Winter Happenings

Go Vikings! It was fun hanging out with our dear friends. The Vikings lost but the company was great and the food was tasty. 

Kyle is doing some early morning fishing with Corey and Gramps. 

Supporting Team Vogel at the Chula Vista Taco Feed. Yummy!

Corey took the boys ice skating on the lake. Always fun slip sliding away. The hot chocolate in the lodge is tasty, too.

Our Christmas

Hmmm, wonder what Santa brought for everyone?

Connor and Olivia joined us along with Tim and Gramsie and Gramps. 

Silent Night, Holy Night...

Christmas with Corey's Family

We had a house full of Corey's family for Christmas dinner the weekend before Christmas. It was great to have the cousins together. 

Cooper is a great sous chef and did a super job keeping us on schedule. Or maybe I was the sous chef.

The cousins opened lots of presents. Lots.

Coop, Grace, Brydon, Cam, Kyle and Landon.

Oreos, Presents , & Paper Footballs, oh my...

Dipping Oreos AND eating them.

Coop can't wait to taste them.

Coop wrapped lots of presents before Christmas.

Going old school.

Ketchup, Catsup, or maybe just Catch Up...

Yikes, one week of company, Christmas celebrations and the stomach bug and the blog moves quickly to the bottom of the priority list. So, here I am back to try to fill in the last month of happenings. 

One snowstorm back in December made for some fun times outside with our friend, Cady.

Here is a boy who knows where his bread is buttered.

Cooper makes a cute snowman.

That was the last major snowfall we had and this week the landscape has turned brown. Shucks.

This is what Cam wanted to wear to school but he was afraid the other kids would pick on him. Big brother, Kyle, was very encouraging when he assured Cam that the other kids would most definitely call him a "dork". Needless to say, the jacket stayed in the van and he put it on after school.
