Liam slept for over 3 hours at nap time and my hubby came home with a chocolate iced coffee and this sign for me. So despite the -30 wind chill, this day has totally warmed my heart.

Liam's Knights finally have a castle to defend. Many epic battles have already been fought here since Christmas.
After his nap, he requested hot chocolate with marshmallows and to watch Frosty the Snowman.
Saturday morning we got up and enjoyed Grandma's yummy cinnamon pull aparts and played until it was time to go back to Parker.
We had the Friman family Christmas Saturday afternoon. Liam had a blast playing with all his cousins!
Then we came back to our house to celebrate Christmas with Uncle Kyle, Tara, and Papa & Grandma Masters.
After Liam was sleeping Saturday night Daddy and I decided to relax and enjoy and yummy Christmas drink. Unfortunately the drink didn't taste as good as it sounded. But we still said "cheers" to another wonderful Christmas surrounded by people we love.
The day after Christmas we were still in Chamberlain. We stayed in our pajamas and played for part of the morning. Then we went over to "Papa's pool" and went swimming.
Liam had a blast as always and we all got to burn off some of the Christmas goodies from the last few days.
Then we went back to Papa and Grandma's house to play and have a fish fry.
If you ever get the chance to eat my Mom's fried walleye, don't turn her down.
There is nothing like it!
Friday evening we went to one of our favorite little spots in Chamberlain for dinner. Liam spent his time playing pool and eating all of his food (and most of mine too).
On Christmas morning, Liam was SO excited to give Daddy the present he had made him.
He barely gave Daddy time to wake up, before he was making him open his present.
When we got to Grandma & Papa Dominiack's, everyone was waiting to open gifts.
Then we had to play some Yahtzee. Our new puppy, Chief kept nibbling on Aunt Carol's toes while we tried to play. He just couldn't resist her fuzzy socks.
We are so thankful for the beautiful light of Christmas and all of our family and friends. We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas this year too!
Christmas Eve was wonderful and busy.
We finally got around to making our sugar cookies.
Liam had a blast baking and decorating them this year.
Christmas Eve church service is always one of my absolute favorite parts of Christmas. The candlelight reminding me that in this dark world we can always have hope because of the light God sent for us through his son, Jesus. What an incredible gift. The most wonderful gift we have ever received on any Christmas!
My little man was so proud of his Snoopy Christmas sweater. We had to take another picture of it before he took it off for bed time.I am just beyond blessed to be his mama.
Then Daddy read him the Little Blue Truck Christmas book before going to bed.
Santa came and filled our stockings and left some special presents under our tree.
And Mama & Daddy sat by the fire watching "It's a Wonderful Life".
And it really is!
