Our van was starting to have more and more problems. We started to casually look for a new car a few weeks ago. On Saturday we went to a car dealership where we found a new car!! It’s a 2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite! I love it!!
It has 8 seats
It has a back up camera!!
Pretty cool to just push a button to start the car!
I love using LipSense!
On Sunday I wore Praline Rose for the first time.
I have always wanted to have my own space where I can do my make up, hair, lips, and nails. Eric got me this table for Christmas!

We took the kids to the hot tub last week. They were so crazy and played in the snow and then jumped into the warm water. They had so much fun!
We loved our Christmas. It was such a nice, relaxing day. I even took a nap in the middle of the day. Eric’s mom and Paul came over and we spent the day with them. The kids played with their new toys all day and also watched a movie. We had steak for dinner and lots of treats after. We were stuffed!
What the kids woke up to
Nicci is so cute. She made this for Savannah, Lionel and Jordan. Their favorite characters.
We woke up to a white Christmas.
Nicci made this at school!
Lionel doing an experiment!
Nicci’s favorite new toy. Her cat Lily.
The kids had a Christmas program at school the day before Christmas break started. Normally Eric watches the younger kids when I go to watch the older ones at school for different things, but this day he had something at work he couldn’t skip. So I brought the younger ones and they were good for the first 15 min but then they started to want to walk/run around or sit on me and bounce when I was trying to record. You can tell that the videos are very shaky at times. During Lionel’s last song Tyler almost ran up to the stage so I couldn’t finish recording. I told Eric that I will never bring them again hahaha.
My friend and neighbor Diana invited us to a Polar express party on the first day of the kids Christmas break. She had us moms take turns to read the Polar express book to the kids, then we had cookies and hot chocolate and then we watched the movie. The kids had a great time with their friends and I had fun getting to know some of my neighbors better!
