So, now that it’s February…

Ok, so I think this will be my last “catch up” post for a while. I think I mentioned a couple of posts ago that we spent Christmas and the New Year in North Dakota. Anyway, if I didn’t, then I am saying it now. We had a great time. But…before we left, we got to open gifts with Justin’s mom, step-dad, sister, brother, his girlfriend, and grandmother. Here are some pictures from our fun…

Grandma Marie got to spend Christmas in Texas this year

This picture is a perfect representation of who got all of the attention…

Allie recited and did some moves to “The Night Before Christmas” for all of us

Justin surprised me with this great jacket…we had already opened our gifts, but he saved this for me to open right before we went to North Dakota…just perfect…

Nana got Cailyn some great boots, a hat, and gloves to prepare her for the snowy weather

After we opened gifts on the night of the 21st, we got in the car and we headed to North Dakota. We got there on the 22nd. Justin’s brother, Preston, helped Justin drive there…that was nice. Cailyn had a tooth that was coming in (her 2nd bottom tooth) basically on the way to North Dakota, so she was pretty fussy, and she also got a pretty nasty cold with a bad cough. All of that added up to a pretty hard drive there…and, yes, it takes about 20 hours.

Here are some pictures from our time there…hopefully they can tell about our time better than my words would…

We spent a lot of time inside having fun because the snow was SO THICK…Cailyn enjoyed watching it all out the sliding glass door…

Cailyn loved the cats…they weren’t completey sure about her…this was the closest she got almost the entire time we were there…

This is all of us at the Christmas party with the entire family…Justin, me, Shannon, Luke, Cailyn, and Preston
These are our generation pictures…one with Grandpa Wally, and one with Grandma Pud
This was Cailyn’s stocking…we know…IT’S HUGE…and, yes, she is spoiled!
The best gift from Grandpa Luke and Grandma Shannon was her baby bouncer…
the mirror was her favorite part…
we goofed around a lot…uncle Preston was really great with Cailyn…she loved him
Us, aunt mary, and uncle jack…they hosted our family Christmas party, and they always take time to come and have dinner with us and visit when we are at Luke and Shannon’s…they really spoil us also…
Justin’s Aunt Mary spent time with Cailyn and babysat 2 nights for us so that we could go and watch the Fighting Sioux hockey games both Friday and Saturday…it was awesome!
Cailyn is sporting Justin’s new Sioux hat…she loved it…she loves her shoes, too…

So…we had a great time. There are a lot more pictures that we have, and you can check them out by clicking here. Thanks for putting up with our WAY LATE post.
