Through the Eyes of a Three Year Old

Abigail received a digital camera for Christmas and it is interesting to see what she sees as picture-worthy and to view the world from her angle.

Bottoms Up!

 I just had to capture this, when we checked on Elijah one night and found him in the fetal position with his butt sticking up in the air!

Our Holiday Best

 We had to snap a photo since we were all dressed and feeling great. Morning sickness is gone, but little did we know that the flu would visit the kids repeatedly over the coming holidays. Ugh.

O Christmas Tree

 Here is our Christmas Card for this year. Merry Christmas!
 Instead of going to cut our own this year we actually broke tradition since we were invited to a Christmas Tree event at Teusinks Farm and would receive a free tree as well. 
 It wasn't as exciting picking out our tree just lying there on the ground versus hunting it down at the farm but we also didn't have to worry about the saw snapping into two pieces like last year!
 We went on a hayride and it was bitterly cold; plus Abbi was terrified. 
 But they both warmed up (and perked up) once they got their donuts and hot cocoa!
 First year for the Vibe to bring home the tree (we are so sentimental, aren't we)

Christmas Parade

 We bundled up and went to the Zeeland Christmas Parade.
 Abigail loved collecting all the candy they tossed to us and Elijah enjoyed watching the trucks and Christmas lights.

An Early Reader

 Elijah likes to sit and look at books in his room now.
 For a 12 month old with a short attention span he actually sits and "reads" for quite awhile if left alone and undistracted.

Daddy Daughter Night

It was a western themed evening for the Daddy Daughter Night at Abigail's school (where I work) so we all dressed up to have some fun!

 A crane was lifting all the trusses in place on a new house down the street and Abbi pulled the Cozy Coupe over to help her climb up and get a better look.

Halloween 2013

 It was cold and rainy for Halloween (isn't it always that way?!)
 Abigail saw these cozy costumes in her closet so she wanted to wear them and since the weather was so chilly we obliged. 
 So we had a Winnie the Pooh
 and a Giraffe (Jeffrey from ToysRUs maybe?)
 Since Abigail walks so slow, we would have been drenched by the time she walked the entire ONE kilometer loop around my neighborhood (haha) at her speed so we put them each in an umbrella stroller. 
 These were originally the costumes they were going to wear: a sailor
 It's a real wool one from when her great grandpa was in the navy and brought it home her Abigail's grandpa to wear! The best part: it comes with a whistle! :)

 We also have a pilot:

 Even their cousin Micah got in on the Armed Service "theme"!
