What have we been up to ?

Oh, it's always busy around here. So busy that I have very little time to update the blog! Winter has passed and now we are into Spring. So why is there snow outside my window? Ah, the joys of Wisconsin weather. Never a dull moment, just like at our house :)

Basketball has come and gone for Bethany and Evan. They both had good seasons. Bowling has wound down as well. Grant has a couple more events before Nationals in Vegas, baby! Grant is excited to go, as is the whole fam! Cheerleading Spirit camps, messing with the dog, creating funky hairdo's with the vacuum, lifeguard certification classes is what has been filling up our days. Macie is becoming the cupcake queen around here. Evan told her she makes the best cupcakes! Poker nights, Just Dance competitions, skateboarding, biking and kickball are constantly going on around here.

Life is good!

I am long over due for an update. The holidays are so busy. I have a lot of pictures to share.

We had a wonderful Christmas and very happy New Year. Evan was even able to sneak his 14th birthday in between!

Enjoy the pictures!!

Thanksgiving fun....

I had to head back to work today after having off last week. It takes me a few days to prepare for the annual Waala Thanksgiving feast. We had 47 people at our house. We broke out the good chinet and had a great dinner that included two 20+ pound turkeys and two 9 pound hams, not to mention all the wonderful side dishes and desserts.

Black Friday shopping is a tradition with my sisters and mom. This year we actually did things a bit different. We headed out the door at 9:15 pm on Thanksgiving Day and shopped all night. I was home and in bed by 8:30am Friday morning. It was a loooooooong night, but we had a blast. My mom opted out of the all nighter but Lynn, Jenny and I had a blast. We are just crazy enough that we might do it again next year!

Desperate for snow.....

Grant and his buddies are just itching to be able to go snowboarding this year. We heard the ski hill started making snow this weekend. A bunch of kids were going to spend Saturday night watching a hockey game. When they got there, they bailed on the game and decided to fill a pick up truck with snow (the ice shavings from the zambonie) and haul it back to our house so they could snowboard.

The girls spent some time on Saturday making haunted houses. Auntie Lynn found a couple of kits on clearance after Halloween.

We are home & healing. Bethany came home yesterday. She is doing well, just moving a little slow....doing what we call her "granny walk". Sometimes she will break into her "granny run" which is pretty much the same speed :) Thanks to everyone for all of your prayers. They are very much appreciated.
