The boys skating at the park

We have had some gorgeous winter weather the last week, and we are trying to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. The boys are enjoying skating, and Tom has been taking them to our park to practice. Fr. John, I thought you would enjoy these pictures. They are doing really well.

Christmas with the Pierces

We had the most wonderful visit with the Pierces, Heils, and Browns for Christmas! We really just enjoyed being together with delicous meals and hanging out at the house. The children had the time of their lives together at Grandad and Grandmom's home. Some highlights of the week included; going to the Brandywine museum to see their amazing train display, the gift exchange between the cousins Christmas night, a beautiful lunch outting with just the adults a couple days after Christmas (an incredible babysitter watched ALL 8 children!), the Brown's wonderful wine and cheese night, and witnessing the children play so well together . The whole week was very relazing and peaceful. Thank you Mom and Dad for all your generousity. It was a beautiful Christmas.

Christmas with the Bergs/Kisters/Bergs

We had a breakfast and gift exchange with Gandma and Grandpa Berg.

Jack really loves trains right now, and all he wanted for Chirstmas was a railroad crossing sign, so here it is. He carries around almost everywhere he goes.

Christmas cookies and gift exchange with the Kistlers.

Gemma got a rosary made by Anna, and her first cell phone from Catherine.

We had the Tim and Robin Bergs over for dinner and a gift exchange the night before we left for Philly.

That same night, we exchanged a few gifts to each other. The boys gave Gemma the dress up jewelry and ice cream cones. WE do this in MN becuase it is way too hard to bring a lot to Philly.

We got a new camara!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We had a beautiful Christmas with the Bergs in MN, and the Pierce, Heil, and Brown families out East. I will be posting some more pictures soon, but here are just a few taken by my amazing husband who surprised me with a new Nikon camara for Christmas! It had always been a little dream of mine to own a nice camara, and our previous camara has been broken since September. We are both having a lot of fun with it, and actually Tom is having more fun with it than me. He had been taking some gorgeous pictures. The first 6 pictures are in our home, and the last 4 are from our trip. I love you Tom...thanks for the beautiful camara.
