Christmas Joys

Mitchell is obsessed with cars so naturally he was completely thrilled with his 4-wheeler from Santa Claus. (aka Eliot who had his heart set on getting this for Mitchell. There was no negotiating.) Notice the stream of drool dripping down his chin. He was so excited he forgot to swallow.

Here is Madison posing quite seriously near many of her Christmas treasures. She is wearing her new bathrobe, standing next to her scooter, and displaying her glow-in-the-dark stars. (Thank you Vanna.)

Les Bois

This is a picture of the adults (Jennie, Mike, Angie, Eliot, Natalie, and Brian) after our date night at Mona Lisa Fondue in Boise. We had a blast! Special thanks to Mike's two nieces who put all seven kids, including three babies, to bed. It was definitely a memorable meal complete with a few laughs!
Madison had a blast in the snow while we were in Boise. There had a been a snow storm just prior to our arrival, which was great! We definitely wanted to see some snow because it has become a novelty for us. This is Danny and Madison sledding together.
A Swensen Sister gathering would not be complete without some serious singing. We got out the spoons for old times sake. I think we are singing our hearts out to Kelly Clarkson. It was so fun! I think the kids were a little shocked. I believe the husbands are used to it by now.
The three youngest boy cousins in their matching firetruck pajamas from Grandma Swensen. Mitchell - 19 months, Ryan - 3 years, and Wesley - 8 months. By the way, Ryan and Wesley are holding waffles. Whatever it takes to get a good picture.
