Goodbye, 2011! We had a whirlwind of a year-end. After returning from my parents' house the day after Christmas, we stuck around Waukee for two quick days at home. I hung out with the kids while Randy worked on the basement. We then went to Randy's parents' for a few days to celebrate Christmas with them. We celebrated so late because Randy's sister Amy's family was home from Idaho! It was great to see them for a few days, and Santa (or "Ho Ho," as he is known in our house) spoiled all four of us. We left late Saturday night and the kids slept in the car the whole way home. We were able to transition them into their rooms seamlessly! I love when that happens.
My parents came up to stay with the kids on NYE. It is so nice to have them stay with us! They know where everything is, and of course my kids absolutely adore them. We went out to eat with our good friends Jake and Stacy and then went out to their house afterwards. They are redoing another house and it will be gorgeous when it is done!
Randy and I are back to work and Quinn and Wes are back at day care. It is always hard to leave them after a break, but it is nice to be back in our routine. Randy will be out of town through Friday. He is in Moline on a business trip. Since I will be running a zone defense with my two little punkins, I probably won't post anything here this week. Stay tuned for pictures and updates soon, though!
