Christmas is here!

We went to Rochester MN to celebrate Christmas with Aaron's family. Sarah and Jared, and Kaci came also. 
Isabel helped Grandpa deliver Christmas goodies to the neighbors. 
Making the famous Donuts for Christmas Eve

Cade liked having a boy cousin around

The classic pajama picture on Christmas Eve. They had a blast.

Christmas Day 2013
Isabel was so excited that she got her Barbi house that she wanted from Santa
Cade just wanted his papa and was a little confused about the morning. He just wanted to eat more breakfast.

I surprised Aaron with the watch he has been talking about for months.

Isabel got the bow and arrow from the movie Brave
They are rocking out with Isabel's new microphone and guitar set. The Oesterle Band.
Grandma O got the kids Snugglies for Christmas.

Cade loves to be read to. This is one of his books he got from Christmas.

December 2013

Cade playing the piano with me
This is what happens when you use hot water on a white bum.
Skittles was mischevious, and sweet this year. He brought us a ginger bread house to decorate one morning.
Aaron 2 hours of sleep per day for a week, and still had the energy to spend time with Isabel.
Isabel wanted to bring a book to read to Santa. Isabel asked for a Barbie House, and a Microphone and Guitar. 
Cade was not happy about sitting on Santa's lap. He rarely cries, but he did with Santa.

We had temperatures around -4 and more!

Isabel brought home the classroom teddy bear from preschool class. Every child takes it home for one night.  It reminded me of the class in hihgschool, that you take care of a baby, and you have to feed it, and take care of it. 
First time sledding   Cade 15 months
Isabel had a blast, we had to bribe her with hot chocolate at home to get her to leave. Cade did really well.  I was expected him to be done and cry in like 15 minutes as did Isabel at his age.  Surprising he loved it, and couldn't get enough of the snow and sledding.

Daphne came back from Idaho to visit her Grandma, so we were able to steal a couple of hours.  They had a blast.
