Merry Christmas to all!

Another amazing Christmas has come and gone.  Hard to believe.  So thankful for our family and was truly magical! The kids are at the perfect ages to appreciate the season!

Can't kick off Christmas without a visit to Santa!
 Harrison's request for $100,000 was turned down but Santa promised to see what he could do in regards to Legos and a Kindle Fire.
 Miss Q has traditionally been a bit reluctant with Santa but this year "wrote" her list and "read" it to him. It included a Frozen Jewelry Box, Barbie house, and American Girl stuff.

 All smiles at the Lichty Christmas Eve extravaganza!

 Finally the big morning!!!Harrison awoke promptly at 7:00!

 Santa did not disappoint!
 Quinn had a more leisurely morning...gracing us with her presence around 9:00.

 Christmas dinner with the Olmem-Westerbergs!

"Build your own nativity" service at Church.  Q brought her own costume...H was a shepherd.

Happy 4th Birthday Quinn!

Hard to believe that this little spitfire is 4 years old today!  She loved every minute of it!  It was fun to have family and neighbors shake off their sugar hangovers and come celebrate a pretty special girl!

 Quinn was a very spoiled birthday girls.  A special bear from Auntie Suzanne named Grace and an American Girl doll from Mom and Dad named Grace.  (Plus fun stuff to go with her from Uncles and Grandparents.)

Such a fun day celebrating an amazing four year!  Love her to the moon and back!

Fall Catch up!

We've had some computer issues so I am a bit delayed on posting anything new.  Here is a quick catch up!

School is off to a great start.  H is loving Ms. Elsen and all the happenings at Glen Lake Elementary!

Over MEA weekend we headed to Chicago.  We had great weather and got to take in some sights but more importantly spend some really fun time with one of my college friends and her family.

The Lichty and Kelly Kids became fast friends.  
TheWillis Tower was pretty cool.  Great view!

H and Solomon are in cub scouts together but both of their parents missed the sign up for the fall nature hike so Matt took the two of them on a hike around Minnehaha Falls!

Practicing his mad football skills!
 Getting ready for Halloween!

Fun trip to the pumpkin patch with Teddy Smith who was visiting from Houston!

 Wrapping up a fantastic soccer season!  The boys had mixed results on the field but are a great group off the field!

 Halloween!  Not sure when it became a multi day event but we were all in!  H debated between a ninja and Abraham Lincoln...ultimately the sword with the Ninja won out.  Q was a unicorn one day (although she didn't like the hood and a cow girl the next...mostly because she is obsessed with her boots!)

Back to school!

Off to 1st grade!  Luckily H loves school and was excited to get back to it!

 He was especially excited to ride the bus this year!
 My work had an outing the next Saint Paul Saints Ball Park.  H and I had a date night.  He was actually into the game more than I was!
 We had the PERFECT last weekend of summer.  A Labor Day weekend offering 80+ degree weather allowed us to be out the lake for most of it.  Saturday night we did a big shrimp boil on Elliott's lawn next to the lake.
