4.1.18 – Easter fun!

1 Apr

First, we had our neighborhood Easter egg hunt. Oliver was a big fan of the Easter bunny. 😉

 

I also had a little naptime fun dying Easter eggs with my best girl.

Then after much anticipation, the weekend finally arrived. We headed to my parents’ house for the first holiday in their new place. The boys weren’t overly interested in the egg hunt, but they enjoyed Easter dinner. Laney loved every minute and was sad when Easter was over. It was a blessed weekend with family!

12.27.17 – Christmas Recap

27 Dec

It’s hard to believe Christmas has come and gone and the new year is fast approaching. We have enjoyed having Daddy home this week and have started a little purge/cleanup process while still finding lots of time to relax and unwind after a very busy December. But before we rush into another year, here’s a little recap of our holiday:

Kyle enjoyed a trip to Las Vegas with the Wagner boys to celebrate Jacob’s 21st birthday. The Wagner girls plus Logan hung with us all week, which was a lot of fun. We went to Indiana later in the week to reunite with Kyle have Christmas with the rest of the Wagner crew. It was our last time staying in Mimi and Grandpa’s house – the house of most of childhood. Very bittersweet!

We left early Christmas Eve, and our drive home ended up being quite eventful. We ended up in the ditch in rural Indiana. The tow truck ended up getting stuck trying to get us out, so we were there over two hours before finally continuing on our drive.

Not exactly the Christmas Eve we had planned, but certainly one to remember. The kids were troopers, and most importantly, we were very thankful to arrive home safe and sound 8 hours later.

After an eventful Christmas Eve, we enjoyed a nice, quiet day at home. Laney and I went sledding in the afternoon, which was so much fun. She declared it, “The best day EVER!” while we were hiking back up the hill, and that was all I needed to make my holiday complete after the hustle and bustle of the weeks prior.

We hope your Christmas was just as merry! Happy birthday, Jesus!

12.2.17 – Santa Visit

2 Dec

We shockingly had no tears today at our annual Santa visit despite our time slot being well past nap time. Kyle gave Santa’s beard a good tug on accident when he picked Greyson up of Santa’s lap. Good thing his beard was secure. 🙂

Added a couple more kiddos to the photo this year! ❤

11.26.17 – Thanksgiving Recap

26 Nov

We had a nice visit to Indiana over the Thanksgiving holiday. We had several birthdays to celebrate – including a 33rd, a 30th, and a 21st. Plus, we enjoyed a trip to the Purdue/IU game and had some fun dressing up for breakfast club. And of course a tasty feast with our family to top it all off. We came home with stuffed bellies, tired eyes, and full hearts.

I also included a few pics from Laney’s feast at school. Their little performance was the cutest. She was thankful for Greyson, Oliver, God and her family. ❤

10.31.17 – Happy Halloween!

31 Oct

Happy Halloween! Hope y’all had a day full of fun and treats! We kicked off the holiday celebrations with super fun weekend with my brother, sister-in-law, and nephew. We started the festivities with Trunk or Treat at our church Thursday night, and Laney has been fired up ever since. Our weekend also included a little pumpkin carving/decorating.

We had a costume rehearsal so I could snap a few pictures of the kiddos (and attempt a selfie):

Then it was the big event! A fun party at school as Princess Elena of Avalor plus a busy evening of handing out candy and trick-or-treating. The boys loved greeting everyone at the door and inspecting the candy. Laney sat in a chair by the door waiting for everyone to arrive and was so generous with the candy that we ran out well before it was over. 😉 She then had a turn collecting treats with Daddy while the boys called it a night. A fun and exhausting day for all! Looking forward to the fun we will have next year!
