Enjoying our favorite time of year!!

Winter is the favorite time of year at our house. We love that we get to spend more time with Doug and more time together as a family. We had a great Christmas. It seemed to last for days, by the time we did stuff with both sides of the family. However, when it came time to take down the tree, Luke started crying and told me that he hadn't gotten a 'great big Lightning McQueen' yet. Good thing his birthday isn't too far away. I love this picture, but it is very deceptive. It makes it look like Abby didn't like Santa when really she sat there for quite awhile, while I tried to get Luke to sit on Santa's lap with her. He was throwing a fit and she got tired of it and that is when I took this picture.
She had a great birthday, but had just eaten and so she wasn't as in to her cake as I had hoped.

After Christmas we went bowling with my family. They had these great ramps that made it so easy for kids to bowl. He called it 'rolling balls'. Between that and the bumper pads Luke had a higher score than me.

For Christmas I bought Doug Jazz tickets to a couple of games. My mom kept the kids and we got to go to Utah and play for a couple of days. It was a great break.

And now we are back to playing in the snow and enjoying the winter. If only winter did not come with so many germs and sicknesses.

Looks like you all are having so much fun. To bad my husband has the summers off, while everyone else has winters off. We miss all the fun! Your kids are so cute. I can't believe how big they are getting, especially Abby. It makes me sad that they grow so fast:(
