Nick and Ewan visit Nebraska

We had a special treat to have our friend Nicole Burger and her 9 month old son stay with us for a few days. We were lucky to have good weather. It was chilly in the mornings but the afternoons warmed up enough to be outside. The kids were happy to be outside. Evie found her chalk and quickly decorated the back patio.

Ewan liked crawling in the grass.

He even got to swing for a bit. The kids haven't been out much before this with the weather being so cold so this was a nice treat. Ethan was happy to swing. He could swing for hours if I had more patience to stand and push him. I think an hour is my limit.

Nic brought the kids t-shirts from Reno, NV. They wore them proudly to school and told everyone about their new shirts.

We had Laurie and Mandy over for dinner to see Nic. The kids played nicely which gave us grownups time to eat and chat. Joel is feeding little Ewan. He is such a good boy. He never fusses and takes every situation (however loud and no matter how many kids are in his space) and handled it like a pro.

Ethan sporting his t-shirt from Nic and giving some love to Emma. He was actually quite flirtatious.

Good morning Ewan. The kids usually huddled around where ever Ewan was. It was fun to have a baby in the house.

Once again the kids gathered around Ewan eating. We're just getting ready for the kids' Christmas concert at church. They just got out of the bath and Ethan came down wearing Ewan's pants. I couldn't believe they fit him around the waist but as you can see they were quite short.

After dinner, we headed to the kids Church school for a little Christmas concert.

Ethan was a present. His whole class dressed up as presents. Ethan was a good boy. I wasn't sure if he would stay put but he didn't move. He just stood as still as I have ever seen him.

With party hats on they sang Happy Birthday to Jesus

Ewan enjoyed the music. It was cute to see him clapping or eating his snacks like popcorn at a theater.

After the concert the kids enjoyed a snack reception and ran around with their friends. Nic and Ewan took off at 5:30am the next morning so it was off to bed and an early morning. We had a great time seeing baby Ewan. Thanks again for the visit Nic!!
