Christmas Family Weekend

We were so excited for our Christmas family weekend that we had planned for earlier this month! My brother's family lives in Chicago and have three boys, we are in Minneapolis, and my parents live in Des Moines so anytime we can get together is always fun.

My parents arrived first and Papa showed up with donuts from Clear Lake, Iowa! 

I made lots of my favorite holiday side dishes to eat when they arrived.

And Bradley caught up on some reading while we were waiting for them (plane was delayed).

Chim relaxed on Grandma while waiting.

The next morning the cousins were so excited to find out Papa and Grandma are taking all of us to Disney! They might have been more excited that we got them Mickey and Minnie balloons. :)

The girls were dressed and ready for the announcement!

My SIL is one of my best friends and I get so excited when we are in the same state! I also force her to take fun pics with me. :) We had my favorite hot chocolate to celebrate with!

Papa had a kid or baby in his lap the entire weekend. :)

Mall of America time! 

We went when it opened so the kids could go on lots of rides! Wish we got a group pic.

The girls went shopping instead.

My little reindeer babies!

Cutie cousins watching a movie. We had pizza and movie time the rest of the day.

Sunday we took full family pics and it was FREEZING! Grandma and Carmen warming up in the car.

But Lindsey got some good ones! Isn't this the cutest of Grandma and the girls??


Best grandparents ever!

We wanted to get the kids to pose with the Disney balloons but thought they were too wild after pics and that it wouldn't happen. So we had our own photo shoot! :)

But the boys actually cooperated and posed for us! Kind of... :)

Then it was the girl's turn! 

It was a great weekend but so quick! At least we will be together again soon in Disney World!
