We tried oatmeal! They loved it! Can't you tell?
We got our family pictures done!
The babies got their first introduction to Santa, and they did a pretty good job. No crying, screaming, trying to wriggle away etc. They weren't thrilled, but hey, they'll figure it out soon enough. For now, it's just another person mom and dad are trying to pawn them off on. :)
Brax has learned to blow strawberries! He and Daddy were swapping spit - that is, taking turns blowing strawberries at each other. So cute!
As I was creating the Christmas card, Elias told me he did not want me on the Christmas card. Say what?!
We all went to an IU game with Grandpa Jim! I think Elias likes the concession stand as much as the actual game. We played Notre Dame (and won!) on December 17, 2011.
So, months after the actual song came out, we found an IU song, "This is Indiana," and have now become obsessed with it. Elias knows the words and sings it randomly all the time. This is Ollie and Elias singing the song on New Year's Eve. This is also the same night that IU beat Ohio State. Yes that's right, IU beat Kentucky, a number one seed, and then Ohio State, a number two seed, in the same season. We're back!
New Year's Eve! Ben and family came over to watch the IU game with us but left before the new year. Surprisingly, Elias and Brax were both awake, but I didn't have the heart to wake Brant up. This year has been so great. We have a beautiful new house, added to our family, spent lots of time with friends and family, work at good jobs...I'm not sure it can get any better, but I'm so excited to start the new year and see what adventures we can find ourselves in! Happy new year!
