Christmas break fun- friends in Des Moines, NYE cousin party, Brooks' first birthday/dedication.

We've had a fun Christmas break! We spent the first part at home and celebrating with the De Jongs. After actual Christmas, the girls and I went to Des Moines for a couple days. Kley had to stay back to work. We got to see my sister and my brother and his family before they left for a trip and my sister had to work, and we also got to see two of my good friends from childhood, Lauren and Stephanie. 

Then we headed to Minneapolis for NYE weekend to my other sister's house. Kley could come with this time! We had a fun cousin New Year's party, and we also celebrated my nephew's first birthday party and his dedication at their church. Thankful for sweet times!         

We had a fun cousin dance party in the basement and watched the ball drop from last year! :)

Brooks enjoyed his first birthday cupcake. 

The girls loved swimming at my parent's hotel while the younger cousins napped. (We stayed in my sister's basement and my parent's and Zack's parents stayed in a hotel.)

Ice cream run. We went to Original Malt Shop, where we used to go sometimes when we went to Bethel, and it was delicious and fun to go back!

Seeing friends in Des Moines- Lauren's kids Reese and Ray.

Stephanie and I. Glad to see some friends that I don't get to see very often!
