Sledding Videos

Lucy and Hank sledding... (Hanks is a little blurry, but proof he went out!)

Snowy Days

 We've had a lot of snow here in Indy the past few weeks, and we've been enjoying ever inch of it here! We've been sledding, made snowmen, and taken a few snowy walks.  Lucy really loves going out in the snow, but it's usually pretty short lived.  Same goes for Hank, but we haven't bothered taking him out as much because it seems like too much work!  Next year buddy...

Christmas Videos - Part 2

Opening presents at Mimi's

Watching Veggie Tales at Grandma and Grandpa's...

Christmas Videos

Here is Lucy singing the 12 Days of Christmas. My mom was singing this with all the grandkids on the way home from Christmas at the Zoo and Lucy picked it right up. It was so cute and I was really impressed! These videos don't really do it justice, but she can do the whole thing and even remembers verses I can't. Watch out American Idol, here we come!

Christmas Day 2012

We spent Christmas morning together as a family.  Ben and I had actually stayed up late assembling all of the toys my mom had gotten the kids, so despite the fact that we really only got them a few presents, it seemed like they had a lot of new toys around the tree!  We actually had to wake the kids up- I'm guessing this is one of the last years we'll have to do that!

Hank loved playing in the car, it continues to be one of the favorites around here... can't believe we didn't get one of these sooner!

 We headed over to my dad's around 11 for more present opening (round 4 if you're keeping track!). Hank looked SO handsome in his new sweater Aunt Katy got him...

 And then to round out our Christmas festivities we headed over to the Wehner's for Christmas dinner and more presents...

and a new jeep!!!!

Christmas Eve 2012

 We started our Christmas Eve at my mom's.  We had spent the night there, so that Ben and I could go to a friend's party the night before and also so we could wake up and open presents together (giving us one less place to drive).

 My mom got the kids lots of fun toys - a wagon, a basketball hoop, a little car (Hank's favorite), a t-ball set, a leapfrog tag reader, puzzles and lots more...
 After opening presents, we went to Bravo with all of my cousins where my Grandpa treated us to lunch.  This is an annual tradition that we've missed out on the past couple years, so I was glad to make it this year... even if we were running about 30 minutes late!

 After naps at home, we headed to my grandparents for dinner and present opening.  Everyone LOVES Lucy and Hank, it's so much fun to have them there with all the extended family.
 My grandpa also organized some of the cousins singing Christmas carols... it was pretty cute.  Lucy didn't say much, but she did great standing up in front of everyone.

  After dinner we put PJs on and started round two of present opening.  Always a super chaotic, loud and hectic time.  But I wouldn't have it any other way!
