A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day.

Trees and Gingerbread

Enough said.

Going to school in the snow

Well, we ride the bus now and the girls have to walk to the end of our street to get to the bus. Here are the girls walking to the bus on the second day of the big storm. And playing in the snow.


Lucy is now 6 and Eira is now 2. Enjoy these photos. This is Lucy's birthday party that we had one week before her actual birthday which happened to be moving day.

On moving day, we surprised Lu with balloons and presents and then went out to eat.

We had a little family party for Eira. One with grandma on her birthday and then another one the day after since her actual birthday seemed to be a little much for her. Eira loves to wear either one of Lucy's dresses over her clothes or one of her sister's swimsuits. Here she is wearing one of Lucy's dresses.

Yup, here is a swimsuit. She has been wearing a swimsuit since, oh, August.


We had Thanksgiving at Mom Groberg's house with an interesting guest list consisting of my brother Jason and his cute family, my dad (who is here on a mission) and Geoff's siblings. These pics are of the girls helping Grandpa Giles with the Thanksgiving punch and other various Thanksgiving chores. Mom has the girls make these cute turkey decorations filled with M&Ms.

I had Amanda and Lucy each prepare a relish plate for Thanksgiving. Both artistic, both fun. Amanda's is on the left and Lucy's on the right.


So many people showed up to help us move, thank goodness. If you were one of those people, thank you so much. Too bad our moving truck showed up a half hour late and everyone ended up moving our stuff twice! From our house to the garage and then from the garage to the truck. You are all lifesavers.

This is a picture from our new kitchen. Yup, there are still boxes in places there shouldn't be boxes.

So much has happened

Okay, so now we are in our house and SOOOO much has happened in the past two and a half weeks. I'll try to spare you all of the pics but we've moved, Lucy and Eira had birthdays, Thanksgiving, decorating for the holidays and one of the biggest snow storms I've seen will be in the next few posts. Bare with me:)
