Cranky because of football...

This is kind of a small blog entry, but I want to get it done. Also, I'm highly annoyed by the football games today. My 2 least favorite teams in the Superbowl. Anyway...Callie came to visit us on Thursday, and we were so happy to see her! She came to the Butte High/Butte Central game with us (boys won in double overtime) and brought the kids their Christmas presents. Ave is absolutely loving her easel. Thanks Cal, you're the best!
I know this is a weird picture, but I walked by the bathroom when she was brushing her teeth the other night and laughed out loud at the sight. She is so skinny!
We woke up to weird ice/snow the other day. The top of our mailbox looked pretty cool.
Our lilac bushes too.
I was reading him some little books and had to get up to get him a Kleenex. This took about 30 seconds to happen!
It was crazy hair day at daycare on Tuesday. He looked so cute!
Carterman looks good in a hat. He is a handsome fella!
My girl decided she needed to keep her hat on too. She's so pretty :)
Happy Birthday Abbey Jean! She turned 19 on the 13th.
We got her a nice Frozen ice cream cake. It was delicious!
One more of that weird snow. It was a chilly day!

Party time! Excellent!

This little gangster looked pretty amazing in her new Puma outfit that we got her for her birthday. She makes brushing her teeth look good!
Teague likes to make beautiful music with his Mickey Mouse Piano mat and Landon's old violin. He usually likes to do this at about 11 pm!
Avers made a basket the other day! She didn't really seem to care either!
Carterman has been loving basketball. He had a sweet fast break the other day!
This picture is just killing me! Bath time is always fun.
All my kids keep stealing my new purple blanket from Terri! How dare they!
How Kyle feels about One Direction:
How Avery feels about One Direction:
Happy Birthday to my Boo Bear! We were lucky the One Direction rings came in the mail at 5 o'clock that day.
Oh yeah - we are ready to party!
My little man with a big cheesy grin!
Two of Ave's little friends who came to the party - Lily and Whitney.
Carter having fun in the pirate ship.
Time to build a house - it was impressive.
Teague and Liam are good buddies. They have been having a lot of fun together at family functions lately. They are both so cute too!
The couch in their "house". That's Ave's best friend Korin with the red hair. They sit by each other in school, talk about each other constantly, and play basketball on the same team.
What a nice house! That big red thing in front of Avery was a barbecue for her to "barbecue some sausage". She kills me.
Time to blow out the candles!
Teague and Liam were definitely ready for cake!
A smile from my girl.
Jordan was able to stop by after dance luckily.
Terr, Abb, and Jord got Ave a soft blanket of her own! She loves it!
She made out pretty fantastic on presents!
Daddy helped her stay organized.

Nice sunglasses! I love Mason checking them out, and Myla exploring in the background by herself. Ave had a wonderful time! Thank you to everyone for spoiling her! We appreciate all our family and friends :)
Liam and Jamie got Ave some Whoopie Pie mix for her Easy Bake Oven. We tried them out today, and they are delicious!

Happy New Year! Ave's Birthday!

One last night of our buddy Landon staying with Carter. They loved being together. We were glad their drive home was okay the next day. We are hoping Auntie Erica and Hawkins had good first days today (back at school and at daycare respectively).
Much to Kyle's chagrin, these two have been running around together in his NBA shorts. I don't know what game they are playing, but it makes me laugh!
Happy New Year! My Boo Bear was ready for present opening - I can't believe she's 6!
She loved all her stuff, but this One Direction blanket might be her favorite.
It was definitely a theme kind of birthday, at least from us. She also got some awesome stuff from both sets of grandparents, The Vetters, The Alaska family, and Terri, Abb, and Jord. You guys are the best! She's spoiled rotten, and she knows it.
This art set from Grandma and Papa Burgman should keep her occupied for a little while I hope.
Time to decorate the cake. I made the cake, and Kyle made some frosting. It was delicious. She is wearing her One Direction nightgown under her sweater too in case you are wondering.
She picked spaghetti and turkey meatballs for her birthday dinner. Delicious!
She was conducting while we sang to her!
This girl loves a good birthday. I still can't believe she's 6!
Her face made me laugh in this one :)
Carter has been super helpful lately. He did some of the cake plates after we were done. I think he's still expecting to get money for it!
Time for more sledding. We have had lots of fun over Christmas break at the hospital and Tech. Kyle came down a bit awkwardly here!
Jordan and Teagie Pie. This was after Jordan had to take her Mom into the hospital. Terr hit the fence and cut her head. Luckily she was okay, it just bled a lot. She's a trooper. The snow was super fast that day.
Ave trying out our new triangle inner-tube.
Abb and Jord before they raced down.
Me and my big boy. He was a little nervous after Terr got hurt, so we went to Tech. There are no fences there. We stayed there for another hour. It was awesome!
Grandma asked me to take a few outside pictures. Here are my little goofballs by the reindeer.
Their house always looks very festive!
Landon gave Carter a game called Mustache Smash for Christmas. It is lots of fun! Grandma and Ave had a good time just acting out their own little plays. Example: Ave- I am the Sherriff around here! Grandma - We'll see about that (while evilly twirling her mustache). I could hear Avery laughing from the other room!
Lastly, the Boo sleeping on couch cushions at Papa's house. Carter spent the night there about 5 times over the break. Ave had to get one in. For some reason, they like to sleep on the cushions instead of a bed!
