Going to the church with cousins on Boxing Day is easily one of our very favorite traditions.
As we were preparing for Christmas Mckinley kept telling me she wanted to get something for Christmas that we could use on boxing day at the church. I kept ignoring her knowing we were giving the kids a hover board for Christmas. We ended up giving them two hover boards and they have been so fun. It was a blast to have them at the church. We had such a good time and hung around all morning.
Emmy, Liam, and Jackson.
My mom did a bowling and pizza party for the kids for Christmas. It was a lot of fun.
Todd and his family drove from Seattle for a Christmas surprise since they are moving to Germany for three years in April. It was great to spend some time with him.
After bowling the kids were able to play the saran wrap ball game that they missed out on Christmas Eve.
So then randomly we went bowling again the next day for Lincoln's birthday with Brandon's family. It was a lot of fun.
New Years Eve Chinese food. It was so yummy!!!!
This time we decided to make our mess in the church instead of at home. It was pretty fun!
Ross and Karen set up pictionary with the huge white board. The kids loved it!
Jason and Shannon brought their kareoke machine and we had a fun dance party with glow in the dark bracelets.
And then of course the poppers.
Jackson has been so good to sleep in his car seat wherever he go. He really is turning into a pretty good baby! After the party we went home and I started a puzzle and the kids watched the old Jumanji movie with Robin Williams. Tyler, Mckinley, Brandon and I all made it up to midnight. Tyler was asking what happens at midnight and I told him nothing. New Years Day we sat around in our pajamas all day and did the puzzle and were just lazy. It was hard being sick for the holidays.
