 The first day of break and we were off to Wisconsin.  It was a very quick trip, less than 48 hours, and was packed full of winter fun!  The kids had a blast, but we absolutely got NO sleep. We got about 3-4 hours of sleep each night. Not very fun!  All in all, it was great to see and catch up with family!
Addi and Ty helped me make some chocolate covered pretzels

Michigan didn't have snow, but WI sure did!  Juan and Ty had a blast playing outside!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I love this time of year!  I love all the decorations, the snow, the music, I just love it! Every year the weekend after Thanksgiving we head out to cut down our Christmas tree.  This year, Ty has been much more interested in Christmas, so he was pretty excited to go get our tree.  It was quite cold this year, so we all bundled up and headed out! 
Checking out the first snowfall!

Look Mom! Snow!!

Kelsi, Kara, and Addi all bundled up on the ride out to the trees

Ty kept walking around saying, "Where is my cut? Where's my cut?" haha. He loved looking at all the trees!

At home with the tree before it was all decorated

Ty only wanted to put on the blue ornaments

Big helper this year!

What better way to start the Christmas season than new Christmas pjs and watching Frosty past bedtime!

Just had to take this picture..... this was our lazy morning, mommy making breakfast and the two kiddos watching Baby Noah

Happy Thanksgiving!

As always, we got to spend the Thanksgiving day at Nate's cousin's house.  This year, Ty was the perfect age to check out the farm which they live on!  He was excited to see the cows but I never dreamed how into to helping out he'd be!  Nate's cousin's had waited to do their chores just in case Ty might want to help too! 
Ty helping give some cows hay

He'd say, "hay, yummy yummy in my tummy"

Kara and Addi checking things out too!

Ty was on cloud nine running around with his cousins

He even got to feed a cow a bottle!!

Being pulled in a wagon to go check out the sheep

Back at the house, he loved playing with all of Colby and Caleb's toys

Addi was sick and we snuggled an awful lot that day!
