Bowling and Playing with Kim!

So we were kicked out of Jim and Linda's for a while so we decided that we would go bowling. Everyone had a great game the first game (except for Caristy) and then the second game, I (caristy) did much better! Not a good bowler! Then we went back to John's parent's house and had dinner. Kim got to hold Little N and entertained him with a placemat.....anything is a toy or interesting to a little kid!! :-)

Mommy, I don't feel good! :-(

Our Travels back to the Midwest!

We started our journey with lunch, but they weren't quite serving it yet so we had breakfast food for lunch. Then we went to the airport....shoes off, including Little N's which we just thought was hilarious. Traveling this time was not as smooth because Little N was starting to get a cold and just couldn't get comfortable....sorry for the crying! Sigh.....being sick is no fun when you travel. Then we went to Grandpa and Grandma Olson's house and Little N got to have some food. Yummy! Then we went to sleep waiting for.......Ole and Kim to come!
P.S. We traveled on (Tante) Lexi's birthday! We wish that we could have celebrated with her but she was in NY and we were traveling. Happy birthday to you!! Happy birthday to you!! Happy birthday Lexi.....happy birthday to you! (P.S. we have a surprise for you at mom and dad's house!!)

Hey look at ME!!

Caristy's Dad when all of his kids were little used to hold them up in the air with one hand and just balance them. So now we have a new tradition of him holding his grandson up in the air with one hand. I'll have to see if I can find a picture of him doing that to me. :-)

Dinner and Bribes!!

We went out to dinner with Tante Gale and then afterwards we went to go visit with the Skarets'. Rich decided to bribe his nephew with money into liking him....eventually that technique will work with little N. :-) Also we took pictures of Leanna with Little N.

Hanging with the Nilsen's! :-)

While Little N and Caristy were out in CT we got to go and see the Kjirsti, and the kids. Kjirsti picked us up and we spent the day hanging out. It was fun to watch Little N watching all the kids play and then occasionally getting almost smoothered by the twins! Thanks guys for a fun day....can't wait till all the kids are able to play together.

Playing Volleyball

Lexi invited me to play volleyball. We had alot of fun playing. :-) Then they decided to spike which I can't do it! :-( So I took pictures....then Lexi decided to play basketball against Dave. Pretty sure that she kicked his butt! :-) I love my sister...thanks for including me.

Happy Birthday Grandma!

Caristy's Grandma turned 80 years old this year. She had all her kids and grandchildren (except for one grandson and John) and then her great grandchildren. We ate at Outback Steakhouse...it was awesome food. Then afterwards we went to her house and hung out some more. Happy Birthday Grandma.....we love you!!

Little N the puppet!!

Reading (and eating) the paper!

Hanging out with Little L (and his family!)

We got to go see Little L.....I can't believe that he turned a year already!! He's such a sweet kid and I wish that we could be around him more. Here are some of the pictures of us hanging out. Happy birthday Little L! :-) Sorry that Little N and I won't be able to make it to your birthday party on Sunday.

Eating with Tante Lexi!

Tante Lexi was around and got to feed Little N.....he gobbled it up like a little bird! He just kept on wanting more. Tante Lexi also liked the fact that Little N cried for her and wanted her when Caristy wasn't around. She was pretty excited.

Snow Fun!!

Since we live out in the wonderful Midwest (brr...) we don't really have opportunities to really go outside to go and play in the snow!! The day after we arrived in CT we got hit with a Noreastern (basically alot of snow) so Little N and I (Caristy) decided to take the garbage can in for Caristy's mom and then take Little N's first picture of him in the snow. He wasn't so sure about it but he liked being able to just hang out......and not rush from one place to the other when he goes outside.

Hanging out with the cousins!!

We went to Fargo and dropped something off at Rachel's.....Little N was a little overwhelmed by all his cousins but Ingrid loved to entertain him. :-) Reagan didn't really want to share her toys with him....but I don't think that Little N would want to share with anyone either! :-)
