Happy Mother’s Day

It may have been one of the colder Mother’s Days on record but today we celebrated in what has become the traditional ways. Susan joined Kathie and Erin for a walk in the early afternoon and then when she got home we did some planting and had salads.

Liess Family Christmas

This year we celebrated Liess Family Christmas on New Year’s Day. Where are our NYE pictures, you might be wondering? Rose ended up being sick on New Years, so we didn’t take many pictures. We did have the Connors and the Reagens over.

Christmas 2020

Our Christmas was a little different this year than in years past. Normally we do our thing in the morning and then join the Reagens and Liesses in the afternoon to celebrate Nate’s birthday. This year the Reagens were traveling, so we did our thing most of the day and then join Mimi & Papa at Perkins for dinner, before driving around to look at some Christmas lights.

The little girls had a blast with all of their new things.
The big kids opened some presents, too.
Also, it was really warm.

Solstice Hike

Warming by the fire after the hike.

This evening we celebrated Solstice by going for a night hike at Jester Park. They lined a short trail with lanterns and luminaries and then had hot chocolate and smores afterward.

Saturday Happenings

This afternoon we paid a visit to Greenwood Park, where the kids used to come every Monday during homeschooling. The pond was awesomely frozen and we enjoyed the lower access. Elliot also saw a big mammal swimming under the ice.
In the evening we went to the mall to hang out and walk around for a bit. Rose wanted to visit Santa, so we did just that.
