We’ve had a BUSY Christmas break so far….. And we’re not done yet! We’ve spent the bulk of our time in Iowa, driving back and forth to different places. I’d be lying if I said we won’t be glad to make it back home, but we’ve enjoyed spending time with everyone while here!
Here are pictures from our adventures!
Christmas Eve…… After Santa stopped at our house!
The kids looked confused as they walked into the living room Christmas Day 🙂
MN Wild socks!
Time for stockings!
Santa even brought Mommy fun things!! Personalized notecards, an IPhone case, and a necklace of the state of Iowa…
Madiana LOVED her new chopsticks!
Brecken was excited that Santa brought him the Batman Cave and Wonder Woman jet!
Reading our note from O’Kottie the elf…… We won’t see him again until next year!
Madiana spent much of Christmas morning playing with her many new dolls!!
NEXT STOP: WALKER FAMILY CHRISTMAS, NEVADA IOWA
New pillowcases from Grandma!!
Hot chocolate after our sledding fun!
NEXT STOP: GOTT FAMILY CHRISTMAS, OLLIE IOWA
We have tried to create some new traditions and memories, to help us survive the holidays without Mom. This year, we held our first ever Gott Family Ugly Sweater contest! We had fun planning and preparing for the day and the guys and their shaving experiments kept us in constant wonder if what we would see next!! Aren’t we beautiful??
Papa and the grandkids
More ugly sweater fun!
Time for presents!
I am POSITIVE Mom would have never allowed this welcome mat, but Dad sure was happy about it!
A big thanks to Dad (and Eric) for organizing the most amazing gift…. A necklace full of writings from MOM! This is a very special gift that I will always treasure!!
Some late night sibling loving as we tried to settle them for a movie!
Madiana and her doggies 🙂
NEXT STOP: Back to Nevada, Iowa to spend the night with Grandma & Grandpa Walker and then NYE with the Fulkersons. Stay tuned!!!
