Sweet Siblings

Snuggling on the couch, pointing to our chins, watching a show with some mermaids... you know, just a typical day.

Mid January Weekend

Friday evening nature walk.

Saturday brought Carver's camping themed birthday party. 
Love these two little girls.

Ansley chose to wear almost every piece of jewelry she owns. 

Logan and his buddies (Roan and Ryland).

The New Year

Our relaxing new year's eve at home. The little girl was finally on the mend from her winter break virus.

It's a good thing we kept the evening low because the kids were up bright and early the next morning.

Sitting out back watching the first sun rise of 2013.

Logan was (is) obsessed with the newly refilled sand box.

Who needs their sandwich cut into tiny pieces? Not this big boy :)

End of December

A Saturday morning visit to the horse farm

Seeing the lights at the duck pond

Twinkle decided the kids should decorate their gingerbread houses

Jon said Logan's looked like the uni bomber's shack


Animal Kingdom with the Allens

This video is pretty uneventful, but marks that Logan FINALLY started walking Christmas Eve.

Early December

Cold weather twins

"Stinky feet" is Logan's favorite game.

Logan's first experience with the Christmas tree

Ansley's class Christmas pageant

Ansley LOVED the elf this year. She named her Twinkle. 

I tried to trick myself into thinking we had fireplace on a few cold and gloomy days.

And a little treat for everyone...
