Blizzard Ball

Eric and I attended the Blizzard Ball this past weekend. I was so excited that I only paid $12 for my dress! I did have to send the pictures to my friends to make sure the dress looked ok - I knew Eric was going to vote on that one regardless of what it looked like on me because of the price. Eric borrowed his tie from a neighbor so the event didn't end up costing us much at all! We left fairly early with some people from school who were at the event and played games over at our neighbors for a bit. Haven't been posting much...Life has gotten a bit crazy these days!

The boys new glasses

Grant and Ty both got new glasses last week and I've been meaning to post a picture, but it's been a little crazy around here. I think Grant's finally gotten used to wearing glasses again - his vision isn't quite as bad as Ty's - Ty never takes his off. Hopefully Grant will hang on to this pair!

Da Bears

Eric is very into the Bears - he must watch every game and that can be a bit of an issue living in St. Louis. He watches them at home when we can get them, but if not, we head up to Buffalo Wild Wings and watch the game. It's a great game atmosphere and the boys really seem to enjoy it. We received lots of new Bears apparel for Christmas this year, so we were all able to support our team.

Christmas at Grandpa Gary and Grandma Linda's house

On Christmas morning we headed to Eric's parents house and had Christmas with his parents, grandparents, sister and her family. The big, exciting gift for the boys was from Eric's parents - Guitar hero world tour. They loved it and have played it a lot!

Christmas at Grandpa Bob and Grandma Pam's House

After our Christmas on Christmas Eve we headed to my mom and dads house. We had a great time hanging out with my family. My brother Bobby was there and my sister Tobi and her family. The kids all had loads of fun opening gift and playing with everything.

Bobby forced mom and dad to pose for a picture - mom hates having her picture taken.

Our Christmas

The boys woke us up at 5 am to open presents. They had a great Christmas and received lots of fun toys and games. We have been very blessed this year and are thankful for all we have.

The tree...Santa seems to track in snow every year - some years it's more than others, but this year there wasn't too much since we didn't have any snow outside - he must have brought it from the north pole.
More footprints from santa coming from the fireplace going to the tree.

Neighborhood Christmas party

We had a Christmas party at the neighbor's house with a great dinner, some games and even a little singing. Just wanted to post a couple picts.

Here's Drew and Davis rockin the house

Bath time

We had a neighborhood Christmas party and a gift exchange and Drew received a very cool bath toy from Ms. Kimber and family. It was a pirate set that you can color foam pages and look in a mirror while you draw on your face. Of course Drew's version went a bit further, but he had lots of fun - he can stay in the bath for the longest time!
