Christmas Fun

~Cooley Christmas~
 Linda's table had  been set and ready to go.
~
 New Lego kits!  We only let them open one (they chose the Hobbit house) and made them wait until returning home (a whole week later!!) to open the others.  First thing they did?  Tore into those kits. ;o)
~
 Owen got a new bike as the one we had cobbled together for him from Barbie and Spiderman bike parts had bit the dust.  This summer he actually showed us he could ride without training wheels for little bits, but it was too scary for him and he constantly wanted us running right along side him.  A new bike with working training wheels will solve that problem until he is more confident.

 Sweet pic of the girlies and their daddy.
~
 A Cooley tower--new tradition? ;o)
~
 Meet Carlos the snake. Josh won him out of the "claw machine" at Val's and it is Owen's new best friend.  Carlos rode bikes, took naps, ate cheerios, and spoke to us in this high squeaky voice--definitely adding some levity and laughter to everyone's week.

~Hansmeyer Christmas~
 Lynsi got my kids some story cubes, which are basically a set of dice with pictures and you "roll a story." They were a hit and the kids delight themselves with what they come up with.
~
 Isabella and Papa Roy steadying themselves on a slippery stream.
~
 The big girl cousins.
~
 They had some fun coming up with all different configurations.
~
And my two bigger boys--they found a canoe oar that they were using to first try to chop holes in the ice, and second as a hockey stick.
