January's end

I'm not kidding. This is how her hair looked when she woke up in the morning. Serious fuzzhead!

I took the girls out in the snow.  It started out well for Evelyn but slowly went downhill.

Evelyn became happier when she helped herself to a giant cookie.  Who wouldn't?

Christmas part II

Christmas part 2:

Ok, so maybe I should have posted this in 'part 1.'  These are the kids playing in the first snow of the season.  They had so much fun!

More fun in the snow

New Year's Eve with the kids.  We watched a few countdowns thanks to Netflix.  And we watched the ball drop from last year thanks to Youtube.  We had sparkling grape juice (aka 'kid wine') and the kids were in bed by eight.  I think Ryan and I were in bed by nine.  Oh the joys of having young kids!

Christmas part I

It's been a long time since I made a new post.  So long in fact that I must divide it into two posts but they both include lots of Christmas pictures :)  We had a great Christmas.  It's the only time of year that the whole Huizinga side gets together.  No one got sick, we had snow to go sledding, and the kids got along so great!
Sledding is fun with or without a sled

These next few pictures are courtesy of my brother Matthew.  Evelyn is almost 11 months here.
