2016 is gone. How did that happen? We've had a busy few weeks celebrating school birthdays, friends and family birthdays, school holiday parties, Christmas, Paisley's parties and NYE. Phew.
As the kids get older, I get fewer pictures. For some reason, I didn't think that would happen. I mean, they move way more when they are toddlers. But below I did my best to capture some of what we've been up to over the last few weeks.
The boys both had an event at school that both Craig and I could go to. We played math games and made gingerbread houses. I love seeing them in their school environment.
We had a joint family birthday party for Makyah (14) and Paisley. With their birthday just a week apart and so close to Christmas, it makes sense to combine them.
Our beautiful tree with gifts galore. Including Rock Band for the whole family. (Insert hands over the ears monkey emoji here!!)
The kids opening gifts...
After gifts and breakfast, we played for a bit and then got ready to go to G&G Bergs.
I love these four.
Next up, Paisley's friend birthday party. Usually, Paisley celebrates with her friends somewhere...she's done the roller skating rink, the movie theatre, Michaels....but this year, she wanted a circus theme at home. Totally fitting. It's a circus here every day.
A couple of days later, we went to the cities to celebrate the holidays with my best friend and her fam. We started by jumping at Sky Zone, a gift from the Reiter's.
Great toe-touch Hudson!!
And....uh...you too Paisley. :)
We finished our weekend by celebrating the new year at the Lokken's house!
Cheers to a happy and healthy 2017!
I have lots of goals, but most of all, I hope that I can slow down a bit. Time is going too fast. My baby girl just turned NINE. Nine. I remember the day I had her like it was yesterday. I need to soak in this crazy, hectic, amazing life a little bit more.
Happy Birthday to the most strong willed, flexible, smart, caring, sensitive, noodle loving, dancing, dog loving Christmas gift we've ever been given. We love you, Miss P! Happy 9th Birthday
I look forward to sharing more from the Bergie Bunch in 2017!
