Christmas Break

Christmas Morning!

 We were thrilled to have two full weeks to spend in the Sunshine State for our Christmas break.  The kids had a wonderful time with Grandma Suzie, Uncle Mike, Aunt Michelle, and their precious foster baby!

Nothing says "Merry Christmas" like a big ol' hug (that may possibly have turned into a wrestling match...)
The kids had quite the task of unwrapping their mountain of presents!  It's possible they might be a tad bit spoiled by Grandma and Uncle and Auntie!

Whoa - we have to unwrap all of these gifts???  We'd better get to work!

Hugs for her new baby doll.
Looking over Grandma's new calendar!   

Ready for Christmas Dinner!
Pie with Grandma makes for a Happy Lil' Bryce!

Walks and Parks 

Walks around the neighborhood and trips to local parks and playgrounds were great ways to keep the kids entertained....and to tire them out!

Warning!  Alligators
One of my goals for 2013 is to improve my photography skillz!


 My little girl charged across this bridge and while it terrified me - she did it with confidence and a smile.  I love her courageous little self that isn't afraid to try new things!  Was very thankful for all the great parks we found in Florida!

Feeding the ducks.....if you bring bread, they will come!

Playing the "WEE" game - Brianne loved being swung in the air! :)

We made a trek to an Arts and Crafts festival at Delray Beach.  Grandma Suzie treated the kids to ice cream. 
Love the boy eating his ice cream cone with a spoon....and sister trying to steal a bite.


We checked out the circus - and I was pleasantly surprised by how much the kids enjoyed it.  They sat and watched all of the acts intently for the entire show!  Bryce's favorite part seemed to be the crazy motorcycle guys that rode around in a giant metal dome......and I think Brianne was most impressed with the trampoline favorite part was the elephants skipping. :)

 Happy New Year!

We kicked off 2013 by spending three days at the beach.  The weather was fantastic and we enjoyed sand covered kiddos and lounging by the swimming pool. 

Waking up and seeing the sunrise right from bed is a pretty sweet way to start the day!

Tired kiddos napping poolside.  Note to anyone vacationing with little kids - a pack-and-play makes lounging by the pool way more enjoyable!  

 We had an amazing time in Florida - quality time with family, catching up with friends, and tons of time to enjoy the kiddos.  But after two weeks away - it was GREAT to get home!

The kids were pretty excited to get back home too!

Happy 2013 everyone!
