Out with Fall, in with Winter

I wish I could say we've been busy these past couple weeks, but in all honesty, we've been a bit lazy thanks to the cold & snowy weather we've had. And in all honesty, it's been quite nice. 

But, to back-track, Thanksgiving we had some of my siblings over and after eating we pulled out the Wii for some Super Monkey Ball madness. 

Here are my brother, his wife, my sister and Ryan playing their hearts out.


 Meanwhile, Aunt Valerie and Berlin were having some snuggle time.



Finley and Berlin got in on the action with the running game.




Since it was so cold the day after Thanksgiving we pulled out the tree and set up the decorations. If you see our tree in person, there aren't any on the back, a few on the top and then LOTS of clumps around the middle & bottom.  And, if you can believe it, control freak me, for the first time ever, hasn't even bothered to re-arrange the ornaments they put on. That's a first for me.... progess folks, progress.



Of course, after which Berlin wanted to have a photo session with Ryan - so cute!



So stocking's are hung, the tree is up, and the overflowing with Christmas cheer. Shopping & gifts are done! HOORAY! Which means that we can just enjoy the rest of the month and all the activities that come with the holidays.

Looks like it was a BLAST...and I cannot tell you how much we miss you guys. We had a great T-day down here in SoCal, but I don't think any of us managed to get photos taken....oh well.
