December passed and now almost January!

Wow! How time passes so quickly! December went by in a whirlwind.  My little etsy shop went wild and we received almost 200 orders in that month which is about 3 times more than normal so my sister and I were very busy sewing and have been well into this month and have about FINALLY got caught up!! Our Christmas was great and the kids loved every minute of it.  They were spoiled and we all had a lot of fun.  Right after Christmas, Jake's brother, Nate and their family came to stay for a week.  It was a lot of fun and we were sad to see our California cousins go back home.  After they left, then my sister Emily and her family came to stay for a week.  We played hard and also while they were here, everyone sadly got the flu bug! Booo!!! But we managed to get over it and went back to playing hard.  The kids loved the break and having no set schedule so it was hard to get them back into the groove of things in January.  But we are all now back onto a schedule and so it's all good.  Jake also started working full time for the contract job he had and is still trying to get his business funded and running.  We are crossing our fingers and saying lots of prayers that it will work out:)

Visited Ice Castles with cousins (Kids loved it)

E loving his train set and table that he got for Christmas!

Lots and lots of sledding the last two months in our backyard! E was so brave and would even go zooming down the hill by himself! Crazy little man!

The Looming craze has entered our house! Sammy got a set for Christmas and everyone has gotten hooked including myself and Maddie!

We have now upgraded to making animals including the latest-a pony!

E climbing everywhere! Clever boy! He told me he fed my sister's fish and I didn't believe it.  Then I found him doing this and yes, feeding the fish again.  Same day.

These guys have been little buddies lately.  Playing and watching movies together.

Tried out a new hair color thanks to my awesome sister Emily, who did a fabulous job.  Me and E before Church!
