Happy New Year! We spent the holidays in SLC at my parents house. Bets, Steve, and Charlie came out for 10 days and what a fun 10 days it was! We had such a great time with the whole family together. Allie can never get enough of grandma and grandpa or her cousins. Cole and Charlie met for the very first time, and we did babysitting swaps with Betsy and Steve! Ry and I went on three dates while they were here, it was awesome. We missed my brothers who couldn't make it out this year, but the sisters still had a blast. Thanks mom and dad for letting us take over your house for so long! We have so much to be thankful for all of the time, but we feel especially blessed this year. We have two great kids. Allie is a sassy sweetheart, always willing to help and always making us laugh. And Cole definitely keeps us on our toes! He is quite the high maintenance little boy! He has only been part of our family for 6 weeks but we couldn't imagine life without him.While I was looking through my pictures I realized they are mostly all of the kids! So here are a few.

Here is Allie showcasing the plate of goodies she left for Santa on Christmas Eve

Allie with Cole and Charlie...These boys are totally spoiled by all of their cousins, they never get put down

Charlie is 4 months older than Cole but notice how there is not much difference in size. We have a fatty on our hands.
Um, perhaps the cutest picture EVER of Ryan and Cole

Sophie, Emma, Emma's friend Mary, and Allie

Charlie is such a charmer! And even though it kind of looks like it, I'm not nursing Cole in this picture.

Twinners, Charlie and Ryan
We can't forget Rosie and Nala
Allie started school again today, back to normal life! Before we know it school will be out for the summer. We hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

So many cute pics of all the kiddies!!! What total hams! I have to say though, the pic of Char & Ry Ry in their matching hats is priceless. We'll have to send that hat your way when Char outgrows it.
