Fearless Babies!

One for the money...

Two for the show!

Phoenix - Bonifas/Landon Time

We got to spend the other half of our trip with my sister and her family. Here's a pic with the twins, Rose and Sienna. Lisa and I took them to Lisa's parents place to go swimming. WAY more fun than daycare!

Auntie Kate haning with Nora. I love Ben in the background!

Nora and Benny bonded A LOT.
Is this not the cutest picture.
Blame Auntie Lisa for introducing him to Fruit Ninja.
The girls hanging out at Lisa's parents.
They called them 'Lisa's Mom and Lisa's Dad.' :)

Uncle Curt jammin' with Nora!

Lisa with the girls

Me and the ladies playing in the backyard.

Phoenix - Johnson Time

We had a lot of play time down in Phoenix - it was so nice to relax!
Here are the babies doing a group hug.

Shell and Lisa. It was cold the first day, so they weren't crazy for wearing fleece coats in AZ.

Shell and I in our natural habitat; drinking beer.

Uncle Lee with Nora and Kendall.

I had to put this in here...I LOVE this swimsuit. So cute!

Lisa, Shell and the babies.

Grandpa Dale and Nora on her special staircase.
She must have gone up and down these steps 800 times!

Dale and Lee playing shuffleboard.

Me and the babies taking a nap.
Turns out I ended up with a sinus and eye infection. It was lovely.

Phoenix - Dale's 70th

It was Dale and Derald's 70th birthday on March 1st. Family came from all over to celebrate...with most of us coming from MN, ND & Alaska.

Here is a group shot on the day of the party. Good picture minus Nora turned completely around...we'll need to work on that.

One of Dale's presents. He LOVES John Deere, so he got a kick out of this shirt.

The twins in their matching aprons. :)

Cousins Visit

Mitch had a job interview and so him and Nicole came up to see us afterwards. We're still crossing our fingers for Mayo or Fairview!
Here she is hanging out with Nicole.

Nora she is snugglin' with Mitch.

How about a group shot?

Childrens Museum

We went to the Children's Museum for Lisa's birthday and Nora LOVED it. Here she is making bubbles. I had to get a close up of the apron...

Here she is driving the bus...beep!

Here Nora and Mommy are drawing pics.

Crawling through the tunnel at Earth World

Putting little boats down the slide

Nora and I at an exhibit.
And yes, I'm still mad the Bears lost.

Triplets on Video

This video was our favorite - it's so cute!

I don't think the kids had any fun. What do you think?

We Had Triplets!

We had all the babies last Saturday and it was like we had triplets! It was actually a lot of fun and the girls were so good. Here all the ladies are watching The Lion King (Nadi's' fav movie)
Tubby time!

Story time! Wave your arms like a monkey!

Lisa and I making a silly face at the end of the night. It was so fun to have the little ladies here!

Random Family Fun

We had a great December, so I thought I'd throw in some funny pics. Here's princess Mercedes staying warm at my sisters house. How rude was I not to move the pillow under her head!

My little Bears fan. ;)

Question: Is that an 80 pound dog laying in your lap like a little toy poodle?
Answer: Yes.

Does this picture make you hungry?

Lisa is not only a professional snow shoveler, but a model in the evenings.

Christmas Day

My parents came up and we continued our tradition of going to Auntie Amy's for Xmas day. Here's Nora in my reindeer hat. It's amazing - it has animal ears on it.
Perfect photo opportunity with my mom and dad.
Can you see the halo above my head?

My dad is a giant green monster...
AND, I bought my sister the Sherpa. Thank goodness my dad tried it on. It's not only a blanket, but a poncho and seat cushion. What has Amy done all these years WITHOUT it?

Nora and Auntie Amy.

Christmas Eve

The much-anticipated Christmas Eve tradition carried on again at Lee and Shell's. Our appetizer and cocktail list was in top order.
We even added in sledding this year at the Badlands in Hudson, WI.
Here Uncle Lee is snuggling with Nora.

Nora and Lisa dancing (queens).

Lisa got an old school popcorn maker from Lee and Shell. She always talked about her and Grandma Streigel use to make popcorn, so she's been dying to get one. Let me tell you...we have popcorn every other day in this house now...

Shell with Claudia and Ava. They both kept saying "I feel like today is probably going to be one of the best days of our lives." Adorable.

All the girls together for their matching jammie Christmas photo.
Great job on the jammies, Shell!
