Bringing in the New Year!

We brought in the New Year up at the snow!  It was Austin's first experience of playing in the snow.  I absolutely loved watching him figure it all out.  The beginning was so very frustrating to walk in, to move in, to go where he wanted, but it didn't take long to figure out how fun it could be.

Happy Birthday Blair!

We got to celebrate Blake's sister Blair's bday together in a fun way!  Chelsey, (my cousin and just so happens to be Blair's roomie) planned a whole day for Blair.  After breakfast, Chelsey took Blair to get her toes done and look who else showed up!
 Aubrey Rose got her first manicure.  She loved it.  She said it "tickled and hurt a couple of times, but only a little."

Then, we went to lunch together.
And for dinner all the family joined us and Alan (Blair's boyfriend).
Happy Birthday Auntie BB!!

Christmas night with the Smittcamp's

Christmas evening we went to our Uncle Bob's for dinner.  This was us leaving
 and we are ready to go!
 There were 52 people at Christmas dinner on Blake's side of the family.
 This year we had 3 tables!  Each year our family continues to multiple!

 Great Grandpa with the great grandchildren that were able to make it this year.
 And the Bill Smittcamp family!
Whew!  Four straight days of Christmas and we were ready for a day of rest the next day!  Christmas 2013 did not disappoint!  LOVED it!!

Christmas Lunch with the Chandlers

For Christmas lunch, we spent the afternoon with Blake's moms family, the Chandlers.
 I LOVE watching our kids with their Great Grandparents.
 It is too cute!!

 This is Blake's grandparents and their kids.  :)
 Blake's fam
 All of the family together...
 And to think it all started from these two!  What a wonderful legacy they have lived.  We love you MomMom and PopPop!

 Then, we ended the afternoon with another drive session in the new cars Santa brought.  Austin can't figure what he likes better...being driven by his sissy or 
driving his own.  Either way, they are both pretty darn happy.

Christmas morning...

For Christmas morning, both kids slept in till 8am!!
We had to be at Mimi and Big Papa's by 8:30,
so it was some quick celebrations with our little family
and then more fun at Mimi and Big Papa's.  
And boy Santa did not forget to go there!  :)
Blair's boyfriend Alan joined in the Christmas morning fun.  (First boyfriend to be apart of Christmas morning with the family!)  Whoo hoo!
And my cousin Chelsey was with us too!  Blair and Chelsey are roommates too!  I love being family and friends!

Big Papa leading them on a little hunt for their gift from Santa.

We had a blast and the day wasn't even over!
