New Year's Eve

On New Year's Eve we spent the evening with the Maurer's and Rau's. We normally have an annual Maurer/Rau/Siemsglusz Christmas but our schedules were so crazy we decided to gather for a New Year's Eve party instead. We had big plans for a fireworks show but the weather didn't agree with our plans, no worries we made the best of it and had a pretty intense game of pictionary! The kids played well together and were pretty excited to ring in 2013!

Happy New Year!
A serious game of pictionary!
Bryce and Mommy celebrating the new year
Collin, Bryce and Addison had a late night and made it til midnight to ring in the new year

Our night was cut a little short because of this!
Since our new year started we have been dealing with how to control this. I have made several phone calls, doctors appointments, and we now have several medications to hopefully control it!

Christmas Morning

Christmas morning started a little quiet with Collin coming straight to our room not even noticing the loot that Santa had delivered! He eventually got up to go to the restroom and that's when his eye caught a glimpse of the tree and presents. He started screaming Santa came, Addison, Bryce come look, Santa brought us presents. Before you knew it, it was a house full of paper, toys, and three very excited little kids!
Santa did not disappoint Christmas morning and spoiled the kids with lots of presents under the tree! 

Addison asked Santa for a necklace, a heart and a bracelet and Christmas morning she was happy to open her heart necklace and bracelet. 
Bryce asked Santa for a guitar and Santa delivered just that. He has put on several concerts ever since.
Collin asked Santa for an Aggie Football helmet and Santa brought the helmet and the entire football uniform!
He was one very happy little boy!
He has rarely taken the uniform off since Christmas morning, he even sleeps in it. Thankfully we have kept him from wearing it to school or out in public!
Collin opening another present!
Bryce excited about another present!
Addison was really excited about her new baby doll and baby stroller!

Christmas Day

Christmas day was a busy day full of family, presents and food but we wouldn't have it any other way! After an exciting morning at our house we went to Grandpa Siemsglusz's for lunch, back home for a quick nap, then the Wilde family gathered at our house for more fun that evening.

Christmas travels

As soon as we got out of school for Christmas break we hit the road to visit family. It was a long trip in a short few days but it was great to see family.

Professional Santa Picture

If I still have any followers still out there they've probably given up on me. Over Christmas break I cleaned out closets and I went crazy organizing my house but I just couldn't get the motivation to blog! It has become a little difficult to use because of several changes to blogger so I'll blame it on that. I'm going to attempt to figure it out so bare with me and if any other bloggers have advice on uploading photos please share your secrets! In the mean time here is a photo from the professional that I promised a long time ago. Stay tuned for more pictures of Christmas and New Year's if I can figure this blog thing out :)
