Holiday Wrap Up the end!

Christmas eve, I hardly took any pictures but it was finally a very relaxing day. The kids were so excited. Especially to open their cousin gift at Grandma's and jammies at home.
Jammies modeling time, ben is in his normal position on his chair.
The girls are obsessed with the shaka sign and do it all the time!
You can't read the sign very well but it says, David's spot saved for Santa. He marked his territory this morning.

Ben did not want to wake up. The other kids were up at 5 but we made them wait until 6 and dragged him out of bed.

This is what Ben loves to do with his train table most. IT is the perfect jumping spot.

Holiday Wrap part 2

The last week of school was so busy. We started off with grandma coming over to make cookie trees with her grandkids one afternoon. She came supplies in hand ringing jingle bells & wearing her santa hat.
Here is ben in one of the 3 outfits he will wear without tantrums. He is either 1/2 naked or wearing pajamas or wearing his nemo shirt & shorts he got in Hawaii. Lovely
My sisters, mom & I went out to visit a mansion covered in lights. We got 3 d glasses that made all the lights turn into either stars, snowman or santas. The santas were a little creepy.
Bella's class party, she loves her kindergarten class

Especially since Trent her cousin is in her class
Savannah's class did a Native American potluck. I guess we don't celebrate holidays with this teacher, it kind of bugs me but I went anyway. And Savannah wore a santa hat!
David's 5th grade did Christmas in Colonial Williamsburg which was fun because we visited Williamsburg at Christmas time when we lived in VA. David dressed up as a German immigrant to Williamsburg.

Holiday Wrap Up part 1

I can't believe the holidays have come and gone without a single post from me. I guess between the business of the season and being sick I just couldn't fit one more thing in. But it was a fun time, we managed to fit in a trip to grandma Kellers for Thanksgiving, school concerts, parties and games, girls night out, caroling. A funeral for Uncle Steve and of course Christmas. Here are a few pictures of the fun.
The 3 little monkeys, they are always running & screaming when they are together. Tristyn, Melissa & Bella, and of course Skylar supervising the chaos.
David wanted a drumstick so bad.

We got family pictures taken with the whole Keller family which we hadn't done since Bella was 1 month old.

We added a new member to our family, the much beloved Kevin.

David played in his first band concert

We visited Santa at the PUD christmas party (that is my dad's work) with all the cousins. Dave & David went on a scout campout instead but we still had a good time. Until Ben had to sit on Santa's lap, he did not like that at all.

Our tree looks crooked but it is not, just the very top branch is crooked and too flimsy for the star. I was going to trim it down but I just got too tired.
Bella is waiting for her handsome prince to come give her a kiss. Someone come and kiss me she says.

Sorry for my blogging silence...

But I've been pretty sick and pretty tired
sleeping on the couch while my littles bustle around me,
hovering over the toilet wishing I could die

But in the end it will be worth it....

Keller baby #5 is due in July!!

And they do turn out pretty cute so stay tuned!
