2014~Week 52

Christmas Eve ice skating was cold and fun.  Desi and I opted to just watch :)
Christmas Eve movie!  The Hobbit Battle of the Five Armies was great!
Thanks for the movie passes Mom and Dad!
Desi and I had fun filling these stockings once the kids went to bed :)
All ready for Christmas morning:
We enjoyed a breakfast of sausage, quiche and cinnamon monkey bread with my parents before opening gifts.
Hope crying for joy...her main gift this year was tickets to see Wicked in Denver this July!!!
Blurry but cute...these kids were very blessed with gifts this Christmas.
Let the games begin!
Our friend Kevin came over and spent the afternoon and evening with us.  He was a good sport and learned a few new games with us...Revolution was fun!!!
So thankful for a wonderful Christmas Day!!!
CA family, thank you for the gifts...we missed you greatly!
Owen's favorite gift...a Minecraft light up TORCH!
Cute dog wishes it was warm outside so we could do I!
Kids playing store on Friday...they had so much fun with that new cash register and play money.
Levi and I had a fun date on Saturday...pie at Village Inn and then we walked to the Hotel Colorado and counted Christmas trees...over 50 decorated trees!  
We had to google how to find the penny in our FindIt game...and it worked!  We found it!
Today's icy window on the was SO SO SO COLD!!!
These ones were on the inside of the windshield:
It warmed up to about 21 today.  The sun came out and Emma took Peterbilt on a walk...still too cold for me...and I'm recovering from a runny nose/sore throat all week.
I can't believe how fast 2014 went!  We're going over memories from the year and working on our 2014/2015 papers today and I'll share some of those things in another post soon.  We have so much to be thankful for and look forward to another year of walking with God.  Thanks for journeying with me via this blog this year :)  Not sure if I'll do weekly posts again in 2015...we will see.

2014~Week 51

Owen and I started a new book this week...Robinson Crusoe.  I've never read it before but so far we both really like it!
This dog is so cute.
The annual viewing of White Christmas with my daughters.  The boys don't care for it.  I grew up watching it and love it so much!
I taught Emma and Hope how to play Backgammon this week.  It's such a fun game and the fact that it comes in it's own little suitcase is awesome too.
We finally got some SNOW over the weekend.  Desi and I walked to the River Center Sunday morning for an all gathering.  The kids went to house church Saturday night so we let them sleep in.  The walk was so beautiful!
Sledding Sunday afternoon:
Desi took the kids sledding on Monday and this afternoon as well.  I came down with a sore throat and runny nose so I've been taking it easy the last few days.  I did manage to get out this afternoon for some groceries and had my breath taken away from this gorgeous view!!
Desi introduced the kids to Pee Wee's Playhouse on Netflix this week.  It's crazy!  But there are some fun parts like recipes to try and art projects...Levi was inspired by one episode to make this cute puppet:
It's been another great week with a few ups and downs but such is life! 
May you have a very Merry Christmas!!
