December Daily 2016 Day 12

The sun tried to come out this morning, but then it snowed for most of the day. Around 3:30, the sun came back out just in time to set. It’s below zero as I type this, with wind chills in the negative teens. This is the northern Minnesota winter I hate. For the next two weeks (or more) we only go outside when it’s absolutely necessary.

December Daily 2016 Day 11

My sister and I were up until 2:30am wrapping presents. Then we had to get up early since my husband was bringing my kids over (he had to work). We spent the day cleaning out and decorating the utility room in my sister’s house. She had fabric that we put on the floor to look like snow, and some photo booth backdrops for Christmas Eve. We also hung ornaments from the ceiling in her living room and put up holidays stickers on her walls. I’m not sure how much will survive on Christmas Eve, with 5 kids and 3 dogs, but at least everyone will have fun! (And it’s pretty to look at!)

December Daily 2016 Day 8

We didn’t do much yesterday for Lauren’s birthday, since Avery was up all night with the flu. Lauren got mac & cheese for dinner and a cupcake with a candle (she loves to blow out the candles), and one more present. We did a Facebook Live video so my parents and other family could help Lauren celebrate. I’m glad we decided to have a party last weekend.

Nine.

Lauren is nine years old today!

She is in third grade, loves to ride the bus home, is obsessed with Elena of Avalor and loves to play with her sisters and cousins. She says she missed summer – going to the park is her favorite thing and she can’t wait until she doesn’t need a coat.

The following photos are from January 2016 to December 2016 (not in order).

December Daily 2016 Day 6

I didn’t take any photos today. We had 20-30mph winds, blowing snow and a windchill near zero, so we stayed in and watched TV all day. Then, we rented some movies from Redbox, but our DVD player died, so we had to pick up a new one tonight. (We rented Pete’s Dragon and a Barbie movie.)

These photos were from yesterday (Monday).

December Daily 2016 Day 5

We had a ‘Minnesota Weather’ day today. Sunny, then foggy, then windy and sunny, then cloudy, then blizzard. We ended up with about a half inch of snow, but we’re supposed to get 40mph winds tomorrow, so there may be some drifts.

We had just got back home after picking up Avery from school. I told her I wanted to get some photos of her in the snow so she tried to do all sorts of poses. Mostly, she tried to catch the big, fluffy flakes with her tongue.
