it’s here alright

12 Jan

winter that is.

one day it is 60+ degrees out and the next it is FFFFRRREEEZZZZING!!!!  south dakota.  it’s not for sissys.  🙂

just for fun (and for those that have so diplomatically reminded me that it’s been A REALLY LONG TIME SINCE I’VE MADE A BLOG POST…’s some of what’s been going on around here!

one of the few decorations we managed to set up this year.  Favorite nativity set.  Majority of it was a gift from Kris years ago.  Thanks Kris!  again!

i made the picture of the tree BIG because i like it!  sadly, this was the last year for this tree.  I bet we lost more needles and branches than if we’d had a live tree and forgot to water it did.  it was time.  maybe even past time.  i bought this tree after Christmas one year for $20!  I KNOW!  a steal.  a steal that was not to be had this year.  I have replaced the tree.  Overpaid even at half price.  and it is prelit with white lights not the multi colored.  I love a color lit tree.  really i do.  i tried to wind my own lights on the tree but it just didn’t work.  dang.  oh well, i might be over it by next year!

and  we made lefse.  LOTS and LOTS of lefse.  like about 40 dozen lefses.  Do you know how many that is?!?!  you can figure it out i’m sure.  it’s ALOT.  really.

mom is so good she can make lefse hearts.  do you heart lefse?

and we had programs.  Sunday school and preschool.  aren’t they just adorable all tied up for the occasion?

and lastly, look who stopped by on his way back to the north pole!  ian and kaiden were all over him immediately.  jabbering away.  liam took his time but eventually wanted to get in the mix of things.


and that’s a wrap folks.  i’ve got more stuff but am out of time.  🙂

    I just love your blog, Kay. It makes “me” (unfortunately, I am allowed to only speak for “me”) feel as if I am sharing all of these wonderful memories with you and your family. And I am having the pleasure of watching the boys grow up … from babies (Liam), to little boys (Kaiden) to a quickly maturing young man! (Hi, Ian). Thank you for sharing all of these things with me. Happy, happy New Year.

    Wow, the boys are getting so big and they are so cute! There is a strong gene pool there for sure, they look so alike! Nice to see a post from you! Missed you!

    PIty about the frigidness. Summer is yet to arrive here – no complaints though.
