January 2016

Happy New Year!
We had an awesome family New Year's Eve party, and I'm so sad I don't have pictures! We had our first annual New Year's Family Talent Show. The kids prepared all week after Christmas to share a talent. We invited my mom and Duke over with Duke's daughter Jenna who was in town visiting! We ate yummy food and on with the show...
Jake played the guitar and sang
I rapped... because that's how I roll
Mom made an advertisement for the Bait Sandwich Shop over by Lucas
Duke told a story
Jenna recited a poem while doing some arm and shoulder contortions --Sadie attempted the same moves. :)
The kids each did a dance --Thanks, Kids Bop!-- and then they did another dance. And then they each told a story. And then I reminded them that they were only supposed to do one talent and that this couldn't last all night.
We then did some early stream poppers in the backyard to celebrate that it was midnight somewhere. The kids were put to bed while the adults played games.
It was a super fun night and a great way to ring in the new year.

 Tessa's game box! What a cool experience this was for Tessa to model for a game. It was easy, low key, and fun. Plus, she got paid in games.
Mastermind for kids.
She will also be featured on a game coming out called Topple.

Gavin started the messy journey of solids:

  Tower skills.
 SafeSplash swimming student of the month.  "Cole is always excited to come to class and willing to learn. He is enthusiastic about learning new things and even perfecting things he already knows. His cheerful attitude and fearless nature makes him a pleasure to teach." Good job, kid!
 Slushees in January? Yep.
