Christmas 2013

We had a wonderful Christmas this year! Enjoyed lots of family time and got lots of very nice presents :) We changed up traditions a little bit by opening up our presents from each other on Christmas Eve morning. Here are some pics to enjoy:

It was nice to open them and give Emily time to play with all her new toys that she got. Then in the afternoon we packed up and headed to my sister Cori's in Sun Prairie. It was a wonderful time as it is every year. Food was delicious and it was so nice seeing my entire family plus Mary & Ray who thankfully come and hang with us each year!!

Our almost 6 year old on Christmas Eve!

We tried to get a picture of all 4 girls but Audrey was having none of it. She was a little tired :)

Finally got her to sit up and she gave us this super sad face!

Em loved her Unicorn stuffie from my Aunt Carol & Uncle John

And her super awesome suitcase from the Stampf's!
We got home a  little after bedtime and quickly set out some milk & cookies for Santa. Emily went to sleep like a champ and we woke up Christmas morning to.....

Santa came!!!!!

Every year Santa brings Em an ornament and this is the one she got this year. She said "Mom, I know Santa got me this one because he sees me get up each night and go into your bed." LOL!

After we got done opening presents from Santa we showered and got ready for another fun-filled family day. This time it was at Kory's mom's house in Cambridge. It was so nice to see everyone - especially Nathan who is in college out in Oregon so we don't get to see him more than once or twice a year now and Kristen, Parker and their 2 boys - Owen & Liam. They live in Montana so we don't get to see them often either.

We had a great time at both families and are so thankful and lucky to have them. We did miss our family who couldn't join us this year and we hope to see you all soon in 2014!!!!
