A Few Days at the Lake

During Christmas break, we went to the cabin for a few days. I love the lake! It's so beautiful and peaceful there during the winter.

Zack and I crafted a little one afternoon:

Lots of walks and playing in the snow:

It feels so weird to walk out in the middle of the lake!

Warming up and watching a movie:

It was a relaxing few days at the lake!

The boys love tobogganing! On a warmer day over Christmas break, we went to the hill for a little sledding.

Zack got a ski racer for his birthday. He was super excited to finally use it! It goes so fast!


Jakob trying it out, too:

Family Ski Day

We wanted to do a ski day as a family over Christmas break. Since it was so warm out this week, we decided the night before and went!

The boys did lessons in the morning and Michael and I joined them for the rest of the day. Everyone did great and it was a lot of fun!

We had a great Christmas! 
Christmas eve we went to church and then over to Jordan & Kristy's for the Hermann Christmas celebration:

Christmas morning we spent as a family. The boys opened their gifts and then played all morning :)

After lunch, we went to the beach club to skate. It was a bit chilly, but the boys love our skating on Christmas tradition!

After skating, we went back to our place for Christmas dinner with my parents. It was a nice, low key Christmas!

Levi & Zack's Christmas Concert

Levi & Zack's Christmas concert was really great this year! I think it was one of the best yet. The theme was snowflakes. The kids all wore white and sang in German and English about snowflakes. It was very cute!

That's it for the Elf for this year!

Bollman Christmas

We celebrated "Bollman Christmas" this past Saturday with Scott, Marnie, Sophie & Henry. The kids played, we went to Levi's soccer game, we ate and opened presents. The cousins had a great day together!
