Where do we begin (Part 1)

Wow, it has been awhile since I have updated the blog.  Each year I make books out of the blogs, this years book might be a thin volume!  I'll try to make up for it with a couple longer posts.  We definitely have been busy enough to fill a few chapters.  

Harrison continues to love EVERYTHING.  He has been have a particularly good time with boy scouts.  A fun mock camp out kick off the spring.

They also went to "Base Camp"

It has been a great first grade year.  Ms. Elsen's class did a play of Rumplestinskin.  Harrison was one of the King's Guards.

One of the highlights of the year at Glen Lake Elementary is the Spring Carnival.  It was a beautiful evening for this year's event.  It is really amazing because it takes over 100 volunteers to make this event a success and it was!  Ms. Elsen was first up in the dunk tank!

 H got her in!  (Hopefully it doesn't impact his grades!)

Summer is trying to get here!  The boat is in the water!
We had a surprise 90 degree day in early May so enjoyed the evening on the boat!
 Harrison served as catcher on opening day for baseball.

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.
