January Recap

I may be outgrowing this blog :) As soon as I have pictures for a new blog, we are off and running to the next event. What an exciting, exhilarating, and slightly busy time, ha! God has given us so many wonderful opportunities, and we could not be more blessed by this busy season of our family's life.
Hadley finished her basketball season, not without our first dose of politics, but many lessons were learned. She was the fastest and happiest kid on the court every single game, and we could not have been more proud!
We spent many weekend mornings snowshoeing & sledding at the land. Such a peaceful place for our family.

We got Paige & Luke out there one Sunday too!
We had the most glorious snowfall in January too. The kind that hung from the trees like frosting . It was spectacular! Like God had painted it all.

The month ended with Catholic Schools week and fun dress up days. I think Dad was smiling from heaven the day Hadley wore his fox hat to school!

The week came to it's celebratory end with the school's first ever spelling bee. The Anderson sisters took 1st & 2nd!! Hadley was a very gracious runner-up to her little sister who out-spelled the whole school as a 3rd grader (spelling words like dimension & heredity). What a fun start to the new year!

Christmas Program

Hadley & Piper stretched out the holidays for us; with their Christmas concert in the new year! It was a beautiful night, and we were so blessed to have Grandma & Paige join us for the evening.

Piper got to hold the pinata,

And Hadley got to sing a little solo! It was a beautiful night!

5 Snowshoers

Much to Bryndel's delight, she got her very own pair of snowshoes for Christmas. And after several days of below zero temps, today was finally warm enough to try them out!
She LOVED it!!

We found some time to sled by Grandpa's deer stand too.

It was a great winter day together.

Christmas at Home

While it was very chilly outside, we spent a warm and cheery Christmas right at home. 

We also got Grandma on Christmas day!! We shared hugs, laughter, Grandpa stories, and love. It was a very merry Christmas.
