Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Well, I guess I took a little break from the blog, and boy have we had a fun holiday season!

As I took a look at the last post I published, it marked the start of our holiday celebrations. I will do my best to sum up the past few weeks in a few short paragraphs.

We had our Christmas at home before heading anywhere.  We got Delainey a mini couch, and she loves it! These are the daytime activities....

...and these are the night time activities.

In a few short days we managed to spend time with both sides of our families.  We first stopped at Dad and Nita's for a fun-filled night of cousins playing, Santa visiting, some new tasty cocktails, and some much needed catching up! We even got to enjoy some of Grandma Gale's homemade lefsa.....it doesn't get any better than that! 
Not so sure of Santa Claus

This year she sure knows how to tear them open!

We woke up Christmas Eve, said our good-byes, and were off to Rosholt for some more Christmas cheer! The Falken cousins had a great time playing and sharing each others new toys!  The adults also had a great
time catching up on the latest and greatest in each others lives.

We enjoyed a long weekend tucked inside during the New Year's blizzard! We closed another year feeling so blessed with everything and everyone in our lives.  We begin 2011 with open hearts and can't wait to see what life has in store for us!  Happy New Year to you!


  1. Delainey's Christmas dress was gorgeous! Um, and is that really Bryce looking all suave in the shirt and tie? What a cutie!

  2. Thank you Sarah! Little girls look beautiful in velvet! Yes, that is really Bryce putting the vibe out at 5 years old! :)
