Visiting Santa

This morning Buddy (our elf on the shelf. creative name, I know) surprised Ellie and Ev with doughnuts and a note telling them that Santa was in town and that they could go visit. It just so happens that Santa decided to visit the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, so things worked out great:)

Ellie and Ev were so excited!

Ron wasn't quite as big of a fan.

Ellie had to run back because she forgot to tell the big guy what she wants this year.

They had some fun crafts for the kids to do too.

Family Pictures 2013

Here are our family pictures from this year! We traveled down to Kirtland Ohio in October to have our pictures taken by the talented Kenna Shumway (you can find her blog here). Even though it was rainy and the kids had been in the car for 3 hours (starting at 6am)- we still had a great time!

Apple a Day

I love going to the apple orchard every year. We had a great time! (even though there were a surplus of bees there so we had to eat our cider doughnuts in the car...)
