They don't stay little forever...

...which is kind of sad at times

but it is also always exciting to watch the changes

no matter what age, kids are so fun!

These girls are up to all sorts of new tricks


They love to climb and get a kick out of little chairs


I have seen KK take the mothering role to her "little" sister giving her her nuk or bottle when she is crying

Very Cute!


They ride around in big seats now


Their new favorite activity is to play peek-a-boo with each other and the giggle and giggle


KK has now completely given up crawling and is a walking maniac


KR...well she is getting there :)

A little more Christmas

...so recognizing how little I pulled out my camera with my family

I attempted to get it out more when we got together with the other side

I still did not do well but have a few moments captured




Grandma found the youngest boys matching shirts
 

The older three here wanted a picture of all the girls cousins and set this up themselves

Very cute!


G & G made blankets for all the grandkids

these were a big hit!


It was sister-in-law's 40th so all of us girls surprised her one night and went out to eat

It was lots of fun!

Christmas...finally

Okay, so it took me a little while

but here is Christmas

as it unfolded




KK with her new water bottle right before we headed to MN for Christmas
 

The girls at my parents' house (where I did not take nearly enough pics, it was just so busy! I don't even have pics of everyone there.  Check out my sister's blog as she has more!)


Cousins chillin


How many grandkids can fit on a couch with G & G


Some more cousins



My dad has become quite the woodworker.  This year each family received something my dad had made
our kids and my younger sister's kids received toboggans
they weren't quite ready so they opened a message telling them Grandpa had something in the works for them and then they got to see the project.



They are pretty sweet!  It is a special gift that we will all cherish.



More to come...
