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.
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?
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.
