After dropping off our coats at my desk and playing the marble game we headed upstairs for our gifts (some sort of number foamy puzzle thing. Since both kids were in the 0-2 years range, we gifted one of them to cousin Jamie).
Here are mom and Lucy enjoying ice cream and cookies:
Loaded up on sweets, we were all smiles and ready for face painting!
Now things get serious...Rudolph on Lucy's face:
You're a bad banana with a greasy black peel....
After the 20 minute or so wait, the excitement had waned for Lucy, but not for Max!
These pictures are from yesterday. Max is wearing a sweater knitted by Auntie Annette:
Abby gets in on the photo op:
Tonight we are heading over to Nana and Papa's to crash the choir Christmas Party!

This past Saturday, we headed down to Mankato for the wedding of cousin Heather and Andrew. Everything went beautifully. The kids stayed home overnight in the care of Annette and Troy, our friends from church. Lucy had her first farm visit and it sounds like there should be more of those in the future with her new-found love of cows!

Last week The Living Stones played an outdoor concert on the church lawns, narrowly missing a downpour. There were lots of pies and ice cream and socializing while we listened and sang along to their famous hits!
Some of the townies:
Max in Auntie Annette's lap:
Lucy and her friend and dance partner, Hope:
This was the SECOND ice cream cone of the night. Thanks Papa!
All smiles after ice cream and baths:
Max trying out the Bumbo for the first time:
This morning I tried to work and occupy Lucy with crayola markers:
Red hair?? Could be the pink chair he's sitting in:

They had younger zoo "people" all along the paths with various creatures to teach us about. Lucy loved the big toad!
Bummer :( Sparky the Seal doesn't do Mondays, so we had to watch the seals lazily swimming in circles. I remember being little and buying cups of stinky fish to feed these seals!
Her first carnival ride. Notice the stink eye. She was ready for a nap 15 minutes before this...

On Sunday, Lucy helped daddy wash all the mud off the truck. She really got into it!
Max and Lucy chillin' with daddy:
Max hanging out with Uncle Duffy:
What IS this? My daughter is addicted to the ribbon on her "woobie" and likes to stick it in the corner of her eye. HUH? Yes. It's her comfort item and when she has it, she sticks it in her eye. hmmm....
