Nerf War!

Week 52 of 52- December 30th We ended the year on a high note with the Annual Peterson Nerf War!  This year was one of the most enjoyable yet, thanks to a few rule changes! The kids fort! The dads! Super Adam I have no idea where their “crazy” comes from but all 3 of them have it! I had to put these in even though they don’t truly capture it… Caleb ran right up to the Dad’s fort and busted through it, even though the dad’s were standing ready with their guns. The child has no fear. After some fierce competition, the kids pummeled the dads this...

Caleb’s Wish

Week #52 of 52- December 29th Caleb started asking as soon as we arrived at Grandma and Grandpa Peterson’s house… “Can I hold the dogs?  PLEASE??”  To most people, this isn’t a big deal.  But to him, it is huge.  He loves animals.  I hate that he is so allergic to the animals that he loves so dearly!  His whole room is devoted to animals because they are one of his favorite things, but yet he can’t really get near any of them!  We found out how severe his allergies were to dogs when he was only a year old.  His wish was granted on Sunday.  We have...

Christmas at the Petersons

Week #52 of 52- December 27th We headed to the Petersons on Friday afternoon.  The cousins are always overjoyed to see one another!  That evening, we opened gifts around the tree.  The cousins gave out their gifts to one another and then Grandma and Grandpa passed out their gifts.  Treasured moments for sure! Caleb and Grandpa. Before the opening of gifts, we had a special time of singing accompanied by piano and guitar. The Peterson Family 2013 The silly shot! Grandpa sang this song to each of the grandkids when they were little ones.  The song is a special one in the Peterson family...

Time for Bowling!

Week #52 of 52- December 26th It is really hard for me to believe that my boys have never been bowling with my dad.  It was time to change that! Growing up, we actually went bowling as a family quite often.  I was never really that great at it but my dad is another story!  He loves bowling and is quite good at it.   We bowled a couple of games, just the 7 of us, and had so much fun! My 3 crazies. The boys were in awe of Grandpa’s Strikes.  It got to the point that they would all stop what they were doing and watch him each time he bowled.  No pressure! Had to put a...
