New Years Eve

New Year's Eve ends a lot earlier when you are parents to three small children, hah! We started off with a champagne toast with the Riedel's and then went to dinner at a little cafe downtown and left the kids with Gramie and Pop Pop. It was nice to hangout kid-free for a bit and talk about our goals for the new year.


Christmas 2016

Christmas was so fun this year! It was the first year that Hunter understood who Santa was and really got in the spirit. Hunter got a bike, Wyatt got an art easel, and Davis got lots of hugs and kisses :)
They also got lots of clothes and toys from family members and have stayed extra busy in their playroom for the last coupe of weeks, which is awesome for me.
It's fun to see the holidays through their eyes!

Gingerbread houses and ugly sweaters

Thank you Auntie Mames for throwing the annual Ugly Christmas Sweater and Gingerbread Housemaking party. Aside from the crazy toddler chaos, it was fun to get the cousins together and celebrate!

Portland was so fun. Thank you Gramie and Pop Pop for watching the big boys. Robert and I ate some really good food and hung out with some really good friends. Davis was a dream traveler and we have no complaints .
It was nice to get away from the normal day-to-day life and have a short adventure. Planning our next trip!

Oh, Christmas Tree 2016

Trimming the tree and feeling grateful. As I was watching the chaos of two toddlers attempting to decorate our Christmas tree, while feeding our newborn baby, all I could think about was this was a moment I'd been waiting my whole life for. Making memories with them; hopefully ones they will look back on fondly. 

Santa 2016

Thank you Gramie and Pop Pop for hosting a cookie party. The kids had a blast and Santa was a hit (except for Wyatt)! The treats were delicious and the company was great :)

Family Portraits

A couple of weeks ago we trekked out to Toro Park to take some much needed family photos. It was pretty chilly outside and Davis cried the whole time, but we are happy to have pictures of our new family of five. The candid ones are favorites, especially the kids.
Thank you Oma and Opa for the gift - we love how the pictures turned out!
