Gingerbread Houses!

Last Friday, Jayla went to her friend Sophia's house after school. Her mom sent me pictures of them decorating gingerbread houses ...


Three minutes after looking at the pictures of Jayla, Justin was out the door to go buy kits for the other two to do. :)

Messy ... especially when your daughter drops a bowl of candy on hardwood floor and it goes rolling everywhere! Ha! :)

Jayla - Basketball

Jayla continues to have fun playing basketball! I love watching both of our girls play, and it's so fun to watch them improve with each game they play!

This little one sure sits thought a lot of activities for his sister - he's quite the trooper!

Sinus Surgery

Jax had sinus surgery last Thursday.
I had to bribe him to put the scrubs on, and he was just sure that after I took one picture, he could take them off. 

Off he goes! Buddy, Castle and his two favorite blankets (notice he picked his Raiders blanket, not his Vikings blanket) went with him ...

Recovery was tough. It broke my heart to see him so uncomfortable. 

However, after about an hour and a half of recovery and naps, he was ready to go home!

By 1:30 that day, he was back to his normal self ... and was begging to run and play! Kids are amazing how fast they can recover! He never napped (other than at the hospital), and he didn't have any pain once we were home. His nose was pretty bloody all day though, and we decided to keep him home on Friday because of the bloody nose. Justin stayed home with him on Friday ... and I was lucky enough to have them bring me lunch on Friday. Jax was so excited to come to my classroom!

We are so thankful for a successful surgery and recovery!

Sport Court!

Our sport court is in! (minus the landscaping around it and the light being hooked up)
Unfortunatley, it was finished just hours before the first big snow fall. It looked more like an ice skating rink! (It actually can be flooded into an ice rink.)

We did get some warmer weather a couple of weeks ago, so we were able to play on it! The Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving were beautiful, so we spent a lot of time playing basketball, pickle-ball and volleyball!

Jayla was so excited to see the volleyball net! She didn't bother to change out of her pj's before heading out to play!

I think it's safe to say the kids are going to love this!

Basketball practice

Jordyn has basketball practice on Monday nights. Usually Justin takes both girls. Recently Jax decided he wanted to go too, which means I needed to also go. There are two other boys his age that are there, so the three of them play basketball for an hour!

Jordyn won both games of lightning the other night. :)

Forget basketball! Ha!

Decorating the trees at the farm!

After a little rest after the tree farm, we headed my parent's farm. We made a quick stop to see Oma first. 

The kids couldn't wait to get to the farm to play and decorate the tree!

They also got to go to the shop to decorate Grandpa's little tree.
