Merry Christmas, and wake me after New Years!

We're back in Grand Rapids now. I can't remember ever having a trip to my parents that was both so fun and so incredibly exhausting. When we weren't chasing around after 3 toddlers, we were either eating or playing Wii. Kevin pretty much ruled, but Jen took him down a notch by cleaning his clock with bowling on Sunday night.

The trip back was uneventful, if a little frightning at times--the winds really kicked up when we got into Michigan. The fun started when we got home--Jen's boss's daughter house sat for us. She had one of our spare keys, and her mom had the other. Unfortunately, we don't actually have two spare keys--I put mine in our super secret extra key location just in case they needed it. So we got home and had no key to the house. I had to climb in through a window.

Then (and we didn't realize this until later), we found that we had water in the basement. I think all of the snow melt and rain was too much for our ground to handle. Thankfully it isn't too bad, and there's really nothing of value that got wet. I'd much rather have some water in the basement than have the roof ice dam up again--the roof seemed to come out fine.

I picked out a Christmas picture from each kid to share; we may post more in the weeks to come.

The Divas

Kaylee and Katie broke into an impromptu song last night--so impromptu that nobody knows what they were singing...
