Happy birthday Blake!

We had another great weekend! It was nice and restful after a week full of Christmas fun! We spent time as a family, did some cleaning, hung out with our coach, went to Scott and Lauren's wedding and most importantly celebrated Blake's 9th birthday!! Last night we all got together to eat and celebrate Blake turning 9!! I can't believe it has already been 9 years, time flies!! Anyways here are a few pics.

Happy birthday boy!!

Chirstmas Morning: Part three

 I will start with the end picture of Christmas morning...opening presents and playing sure do wear you out!!

Christmas morning we were all up by 7am! Tucker actually woke up around 6:30am, so carl and I got up, got the cameras ready and got started on our coffee;) He had no idea what was going on so it was ok. Around 7 tripp woke up, so I went to his room to get him and told him santa had come and brought presents! All he needed to hear was the word presents and he was off and running! When he got into the living room and saw all the presents he just kind of stood there not really knowing where to start:) But once he woke up completely and got started it was paper, boxes and toys everywhere!! So much fun!! Tucker also got in on the present opening action, although he was more interested in trying to eat the paper;) I made a yummy breakfast casserole and some mimosas too. It was a wonderful morning!! Tripp's big present was his new powerwheels. We had it wrapped outside, so once all the presents were opened and breakfast was eaten, we went outside where he was so excited to find his new car! Needless to say he rode that thing around for quite a while:) I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

 tucker was so excited to find oso!

A Schindewolf Christmas: part two

On Christmas Eve, our celebrations continued with our annual Christmas eve breakfast at grammy and coach's then off to lunch with the entire schindewolf family. It was our first year without grammy, but we managed to have a good time. We know that's what she would have wanted. We miss her so much, especially this time of year. We had donuts and mimosas at coach's, opened presents and played outside! It was a great morning. Then we all got cleaned up and headed over to aunt janelle's house where we had a yummy lunch, including janelle's special home made dumplings, then the kids opened all their presents. Our boys sure are loved and spoiled by all the family! Thank you all so very much...we love you!! Enjoy the pictures:)
 ready to open presents!!
