Happy New Year!

We had such a great Christmas this year!  It was sooooooo nice to be able to hang out with family for a couple of days and just relax.  Thank you all for the great gifts, we were thrilled with them all!  We will have pictures up soon, and Kelsi took a ton as well, so soon we will get her set up with her own photostream for you all to see...but for now, Happy New Year!

Winter Fun

All the snow we've gotten actually has a benefit or two.  One of which being I had Kelsi home for a couple of days to help me with Christmas goodie-making!  She had tons of fun helping me dip pretzels... go figure lol.  The three of us sat around the table dipping pretzles and listening to Christmas music, and Kelsi got a little carried away when "Little Drummer Boy" came on.  And of course, here are some pictures (don't worry, Kelsi had to wash her hands frequently).

Today we got some chain things for our tires (hopefully we can make it down the street now!).  While Daniel was outside putting them on, Matthias and I played in the snow...he especially liked using the snow shovel =)

Snowed In!

As I'm sure you all have noticed...we got just a tad bit of snow ;)  We've all been shut indoors yesterday and today watching movies and making Christmas goodies!  Kelsi and Matthias were very helpful, although Kelsi kept sneaking bites here and there.  I have pictures (of course), but we've lost our little cord thing so it will be a while until I can get them posted.  And now, a word from Kelsi...


And from Matthias...

Or not, he's too busy singing songs from "The Toy That Saved Christmas".

Christmas Lights Fun

Last night we went on a trolley ride downtown to look at the Christmas lights.  Matthias thought he was pretty cool riding in a "train" and Kelsi had a blast too.  It wasn't all that exciting for us adults, although Daniel and I won the only two raffle prizes (of course we were nice enough to let someone else have the second one), so now we have a little bundle of coupons and vouchers for some of the places at Riverstone...sadly not for Cold Stone though =(
