Everyday life in pictures

This is definitely a frequent sight at our house. I don't know if this boy will ever get enough of cars, both miniature and full size. His eyes are always on vehicles, telling me about the make/models of cars that he spots on the road and in parking lots.
I often saw little girls wearing ponchos such as this one when I was a missionary in Bolivia. I bought one before I left, in case I ever had a daughter of my own. Well, here she is, my very own hijita linda!
Kenna's hair is finally long enough to fit in a pony tail!!
Wrestling with Daddy. Always a good time!

I guess her hair is long enough for a crazy mowhawk in the bathtub as well. :)

Christmas 2012

As expected, Makenna was very interested in the Christmas tree this year. She surprised me with how well she behaved with so many shiny, fun ornaments there were within her grasp.
Look Mom! Milk and gummy bears for breakfast!
Jake's favorite new toy is his little sister's Noah's Ark

A new stroller just for me, right?
Jake's friend Drew celebrates his birthday on Christmas Day. We were invited to come over and decorate gingerbread houses as part of Drew's birthday celebration.
The kids had a lot of fun eating all the candy decorating the little houses and playing with someone else's new toys!

All in all, it was a fun, low-key, family Christmas celebration.

Hip Hip Hooray for SNOW!
Especially when there's enough of it to play in!
 I don't know how much of the snow experience Makenna remembered from last year, but she certainly had fun running and jumping and eating it this time around!
Little  Monkey Man
 On your mark, get set, JUMP!
 Gotta love that smile!
