Christmas Catch Up

I took a little break from the blog so am going to share some Christmas pictures. We had a fantastic few days just relaxing....and watching the Vikings FINALLY make it to the playoffs.

The girls and their stockings. The calm before the storm!

The best present Scarlett could ask for - whatever wrapping paper came close enough to her to grab....and eat. Then the present mom wanted for her.....

a sock monkey....and the sweetest little tutu.

The older girls got harmonicas from Grandpa Don and Gramma B. The music sure is pretty! Beats that old organ we had for a few short months.

Mark built this GeoDome on Christmas Eve. Without help from our very tall neighbor he would still be working on it. Thanks Rusty!! We could not have done it without you! Can you tell we are trying to entice all of the neighborhood to play at our house??

The girls also got field guides to birds, bugs, trees, and wild flowers. They are a big hit. Emma went out with her bird guide and binoculars, sat on the top of the dome, and did some bird watching. When I went out with her we actually saw a Red Bellied Sap Sucker, Blue jay, and some kind of yellow finch. That is the benefit of having some woods in your backyard!
