Jacob's New Car. 1/1/17

Grandma Linda and Jon came to visit and the kids are always so excited to see them.  They arrived at 1:00am New Years Day.  As usual Mark and I kept them up talking until 4:00am.  They brought some Christmas presents for all of us to open.  They are always so thoughtful about their gifts and it is truly appreciated.  After we were all done, Jon said, "there is one more gift.". Jacob proceeded to open the gift.  It was a title to a 2004 Jeep Cherokee.  He was so so excited!!!  He gave them both hugs and we went out to check out the new ride.  What a generous and amazing gift.  That night we took it for a little test drive and he did pretty good. 

New Year's Dinner. 1/1/17

We had a yummy dinner at Applebee's with Grandma Linda and Jon.  Playdough is the key to keeping the Bean busy while we waited for the food.  We made a family of snails.  They also had these fun little quiz games at the table.  Good Times!

Happy New Year 1/1/17

New Years Eve was an adventure this year.  Mark, me and Ireland woke up in Idaho and worked hard to finish the improvements on Michelle's house. (Another post) Todd and Anna were watching Jacob, Mason and Sabine.  We picked them up at 8:00pm, we dropped off  the kids off at various parties and I started to clean up our house up in prep for our next guests (Grandma Linda and Jon). Just before Midnight I realized I needed a few groceries so I decided to go get them on my way to pick up the kids from their parties.  As I got to the checkout line I heard a few people in the store doing the countdown...yes, I was in line at Walmart for the New Year!  Happy 2017!
