Auman Christmas and Farrell Polar Express party

We only had one day when my entire family would be in town, so we got to have Christmas at grandma Auman's house a couple days early this year. Usually we go there Christmas evening, which makes for a pretty long day after trying to stop at all the family houses in the area. We had a delicious and leisurely brunch and got to just hang out together. It was awesome. 

Owen got a create-a-puppet... it's kind of creepy in concept, but it was totally fun to play with. :)

Nora attacking Karen.

These little cousins are so cute together!


Tetherball is always on the agenda at grandma Auman's house.

We got grandma a new tetherball for Christmas that ended up being considerably harder than the one she had before. Nora loves trying to play tetherball with Owen and Matt, but it wasn't long before she got it straight in the face. Poor baby.

Grandma has lots of books for the kiddies to read!

Owen trying out his new science kit.

He was so excited when the vinegar/baking soda mix filled up his balloon!


Matt's family does a themed Christmas party every year. This year it was the Polar Express. We all came in our pajamas, had a hot chocolate bar, and watched The Polar Express.
