Just a Walk in December


We've had some crazy nice days of weather this winter. We took advantage one day and went for a walk as a family.

 Annemarie got mad at Dad for taking so many pictures. 

 See Rexy's pointer finger? He's trying to give a thumb's up. Totally cute.
I'll take all the 70 degree winter weather days I can get!!



I often find Annemarie covered in toys. Literally, covered. Those brothers just may love her to death one of these days.

Happy 40th Birthday to Ken!!!


Ken celebrated his 40th birthday on Friday the 13th and who doesn't want to have their 40th  birthday on Friday the 13th?? We surprised him and had all 3 of his siblings fly out for the weekend! I was thrilled that I kept the surprise in tact and he had no idea until they showed up. It was such a fun weekend and we loved every minute!
 The kids loved their aunts and uncles. We were so glad they could spend some quality time with them.

 The kids couldn't leave Uncle Kale alone. They loved wrestling and playing with him. That night after he had left Rex told me he didn't feel good. When I asked what was wrong he said he was sad. When I asked why he replied, "Because he left me." So cute. 

 We took a day trip up to the chapel at Duke University. It was pouring rain, but we still had fun. 

 There may have been a few shenanigans. 

Happy Birthday Ken! You are the best husband and father we could ask for.

Putting up the Tree


One of our favorite traditions is putting up the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. Top it off with eggnog and cookies and it is the perfect night!
