More Snow!!

This winter we have had a lot of snow. Unfortunately it's been in small bursts and it's so cold outside that you can hardly stay out very long. It was in the teens when it snowed this time. The snow was so dry you couldn't even make a snowball out of it. We tried! Good thing is that it came off the driveway with barely a push.

Sam liked playing in the snow but didn't like getting snow in his mittens. Can't really blame him! He wouldn't keep them on and it was just so cold. Bath and hot chocolate as soon as we got back inside!

The Nutcracker

Tita and Mami took Natalie to see the Nutcracker this year. She loved it. It got a little long towards the end but I think she had a good time. What's next? She's asking for ballet classes.

Christmas at Tita's

Tita's house at Christmas is always a whirlwind. It's hard to even remember what happens sometimes. This year Sam was ready to take on Natalie and Izzy and open as many presents as possible that weren't his. Baby Zoe was also here, just one month old. We all had a wonderful time eating and enjoying family in pajamas.

Santa is Here!

Christmas morning at our house with the two kiddos, presents and coffee. Doesn't get much better than that! Natalie was so sweet. She opened Sam's stocking first and started handing him the presents inside.

She finally moved on to her doll house.
And dolls.
And stocking.

Last but not least, new Rapunzel pj's!

Christmas at Nana's

This year we spent Christmas Eve with Nana. Vernie and Uncle Chris were also there to celebrate. Lots of presents, good food and wonderful family.

Of course, we can always count on Nana for new books. A new hat for the cute girly! it matches her purple coat.

Christmas with Scott and Jen

Scott and Jennifer gave Natalie some games this year. Go Princess (Go Fish) and this princess memory game. She loved them both! Thanks Scott and Jen!

Playing go princess. She has a piece of chocolate on the knee while it's her turn. Just like Jennifer did! Cute!

Out of Order Sorry!

Some how I missed posting this picture. It's just so cute I had to put it in out of order. This was before Christmas.

Christmas at Mammaw and Pappaw's

As we do every year with the Lyvers side of the family this year we had Christmas a little early. We went to Mammaw and Pappaw's house and had some great food, company and of course presents. As always Natalie was completely spoiled. She loved it of course!

Getting Ready for Christmas

We had to take advantage that Sam was napping and put up the ornaments in record time. I need to remember though to buy new plastic ornaments next year. Every year we break several during this process and they shatter and go everywhere! Natalie was a great helper and she did the one in her room all by her self!
