Christmas 2011

So apparently I didn't even post about Christmas!!!  Awesome.  Our Christmas was fun, we had my parents stay with us and spent time with them and my brother and his family.  It went quick but I loved every minute together.

 So we stopped by a random teacher supply store one day in December and there was Santa!  It was great no lines, and they gave great goodie bags!  My camera was acting weird so here are the awesome pictures.

 Our awesome 70's wood paneling behind our Christmas tree with the crooked star.

 Morgan being silly.

 This was the best shot we were able to get with the girls in their Christmas dresses.

 This is what the next few shots looked like, do you like Whitney's shoes?

 Dad and the girls love Angry Birds so he bought the girls these great hats.

Merry Christmas....a little late...

St. Louis

So when the Cardinals made the World Series Jeff was pretty ecstatic.  Well, we were all pretty happy.  So, of course living as close as we do we decided to drive over for a quick weekend trip.  It was a fun trip and we had a great time staying with Jeff's sister Jen.  Jeff went to the game with a friend and the girls and I got to play with Jen and her fun family.  If none of you have heard about all of the fun free stuff in the great city of St. Louis you are missing out.  There are free museums and parks and zoo' is great.  Here are some pictures from our trip.

 Downtown St. Louis

 Rally squirrel, during the playoffs squirrels kept running across the field so I think the the St. Louis fans thought they were good luck so the Cardinals used it as a fun gimmick for the series.

 Fred Bird, the Cardinals mascot.

 Jeff helping the girls at the science center build an arch.

 They had it but it didn't last very long.  :)

 There we go!

 Morgan knows quite a bit about dinosaurs so it was fun for her to see what one would kind of look like besides the ones she see's on t.v.  This is a typical Whitney pose.  Silly girl.

 Morgan and cousin Lizzy on a 'hamster run' at the science center.  When you get it going it makes this giant marble run thing drop a big ball and go through this maze, it is pretty fun.

 Whitney and cousin Emily having a try, pretty sure Emily did all the work.

 Nikki wanted a turn.

 At the butterfly pavilion.

On the drive home.  It was a great trip.  :)

We also went to the magic house.  It was awesome.  It was my first time there and if I lived there I think I may take my kids everyday.  It was ginormous and so fun.  Lots of fun hands on things for the kids to do.  We were there on a free day (this is one thing that isn't free) so it was CRAZY.  To bad we didn't bring our camera.  We also went to build a bear and Morgan has been attached to her bunny ever since.  Thanks Cardinals for getting us back to St. Louis!

I don't know where she came up with some of those answers!  She is a funny little girl, that is for sure!!!  We are so blessed to have her in our home.  She is more quite than Morgan but definitely has personality.  She makes us laugh every day.  We don't know what we would do without our Minty (that is how she pronounces her name.  :)  ).  Love you baby girl!
