We had a white Christmas full of Skylanders and horse equipment much to the children's delight.  Matt's favorite gift was his socks which Grandpa Bud filled with cash. :)  Although the rest of us loved our new socks too.  Sydney loved her new handmedown IPhone.  Andrew got his Skylanders Swap Force and my favorite was my new western saddle.  I think Rain will like it too.  

Thanksgiving 2013

The holiday season has now come and gone and I am just getting around to updating the blog.  I used to be so good about this.  Posting something about every family event or milestone.  I guess as the kids have gotten older and our schedules have gotten busier and busier the blog has taken a backseat.  So, like many I maybe making a New Years resolution that will soon be broken but today I vow to become better at updating my blog!! :)

As for the the holiday season of 2013...... for Thanksgiving we took a road trip to big apple to visit Sera & Martin.  We hit many "touristy" spots, Macy's, Dylans Candy Bar, American Girl, and FAO Schwarz. We event spotted the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on our way to Rockefeller Center to go skating.

However, it seemed our trip mainly revolved around the food. Yumm!!!  Mexican, Chinese, Italian and lets not forget the Danish!!!  Sydney discovered her love for Starbucks Peppermint Hot Chocolate.  She also waited 2 hours to the decadent hot chocolate at Max Brenners.
