As I type this, the kids are coming down hard from two days of Christmas and colds! Both of them were so good all weekend, so I guess a little extra crabbiness is expected...

We started out the long Christmas weekend on Saturday with cookie baking.

After 9 hours of baking, our results:

Andrew and I went on a snowmobile ride over the weekend and did some work on the house.

Fun to see it from a different view

The "oh so fun to install" wood ceiling!

Duct work in the upstairs east side

Dreading they day we start to put the IKEA kitchen together...

(A week ago at Andrew's work Christmas party...

Aren't we cute...)

Christmas Eve!

The photo-shoot could have gone better...

We had a full house for Christmas Eve, Thea, Rob, Matt, Anita, John, and Gail joined us!

Cade got a tool set and decided to fix daddy's leg again...

Awesome light-up SpiderMan chair!

The next morning SANTA came!

Don't let the raisins fool you, her dad let her open and eat a candy cane...

Kind of like her brother got to...

Cade noticed Santa left his reindeer behind!

Eve having a quiet moment with all the new toys!

Cade typing a Christmas wish to everyone!

That afternoon we headed to the other grandma and grandpa's house!

More presents!

Merry Christmas!

We got a tree!

Last weekend Neil found a perfect tree for us across the field! We took the snowmobiles out and dragged it home!

Cade had to put the star on!

We'd put them up, Eve would take them down.

Cade pretty much decorated the whole tree. He even got the piano bench so he could hang higher! A couple of branches got multiple ornaments. I love how kids do it!

Check out that pout.

Cade can keep himself busy for (almost) hours arranging toys...

...and dumping water...

We celebrated Thanksgiving twice this year. First with all the Anderson's where a new toy box keep Cade and Eve busy all day!

A few days later we celebrated with my parents, where Jillian keep Cade and Eve busy all day!

The Monday after Thanksgiving was back to normal.

Then we got SNOW! After taking an hour to get the kids bundled up, we headed outside for 20 mins...

Sled rides...

Throwing snowballs...

First snowmobile ride with Neil

Eve didn't get to participate...

What they look like when they come in-

She just threw herself on the ground and laid there, like all the extra clothes was an incredible weight that just wore her out!
