Happy Easter! 2015

 Easter egg dying...
 After church on Easter Sunday.  Flowers we picked out with Grandma Linda which were used to decorate church.
 Cisco of course felt he needed to join in the photo fun...
Boy bonding time with Papa at park near Grandma Van's assisted living residence, where we celebrated with Grandpa Ken's family.

And the newest member of the Gore house has arrived!!!

Not sure who was more excited to bring him home...Papa or the kids.  Unfortunately as timing had it, Papa had to leave 5 days later for work to China and Hong Kong...for 21 days!!!! Mama is only recording this so her brain can remember how fast and yet how slow these 21 days went.  During this time frame, 14 of the nights were spent dealing with the flu bug which went through all 4 of you.  We had a snow storm, and we (read Mama) was trying to potty train this little pup which meant a fair share of accidents to clean up, garbage tipped over once, and I'm likely forgetting something...but we survived, and Cisco quickly became a part of the family as you can see from below.

 His arrival home...
A few pics from Cisco's first month in our home...








 Mama already has a hard enough time keeping up to date on pictures of we kids, and now she has to add puppy pictures into the mix!

ME turn 6!!!!!!

Madelaine and Eleanor can no longer display their age on just one hand...where has time gone!?!?!
You two really wanted to have a "friends" birthday party this year, but Papa and Mama were just not quite ready to venture down that road yet.  So instead we persuaded you that making a trip to the Mall of America and the American Girl Doll Store and having an overnight at a water park hotel should make up for this...and I think you both would agree. 
Marie Grace and Caroline in tow, looking for a new outfit...
 The boys had a fun time too, seeing the lego displays...
 Your birthday fell on a Monday this year, so you were able to celebrate at school and bring treats for your classes.  Traditional birthday cinnamon roll with candles...
 Wearing your birthday gear you received at school...
 Enjoying the special cake your brothers decorated while you were away at school...
 Happy 6th Birthday Eleanor and Madelaine.  Love you bunches!!!
XOXOXOXOXOXO

New Years Eve 2014

New Years Eve at the Gore household was filled with games (the girls led us in Bingo using the microphone and hand-crafted bingo cards...high end here!), food (we again did meat fondu and it was enjoyed by all), and we also watched a movie before heading to bed maybe just a wee bit past normal time...
Always have to have at least one boy in cowboy attire in this household...
 Ringing in the new year early...
Harrison and Eleanor...
 Madelaine and Mama...
 Papa and Theodore...
Wishes for a healthy and happy 2015!!!
