Happy Birthday, Daddy!
As you can see, the VanOmmen girls firmly believe there is a direct correlation between the amount of sprinkles on a cake and how happy your birthday is. :)

We headed to Leber Tree Farm with Scott and Stacey and snagged a great Fraser Fir (an excellent choice for all of you light-stringers who don't want to constantly get poked by sharp needles).

After weeks (maybe months?) of asking the girls finally got to wear their Christmas jammies. Mom made them wait until Thanksgiving - how mean!

The VanOmmen family went camping last night, complete with hobo pies and swimming (see yesterday's post). Here's our campsite. For the record Mike slept in the tent with the girls while Lisa enjoyed a bed all to herself.

11.14.11 wonder it's so difficult to find a matching pair of shoes in our tiny closet. And I have a feeling it's only going to get worse as the girls get older...

Grandpa VanOmmen gave us a tour of the Consumers Energy power plant where he works. We even got to ride on the HUGE bulldozer!

Running on the track at recess has many benefits, including tattoos and stickers as rewards. The stickers she always shares with her sister; the tattoos, well, let's just say it's really hard to share just one.
