Welcome to 2011...a little late!

Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Yes, it's been since October since I've last blogged. Wow! Where does the time go? Let me tell you where our time has gone:

As many of you know, we put our house up for sale in July. After a long and stressful process our house sold and we moved into our dream house. Yippee!! We love it here. The kids moved in with no issues. Not even an, "I miss our old house" out of Jack. We were very impressed. Both of the kids did great in their new bedrooms and surroundings. They are loving all of the extra space. We are enjoying cooking in our new big kitchen and love our gas stove. We have lots of room for visitors, so come on over.

We had a fun and busy holiday season. We traveled to Milwaukee and Stevens Point. It was great seeing all of our family and spending extra time with them. The kids had a blast opening their presents and playing with their new treasures.

Jack and Maddie spent a few extra days in Stevens Point with Grandma, Grandpa and Auntie Anne. They even got outside to build a snow fort.

Nathan and I were able to spend some time exploring some new restaurants and an old favorite as well. We even enjoyed a night out with our dear friends Tom, Val, Jeff and Liz!

We hope to get outside and play in the fluffy white stuff that's decorating our yard. How pretty!!

Making Christmas cookies for the first time in our new house.

Jack and Maddie in front of our Christmas tree.

This is one of my favorite pictures of Maddie. Such a beautiful girl. Thanks, Grandpa Dave for capturing this moment for us.

Jack playing with snow blocks that he received for Christmas.

Auntie Anne and Maddie playing in the snow.

In front of Grandpa Dave and Grandma Debbie's Christmas Tree. I think this was right before we were leaving to go home. If I remember correctly Debbie had to stand on the sofa with a blanket to block the light so Dave could take a picture...funny!

Sofia (our niece), Maddie and Jack in front of Grandpa and Nana's Christmas tree.

Jack being a goof ball and trying to put a stocking on his head. This was at Grandpa Kyle and Nana's and was our 4th Christmas celebration.
