Christmas 2015

Well it has been a while since I have really updated the ole blog. I haven't really found motivation these days because of what I wrote about the other day. I also did not take a whole lot of pictures while I was in Minnesota, but I will share what I have. We spent a little over a week in Minnesota and I am so grateful that we could go. Here are the highlights from our trip.

-We had game night with our good friends where we played our usual game of Settlers of Catan. We always have a good time with them and we were happy to celebrate in the pregnancy news of two of our good friends.
-Richard and I were able to be on babysitting duty for my niece and nephew. It was not very long, but we love them and it was fun to be alone with them for some time. When we were done with babysitting, we played cards for a bit with my family.
-We met my sister at an indoor park with the kids one morning. It was fun to be able to run and play with both our niece and nephew. We put Brynlee in this bucket that spun around and every time it swung she would get the biggest smile on her face. So stinking cute.
-I had lunch with a good friend and it is always great to catch up. Even if our time goes far to quickly.

-I spent a few days with my husbands family. We enjoyed just hanging out, watching movies, and of course opening presents together. We also went to take our annual santa picture with Richard's brothers and then took them shopping to get gifts for the rest of the family.
-We spent time with my family for Christmas as well. We taught both my sister's new husband and my dad's new wife our game of cards that we typically play so that we had all eight of us playing in a tournament. We also had a gift exchange and played and intense game of cranium, boys vs. girls.
-I bought this cute little outfit for Brynlee and she looked adorable in it. Also, Richard is obsessed with this little one and I loved watching them interact. He still keeps talking about how cute she is. I mean we love our nephew too and he's fun to play with, but he's not as interested in us as we are in him, haha.
-Our last and final adventure in Minnesota was my dad's side of the family's Christmas. He has a very large family and most everyone was able to make it to Christmas this year. It is always great to see all my cousins, aunts and uncles and catch up on their lives. I have one crazy family, but I wouldn't trade them for the world.

We had so much fun in Minnesota, even though I did not take many pictures as I usually do since I kept forgetting. I realize that most of my pictures are of my niece, but I don't even care. I love that sweet little one so much and next time I see her she will be one! Stay little my baby.
