Christmas was amazing this year, as always.
Here's little Ruby helping me make Christmas morning breakfast (pumpkin pancakes and eggs).
I am constantly thankful for family that lives so close by and is so involved in ours and our children's lives. It is a blessing that I never take for granted.
We watched videos of little Kev soloing...
Ruby helped Aunt Julie and Lori go feed some horses and chickens they have as a side job. I *think* she had a good time...
Candlelight service at my sister's church.
Cousins giddy with excitement to sing "Jingle Bells" with hundreds of people.
Nora was given the absolute cutest little shoe/sock/bootie things I have ever seen in my life. Every picture you see of her from now on, she will be wearing these. LOVE them on her chubbers wubbers legs!
After sitting on couches and opening presents and eating lots of food all day, I realized "oh! I have grandparents here! I have babysitters!" I rallied the Kiehn kid troops to go do a workout.
It was like 27 degrees and reeeeeeally windy (the "feels like" weather was 17) so I can't say that it was fun like I had hoped. I puppy-dog-eyed my husband into doing it in the first place and I felt a little sheepish when we were all doing burpees in the tundra.
And, in mine and Kevin's true nature, we hope to take down the tree and all the Christmas decorations and say BRING ON THE NEW YEAR!
Yahweh has so much for us in 2013. I love new beginnings!
