Christmas 2017

Happy New Year!
We had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas and Paisley's birthday over the last couple of weeks.
Here's a bit of what we were up to...
Sledding. We live right near a small hill perfect for sledding. It's fun to watch the kids, but I hate being cold. And I'm always cold. Looks fun though. 

I found the girls and Oscar snuggled up, sleeping the same. Cuties. I hope they always do this.

Oliver flew back to the North Pole, but before he left, he had a few tricks up his sleeve. This one was fun on shower night. Poor planning, Oliver.

Oscar is still getting the toilet paper. It's so annoying, but you can't get mad at him when he's so sick.

Speaking of sick...Dec 23, Everleigh got the stomach flu. Not fun for the peanut. You can see Oscar knew she wasn't well and laid right on top of her to comfort her.

Ev was still not feeling well during the day on Christmas Eve. Craig worked, which meant I had to stay with Everleigh. Luckily, Grandma Bonnie took the kids out to my mom's house so that these three could celebrate with my side of the family.

A few hours later, the little lady was a new woman. She all of the sudden perked up and wanted to go to Grandma's house...so we did.

We were sad that Craig couldn't join us on Christmas Eve, but so happy he was able to be home on Christmas morning to celebrate..... Paisley turning 10!!
Paisley loves:
Hanging with her friends, Minecraft, You-tubers (especially Unspeakable and Dan TDM), Dance, Noodles, Nutella, Oscar, Being in Charge, Stuffed Animals and Fuzzy Socks.
Her birthday ornament this year was a video game controller.

Christmas morning!

 After presents and breakfast, we went to G&G Bergs to celebrate with Craig's side of the family.

 Then back home for birthday gifts, whew!

While the boys were at hockey one night during break, the girls and I did makeovers. We laughed so hard! Love these little ladies.

Paisley chose to have her 10th birthday at the Mall of America. She invited four of her best friends and I took the girls shopping and on rides. It really was a wonderful day. Paisley loved every second of it and I'm so happy it worked out so well.

The boys have at least one hockey game a week, with at least one practice in there too. They rotate being goalie, so this week was Hudson's turn. Holy...I'm happy Craig was off the day he was goalie. That's a lot of work!

 We celebrated both Makyah and Paisley's birthday and New Years Eve at the Lokken's house, one right after the other.

Cheers to 2018!  Wishing you all good health and happiness!
