Bell Family Update–December 2016

1 Comment

We love December. Our neighborhood is quiet from the cold, extra-curricular activities take a break, and we just get more time to hole up as a family. This has been a sweet month for all of that.

Always a family favorite–wrestling Daddy. It’s getting harder and harder for him to overtake them these days. 20161128_211800468_iosAnd while he still can…20161128_211915747_ios

We all had an amazing and hard-working week with Nana!!! She came in to help me give my home a clean-sweep/re-org for the end of the year. This woman is better at this stuff than anyone I know, and she never stopped, even with a sore knee. This is an end-of-the-week movie time, complete with Nana snuggles. I was relieved Aiden wore his helmet, too, in case something came flying out of the TV screen.20161219_230521230_ios

  1. What a fun family. I love all the pictures, but especially Victoria’s face while the girls are removing their makeup. 🙂

    The snowman looks quite a bit like Olaf. And Bill soon will be overwhelmed by sheer numbers, not just size of kids, in the wrestling game.
