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.

For the second year in a row, we went to the Connors’ for Thanksgiving, in Kansas City. Fun was had.

Halloween 2019

I guess a more apt title for this post would be “Beggars Night 2019,” but I feel like I am already committed. This year we trick-or-treated on a Wednesday night. Elliot, Lucia, and Rose dressed up and ventured out and Andrew and Mari stayed home to pass out candy.
