Brady definitely inherited my love for basketball! We spent most of the winter cheering on our favorite teams...UNI Panthers, Kansas Jayhawks and many others! We also were able to go and watch my hometown team (my uncles is the coach and my cousin, Rachel was the starting point guard) play at the state tournament. Brady had so much fun cheering for them!
We had to get in our UNI gear for some pics the day that they played in the tourney.
I know it's been a while but I will post some recaps! First, to start our year, Cora Jo Petersen was born on January 15th. She is so adorable and we all love her so much! Here are some random pics of the sweet pea!
Friday mid-morning we headed back to Kimballton for the Petersen family Christmas. It was so fun having everyone together on my dad's side. We always sing Christmas songs (and Happy Birthday to Jesus), do a fun grab bag and eats lots of yummy food! Then on Saturday morning we headed up to the Nursing Home to see my Grandma Parker and the Parker clan for a great breakfast and family time. After that it was back to my parents' for our Christmas complete with more gifts (we were way too spoiled this year) and more great food!!! Then Saturday afternoon it was my turn to get sick...aghh!!! Oh well, all is well now!
These two were ready for the Petersen Christmas...they are inseparable!
These two were so excited for new tablets...they both had broken their other ones so were so happy to get new ones...which is why we never get them super expensive ones...
After a quick breakfast we loaded up and drove to Gowrie. Once everyone was there it was time for a yummy brunch and gifts! We were all so spoiled and the boys were so excited to play with their cousins and their new toys! Our time in Gowrie was somewhat quick...we headed to Kimballton Friday morning...we were on the go, go, go!!
Mason had so much fun opening gifts this year. It was so fun to see him get in to it this year!
We had a wonderful Christmas and we hope you did too! We did start the Holidays with some illness. Brady came down with a nasty virus and it changed our Christmas Eve plans a bit but all that mattered was that we were together! We started Christmas morning at home...here are some pics!
The boys excited to head to the basement to see if Santa came!
The boys enjoying the gifts from Mom and Dad...

Brady was so excited that Santa came!
We had a great time opening gifts...after a quick breakfast snack, we headed to Gowrie...that's up next!
Honestly, I don't know what we'd do without our basement. Life with 2 boys somewhat requires it. Anyway, a weekend tradition has been to pop some popcorn (complete with M & M's) and watch a movie. This is one of the rare times that the boys sit still for longer than 5 minutes and they also sit close together and get a long really well...oh if only they were like this all the time! Ha ha!
Andy and I met through mutual friends and started dating in 2004. We were married on September 30, 2006 and welcomed our first son, Brady in December of 2008. Our second son Mason arrived in April of 2012. We enjoy spending time with our family and friends!
