Christmas 2016

Christmas 2016 started off with a lot of snow and a spa birthday party for Sophie...

How cute is her hair... love it!

Cupcake Fingernails!

We got together with the Potter side of the family a couple weeks before Christmas. Group kid shots are not so easy right now... this was the best one out of the bunch!

Ho Ho Ho

The whole family chipped in - including Nanna - to make these cute snowman popcorn snacks for Jake to take to school. Pinterest success!

I even helped out during Jake's classroom holiday party.

Christmas Eve we decorated cookies.

Lots of sprinkles for Santa!

Nanna and Grandpa gave Sophie the dollhouse house she's been wanting for months! We actually got it to fit in her room. I still gasp a little when I walk by because of how big that sucker is.

Lots of legos this year...

Christmas pj tradition!

Jake got lots remote controlled things this year!

He was so excited to give Sophie the Eiffel Tower he picked out for her.

The day after Christmas we celebrated with Grandma, Grandpa and the Pfhol Family!

Cousin Cutness!

Now we anxiously wait for March and our trip to Florida!! Nanna and Grandpa are sending the whole family to visit them during their month in Siesta Keys. We can't wait for the beach!

Elf Scavenger Hunt

Last week Mike and I took the kids on an elf scavenger hunt. There were elves hiding in different stores in downtown Iowa City. There were a total of 30 to find... we called it good after 17 and were in a store with $325 sweater. Here's a quick video of our scavenger hunt.

Catching Up...

 There's been lots of Christmas crafting going on lately...

 We made a snowflake garland!

This was our first year decorating a gingerbread house!

We headed to Madison, WI to visit Santa with Lorelei and Holly.

More crafting with Lorelei.

Lorelei and I decorated a gingerbread man together!

 Lots of snuggles with Holly!

She sent my baby fever into high gear!

We ended the weekend with lots of snow!
