Happy New years Eve 2012

The Schwehrs threw a great New Years Eve party- full of good food, dancing, games and friends.

 We celebrated on Eastern Time for the kids with sparkling apple cider! 

 Cameron even hooked up the basement with a disco ball! 
 We all on the other hand, made it to midnight:) 

 So did these three girlies! 
 Thank you Schwehrs for a FUN par-tay! 

Hotel Fun

 We went back to the Holiday inn Express in Longmont, CO the Friday after Christmas to spend the night and swim. They have the best pool anywhere around so we make the hour trip to relax and swim! 
I added up all the swimming we did and we spent around 5 hours total in the pool:) 
Our kids LOVE swimming! 

 This picture cracks me up! Elijah lost his shorts:) 

We got to eat out at Outback that night for dinner (thank you, Uncle Kenny, for the gift card!) 
 All 4 kids slept sideways in one bed- although of course, Elijah ended up in our bed. 
We had popcorn and watched James and the Giant Peach before bed.
 Saturday morning, during breakfast, Ella lost her first tooth! 
What an exciting trip! 
Here is some video fun of the HUGE slide- two loops of it go outside the hotel. 
It was like 5 degrees that night/morning and the whole pool are was filled with steam. It was cool. 
Ella got up the nerve to do it by herself and then you couldn't stop her. 
We will definitely go back next winter.

Elijah's Preschool Christmas program and Sola Kids Program

 Elijah did a great job singing many cute Christmas songs at his preschool Christmas program. 
Juliana came along to hear her friend. 

The kids also sang and recited verses for our Kids program at Sola Church.
They did a great job. We had all the older kids over for a Christmas party/practice before the big day. We decorated cookies, practiced and had a gift exchange. It was fun!
