I'm So Glad when DADDY gets home

Jeff has been away from home, traveling A LOT lately interviewing for fellowships. The kids are always so excited when he gets home- they ALL want him to hold THEM. So he got home yesterday and the 3 kids where pulling on his leg saying "Up-E" - Ellie , "MEEEEE meee"- Caden, "Hold me too daddy"- Jocelyn
Luckily Jeff is so strong and can hold them all at the same time!!!!!!!
And Everyone is happy! ( for a few minutes)
WE Love our Daddy

For those of you who don't know - it has been crazy cold here in Minnesota. It has been so cold they have canceled the schools and activity the last two days. It has reached temperatures of about -50 with the windchill. And has not risen above 0 degrees since Tuesday! It been the coldest it has ever been in the last 5-10 years.
Anyway we have been having fun indoors- playing puzzles, jumping on the tramp, playing with our fun Christmas toys and making big messes. We braved the weather to go to the YMCA (for mom to teach her classes) and to go swimming! The cold has not stopped us from having fun. But it does take a lot longer and a lot of work to bundle up the kids and - run FAST ... inside where it is warm!
Here is a picture Jocelyn took of her finished puzzle
the Girls

Caden making messes and doing his own puzzle- so he will not wreck his sisters puzzle.

A Little Boys Love of Balls!

I did not realize how much little boys love to play with Balls.

After having two girls, who did not care much for balls. It is so funny for me to watch Caden's obsession with balls. He walks around all day saying "Ball, Ball" . He seems to always have some type of ball in his hands most of the day, in the bath , on the changing table, in bed with him. He LOVES them. He also loves making baskets. Here is few video's for the family to see him in action.
