We kicked off December in Rochester to SECRETLY surprise Heinz for his 70th birthday!!

and just minutes after we arrived Reagan did a cartwheel and smacked her foot on Kristin's the next morning it was still really bothering Reagan so to urgent care they went for a boot!

The BOY cousins

Keith gave a great speech/toast for his dad!

Opa and his grandchildren!

These two are two peas in a pod!

Back with her BFF the Moose!

Jingle Elfie is BAAAAACK!

Happy 9 1/2 to Reagan!!

That foot was STILL hurting so to AI we went and low and behold, it was broken!  Starting with a walking boot for 2 weeks.  ...the same weekend as her nutcracker performance! :(

The dance studio improvised for Reagan and thankfully she was still able to participate!

Christmas concert time!!

Having a post Christmas concert lunch with Daddy at Metro :)

Nothing says MERRY CHRISTMAS like a day in NYC!!  It was just Diane, Reagan, and I this year and the added challenge of Reagan's foot left her in a stroller, which was kind of crazy, but we had a great day!!  I drove into the city for the first time and we got there so early it was a breeze!

After the show we did the Behind the Scenes tour of Radio City.  It was so fun and we got to meet a Rockette!  Reagan loved it!

Lunchtime and a yummy milkshake!!

American Girl store, of course!!

Auntie Em met up with us!

We had a GREAT day!!  SO much fun to be in the city, but SOOO nice to come home to the farmland around us!

Maddie and her dog dog!  They love each other so much!
