some recent family pictures



It's been quite a crazy week or so and I hadn't posted some of the new pictures we've taken lately so I thought I'd take time to do that this morning. Here are some pictures of Matt and Hailey from this past Saturday building "Frosty" in our backyard. Hailey gathered all of the extras herself, including M&Ms for the buttons. I used some red food coloring for the mouth- a good idea but now the front of Frosty is tinted pink!



Here's Sarah checking out the goods in her stocking on Christmas morning.


Hailey and Matt with Hailey's new bike. Sarah got a bike, too, and really liked the knee pads that came with her helmet and kept talking about her new Hello Kitty "knee caps." It was way too cute.


Aimee in her sporty little car


One of our family traditions for Christmas morning: crepes


Matt and the girls before we started opening gifts


Sarah in her Thumbelina costume. She was so excited about it that she had to put it right on!


For the longest time Hailey has wanted a "wedding girl" outfit and kept asking me if I could make her a white dress. I lucked out the day after Halloween when I found a bride costume in the clearance at Walmart.



So, there you go! We had a wonderful Christmas despite the sickies going around our house. We are so thankful to have each other and to have family and friends who love us.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Personally, I thought it was funny how many different outfits they were wearing throughout the whole post...tells a little bit about how many times your girls love to change their clothes everyday...
