As you know, we flew to Grandma Debbie and Grandpa Rod’s house in South Dakota for Christmas. If you missed our previous blog post about Noah’s outdoor adventures in the snow, you can read it here. There was plenty of indoor fun too – and thank goodness since it was cold!!!
We celebrated Christmas at Aunt Jenny and Uncle Sean’s house. Noah had a blast playing with his cousins Abby, Nathan, Cory, Tyler and Wyatt. The whole gang was there!
Here are a few photos of everyone wearing new SDSU gear. Don’t tell anyone that there is a Coyote hiding the mix…
And here’s a short video of Noah and Wyatt playing with their trucks. “Backing up! Beep, beep!” As a quick reminder: If you’re reading this post in an email, you may need to open the blog webpage in order to view the video.

For the next few days, we just hung out at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. When we weren’t playing outside, Noah kept us busy racing cars and trucks, building with Legos and magnetic blocks, playing with trains, and just being silly. Thanks for all the cool new toys, Grandma and Grandpa!
Later that week we met up with the whole gang again in Sioux Falls to celebrate Grandpa Rod’s birthday. We did a little shopping in the downtown area, and then we went to Josiah’s Coffeehouse for hot chocolate, coffee and treats – yummy!
Next we drove and walked around the Falls Park area. Yes, good thing our bellies were warm with hot chocolate and coffee! Cheese!
Then we all headed to the hotel to go swimming. Noah had a great time swimming with the boys!
Guess whose feet these are?
The birthday boy! Grandpa Rod flew down that slide!
After everyone was done swimming, we had pizza and birthday cake to celebrate. Happy birthday, Grandpa Rod!
We had a great time in South Dakota. We’ll see you all again soon!
