A Visual Christmas Replay

Christmas Eve dinner with the Murrill Family hosted at our house.

Gingerbread cookies did get made this year with Soren spending a morning with Gramma Anne at her home for the baking.

A very early Christmas morning digging into the stocking.
Soren and Sevi were a great team this year helping each other with the gift opening process.

Santa's Electronic Message

Santa is not only busy at the North Pole, but busy sending electronic messages to good little boys like Soren. We are saving this for Christmas Eve, so ssshhhhhhh if you see Soren before then!

Dodge Preschool Classroom Party

I love that Soren's preschool celebrates the holidays with a classroom party that celebrates in the classroom of the great outdoors. All the parents and children bundled up for the 18 degree morning and headed out for some snow mound climbing and butt sledding, real sledding, hot dog roasting and eating and then ending the party with a cup of hot cocoa with classroom buddies.

The Bundle

Sevi is at that awkward, in between mobility phase for winter right now. He can't quite walk, so it is a question of bundling him up warm enough to be able to sit and enjoy the snowfall. Thankfully, in Sevi fashion, he can lay contently all ready to go while I layer up Soren and then myself. It really is a feat to get out the door this time of year. It is only December and I caught myself already wishing for the ease of summer...... I don't think the past weekend record for the 5th biggest snowfall in MN history is helping.

Here is Soren walking with a pink balloon he received at a party the night before the big blizzard.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like........Winter

Here in Minnesota it feels like we drastically went from a warm Fall to a harsh Winter. One day the boys were playing "train" with the big wheel and wagon, then all of a sudden we were digging out the sled. Soren had to try one last spin around the block on his favorite wheels before storing the big wheel away for winter.
