January happenings

We got some snow early in January and everyone had a good time!
We spent a ton of time cleaning in the basement and upstairs over break. It was very cold, so Ellie was required to wear a vest every time we went downstairs. We ended up having a BUNCH of nerf gun wars down there when we got it partially clean. Ellie was looking so cute that I took a ton of pictures and video of her at 19 months!
We celebrated Jay's half birthday by doing some fun things at Scheels, and by going to Pizza Ranch.
Ellie has gotten into everything, and she really loves Minnie Mouse lately, so she was excited when I brought one home from a thrift store.
She sang "Jingle Bells" a lot:

She got really excited to hear that we were going to visit Ami her babysitter's house (she also added her hat when she heard we are going somewhere)


We did a few other projects and fun things like: A Hobbit Lego set that I got from Goodwill for $4, 

The boys were excited to receive the pens that Grandpa made them:


We had friends over and found them some matching PJ's. We love you Annie!
We had lots of Nerf gun wars (Ellie delivered bullets to everyone as a neutral party):



She has taken to singing Happy Birthday to you...as: "Happy To You". Here she sings to Jesus. Ellie gets herself all dressed up and wants to go to "Grandma's House" Her favorite dessert is none other than: Milky Way

Christmas fun with Grandpa and Grandma

Davina made the kids robes and they turned out so cute!
We asked Grandpa to get out the santa costume...which was so fun...until Ellie freaked out.
We ended up going back up home and then coming back down on Christmas day for presents. We first read an advent story, then we opened presents:
We spent a lot of time playing with presents:
And chilling...
We spent the last day doing some super fun sledding...
