Grandparent tour

We spent a wonderful weekend visiting our parents and family.  Colin will be on standby call for the next few weeks, so this was our weekend to go visit our parents and celebrate the twins birthday and Christmas with them.

Lots of good conversations, meals made by our sweet moms, my dad reading aloud from a terrific book, and plenty of time to relax and etch the memories in my mind.

Colin and I spent the hours traveling talking about some great parts of the bible and just life in it's ordinary day to day plodding.  I love my hubby and how he cares for all six of us.  Dreams of a soon to happen house addition and a spring vacation made me happy.

This is such an amazing time of year and joy is in all the nooks and crannies of the day, in our hot morning coffee and watching the snow fall.

 Rereading Luke 2 daily and thankful for family and friends to spend time with.  Merry Christmas.

Twin's 7th Birthday

I can't believe the dynamic duo are seven years old!

We decided to have Liam and Tommy's birthday at the children's museum again this year.  We invited both Tommy's life skills classroom plus Liam's first grade classroom.  We were so happy with all their fun friends that made their party so much fun!

 This is my spin art which I absolutely love!

Hannah and I had fun with the photo booth.

 All the kids really liked doing spin art.  I'm heading to value village soon to get a salad spinner so we can do this art again!

Tommy loves Elmo *almost* as much as Nemo

This is the spin art area before all of us really enjoyed it!

Liam loves angry birds.  We had cupcake "cakes" made which was so easy to serve.  No forks and no knife needed.  It's my new "cake" for all parties now!

Tommy loves the kids museum.

Lots of friends and fun was had!
