December 25, 2015


This was a GREAT Christmas! The theme seemed to be Art and Science mostly, and the favorites were tiny Thomas trains for Dylan, a foosball table for Garrett, a spy kit for Eli and a magic set (or tornado lab) for Owen. They loved choosing gifts for Dwight, Janet and each other at Faith and were so excited to hand out their presents. It was still a gorgeous afternoon, so we took the kids bike riding with their new bikes and then came home for a traditional dinner of Swedish meatballs and mashed potatoes and sang Happy Birthday to Jesus with cupcakes. It was a full day of playing with new toys and art supplies, games, learning magic tricks and spying on everyone. We played a great game of soccer in the backyard and then the storm rolled in. It dropped almost 40 degrees, crazy rain and loads of wind. Sadly, there were several tornadoes the next day that destroyed neighborhoods : ( It was a joy filled day for us though!
