Greetings from Aberdeen!

  Well we arrived at Gma and Gpa H’s house after a long, eventful trip from MN to SD.  Snow, wind, ice, puke and slow drivers were some of the things we encountered.  We were pretty glad when the five hours were up and we arrived at Gma and Gpa’s.   Someone may or may not have smelled like vomit, but they didn’t mind.  Wink

Avery recovered from what appeared to be motion sickness and moved right in to Grandma’s.  Grandma had a cradle all ready for her babies and she knew just what to do.

As usual, food is being consumed in mass quantities.  This is Caramel Apple Bread and its the most delicious thing EVER!   DSC_3314

The kids have been eating their weight in cookies. DSC_3317

And “helping” out in the kitchen. DSC_3323 DSC_3325 DSC_3326 DSC_3329 DSC_3332

Avery also made good use of a tiny rocking chair.  For herself AND her babies. DSC_3334 DSC_3336 DSC_3339 DSC_3341

I don’t know who took this picture, but it turned out cute.  Love how Avery has moved in on Natalie’s monkey. DSC_3343

It wouldn’t be a trip to my parents house without some fun costume changes!  Found this fun hairpiece in the basement while I was searching for leotards and leg warmers.  Didn’t find the leotards and legwarmers, but finding this was fun!DSC_3345

You have to toss your hair around when you have long locks. DSC_3347


More binging that had to be documented.DSC_3351

Awesommmmme. DSC_3355 DSC_3356

And it wouldn’t be a binge party without pizza!  We had several different kinds.  In fact, 2 of those kinds are sitting here uneaten as we all ate WAAAAY too much of the other kinds that were out of the oven first.  Ah well, more for tomorrow! DSC_3362 DSC_3363

Check it out – a Christmas pizza! DSC_3365 DSC_3370 DSC_3371

Jon was upset to discover that this cracker tin was spoken for. DSC_3375

I even had my Dad sign off on it the last time we were here.  It will be mine.  Oh yes.  It will be mine.  Muahahahahhahaa DSC_3376

And finally, pukey magoo gets the stench off of her.  Only kidding – she only had stink on her clothes.  But she DID need a bath.  She enjoyed the bubbles a lot.  Made up for the lack of toys. Wink DSC_3378

Well, that is all for now.  Join us for more later, won’t you?
