What are the days after Christmas for if not to enjoy all the presents received, and play with all of them, at least once. We made it back from Iowa on Sunday the 29th, and with all of us home until Thursday, we got a lot of playing time in.
|Ian learned how to play checkers and chess during break. He's too much of a thinker for me to play with him.|
|Annaliese played a lot of babies (this new one's name is Ori... which sounds very similar to her cousin's name) and loved dressing up as Rapunzel in her new skirt and shoes (hair was from her birthday).|
|We played some family games of UNO Attack. Way more fun than regular UNO.|
|The kids always love daring Darrin to get them, and now he has a new weapon to try out on them. Annaliese did lots of singing and playing with her new Disney Princess toys.|

We actually started the new year with some snow... and 1.5 inches. The past few days have been in the 20s and sunny, so it's practically gone. We were all out there shoveling, and the kids somehow even managed to go sledding in the backyard on the minimal amount we got.
