Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I can't believe the holidays are already over.  As always, they went by fast, but we had a lot of fun with both sides of the family.

My family was here for Christmas.  The kids were excited to have them here on Christmas morning!  Matt left the Sunday after Christmas and Mom and Dad left on Monday.  Monday was also the day of our ice storm.  We lost power at 10:15am and didn't get it back until the middle of the night.  The kids thought it was a lot of fun.  I had a ton of laundry to do so I didn't think it was nearly as fun.  And it got cold in the house!  To make the day even more exciting, we managed to lock ourselves out of the house during the power outage.  A few hours and $85 later, we were back in the house.

We took Kayley to see Star Wars when my family
was here.  During our power outage, we went to
Home Depot and she saw these three and thought
Matt would like to see a picture of her with them!

We left for Omaha Tuesday morning to spend New Year's with Andy's family.  The kids were so excited to see their cousins!  We had a great time and lots of late nights. Ryan was even up late every night.  It will be fun getting him back on a normal bedtime routine.

Still counting down

Happy New Year!

We drove home yesterday and today has been our only day of rest this break.  Back to work and school we go!
