The Barbie House!

Jared built a beautiful Barbie house for Lauren and Emma for Christmas. This is a picture of the final product just before the girls saw it for the first time.



Just after seeing the house, the girls were excited, but needed some prodding to
really check it out.
Emma checking to see how much of her body could fit in the house.







After opening the rest of their presents, the girls had a chance to settle in to the house. Thanks to Grandpas and Grandmas, their house is well-furnished.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! We wanted to send our greetings to everyone we can't see today. Love you!

Emma had fun watching her big cousin Joey using his Wii Fit, so she decided to create her own wii balance board with a white dvd case.

Lauren and her cousin Taylor playing with their new princess dolls.
Emma enjoying her new mailbox. It's provided lots of enterainment for her as well as her cousins. Notice the ever-present Emma tongue hanging out as she concentrates.



Emma also enjoyed taking some rides in a Lego wagon provided by her cousin Kara.

Lauren's Surgery Update

Today, we had to take Lauren to have a surgical procedure done at the Sioux Falls Surgical Hospital. Everything went well with the procedure and aside from a little pain and some groggyness she is doing well. Thank you to everyone who was thinking about and praying for her. Her favorite part was that she got a sparklee band-aid when they took her IV out. And I think Emma enjoyed a day at home with Grandma without her sister around, it sounds like she took at advantage and played with all of her big sister'st stuff.
