Christmas Eve – Let The Craziness Begin

We decided to switch things up this year and have most of our nominal Christmas Day activities on Christmas Eve. We started with the last basket present, then a big breakfast, and moved on to games and cookie making. After an early dinner, we got to the presents! Before we knew it, it was time…

Santa – That Scary Guy

Abram Is 9

Alex spent last night in Milwaukee with his besties. They were getting ready for Abram’s big 9th birthday party today! Teague and I headed up right after lunch.
