A Christmas Start

Becca arrived on Saturday night and the fun began. Matt & kids came on Sunday followed by Sarah & Family on Sunday night. So the fun has begun. For dessert we had Ice Cream Pops, can you tell they liked them?

We trained the boys to go get Grandpa's morning paper, they didn't seem to notice the cold.
And of course for church we had our pictures taken with Ruthie Two. More photos will follow as I have a few minutes to blog.

Entertaining Kids in the Car

Last week we took a trip to visit Matt's family and to watch the Trans Siberian Music Lights at the Northfield Mall. On the way home Rocket & Roxanne were getting very bored. I kept them occupied by taking their pictures . This is something we couldn't have done with a regular camera, but with a digital camera we can take as many pictures as we want and if they don't turn out, just delete them.
It really kept them occupied for quite a while, as they would come up with a pose, I would snap the picture and then they would look at the picture and laugh. So if you are stuck in a car with active children, play with your camera.
