First Christmas!

Christmas was very good for Nikki! She and her new cousin, Heidi, made quite the haul. This year we went down to my sister's house in Inver Grove Heights. We celebrated Christmas Eve there, then drove to Andover to celebrate Christmas Day at Mike's parents.

Getting ready for summer weekends at the Ring cabin, Nikki gets her first life jacket.

More presents! ...Oma and Opa (Grandma and Grandpa) went a little over board on gifts. I think they were a little excited to finally have grandkids!

Even Kota scored a big, smoked bone. This is the "before" picture. Yum!

This is the "after" picture when he had such bad gas he had to cover up his nose! The rest of us were in pain too...

Opa Ring and Nikki, starting to wind down.
Winding down more... snuggling with Opa.

Heads get so heavy and hard to hold up by yourself when you are tired! I had to give her a little lift.

Down for the count.
I've been told I can't post any pictures of Heidi until after the birth annoucements go out. Oma was holding Heidi, which is why there are no pictures of her. As soon as the annoucements go out, I'll get some pictures up.
Too much fun and excitement! Can't wait for next year!
