Getting the Christmas Tree

We had a great time getting a Christmas tree in our new neighborhood this year.  We were able to walk to the local coffee shop that has trees for sale.  The kids enjoyed helping pick out the tree and walking it home!  We even saw some friends from school at the coffee shop.  It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas (even if it is not very white at the moment!!)

Good Friends

 Best buds!
Here is a favorite picture from the camping party.  These two have so much fun together.  We are blessed that our cousins live close and love to be together.

Zeke turns 3!

I'm 3!
My nephew, Zeke, turned 3 last week.  My sister had the most creative birthday party that I have ever attended with a campsite theme.  The kids went on a scavenger hunt, hung out in tents, sang campfire songs, and ate s'mores.  They had so much fun.

Gus and Dane

These two are great buddies.  They have been in the same class for the past two years and they adore each other.  We are thankful for the great friends that Gus has at school.

This picture was taken by Dane's mom after the 1st grade choir concert.  I forgot my camera - oops!

Johan's First Recital

Johan was AMAZING in his very first guitar recital.  He really didn't even seem very nervous.  He just went up to the stage and got the job done.  We are thankful that Johan is enjoying his first year of guitar!

A Mississippi Hike

Over winter break, we tried to get outside and enjoy the nice warm days.  The boys went hiking with Kip and did some fort building.  Later, we all went back to visit the fort and to hike around the woods.  It is always great to be outside with the kids and spend time in our natural surroundings.  This area was a new one to me and it is always great to know that even in the city, we have so much beauty!

Children's Theatre

I was able to help chaperone a field trip to the Children's Theatre with Gus' class.  We had a great time seeing "Harold and the Purple Crayon."  It was also fun to supervise this great group of kids, which included Jamal, Huda, Gus and Lily.  What fun!

Even without snow, we have managed to sled a few times.  We have been to the Bancroft Meadows and here were are at a hill near Lake Nokomis.  The kids love it.  It is especially fun to watch Anja head down a giant hill in a sled on her own.  She's not timid, which is more than I can say for myself!  Maybe it will snow again sometime this winter so we can head out one more time.

Anja's First Trip to the Dentist

Anja had her first trip to the dentist back in January.  She was quite nervous at first, but with some encouragement from her brothers, she got her teeth counted and cleaned.  We still are missing Dr. Jerry when we head to the dental office, but we are happy that he is enjoying his retirement!
