ME are SEVEN!!!

This seems impossible.  How are growing up so quickly?!?!
It is such a joy having you as our daughters, and having you as twins.  You keep us on our toes!
Traditional breakfast cinnamon roll with the candles taking up a lot of space now!
After dinner celebration with Grandma Linda's traditional popcorn cake!

Later in January you celebrated again, with a friends party, followed by a family party...two parties in one weekend, whew!  You chose a Shopkins-theme...who doesn't love all those little things, whatever they are for?!?!

You and your lovely friends you invited.  T and H had to hang with all the girls too of course!!!

Happy 7th Birthday Madelaine!
Happy 7th Birthday Eleanor!

Cheers to a wonderful 2016!

 We feasted on our traditional fondue dinner, after having many snacks before, and still had room for dessert!
We then had an early toast, saying goodbye to a blessed 2015 and looking forward to what 2016 has to bring for the Gore family!

Christmas 2015

 We spent another Christmas Eve heading down to Great-Grandma Ollie's house in Harmony.  It was near impossible before leaving to get a family photo, let alone a photo of just the four of you...hmmm, who is missing from the photo below who was being the gem of you all?!?!?
 Thanks Harrison for agreeing to sneak into the bottom corner of this picture, along with Cisco.  At least all four of you are documented for!
 Attempting to get a photo with Grandpa and Grandma when at Great-Grandma Ollie's. 
Despite the lack of photos, there was a lot of fun, a lot of energy, and our traditional participation in making "the tree" and playing games. 

Rise and Shine, it is Christmas Morning!!!

Getting into the Christmas spirit

On the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree!
H thinks he has found the one!
Closely watching the prep so we can take it home!

Up and ready to be set free!
Santa Claus visit 2015.

 H not quite ready to get up close and personal with Santa yet!

 M and E and the tree they decorated in their bedroom.

 T and H and the tree they decorated in their bedroom.

The Christmas trees are ready and the first snow to stay has arrived.  Looks like it is time to get ready for the long winter and get the deck furniture put away!

 Pumpkin preparation!
Note the nose-plug method...still can't handle the smell, haha!
 Here we come trick-or-treating!

E a pirate and M a friendly witch!
Cousin Leela, Auntie, and Grandma Linda came along for the fun too!

Celebrating Harrison!

Pre-party snacking!

Grandpa Ken had to be extra sneaky and bring a salamander in a box as a gift!

You chose a cowboy themed party (or should I say more specifically a John Wayne themed party)!

A magazine of your favorite cowboy!

Being shy as we sang to you, goofy boy!
Happy 3rd Birthday Harrison!
We love you bunches!

Apple Orchard Fun 2015!

 It wouldn't be fall in MN if we didn't make our annual trips to our two favorite apple orchards!
