We love you Alex!

~And we've done a little baking.  I don't have many photos, but just picture major messes, sticky
hands, sprinkles by the pound... you get the idea!

Cranberry, pear, and ginger salsa!   OMG! 

Now... it's time to clean up.  We've got a Preschool Christmas program tonight
and my kitchen currently looks like a bakery exploded.  Better get moving!
