Family update

I promised a little family update so here it is. Our family is doing well – we are super busy – but I know everyone is so that’s no surprise.

Bryce – This little guy is about 15 months now. He has thinned down a little since he was born mostly because he’s so active. Bryce is still a big boy for his age and seems strong as an ox. Wrestling with Drew, running from mom, jumping on the trampoline and throwing food seem to be some of his favorite activities.

Alyssa – She started pre-school at Bethel Lutheran just last week. She goes 2 days a week, Tuesday and Thursday, and really loves it. Alyssa started dance class here in Morton as well and seems pretty pumped about that. She is getting tall and skinny and really getting a nice little attitude (kinda like mommy). She loves to ride her scooter, play with her friends in the neighborhood, play with her makeup, and watch movies.

Drew – I did a school update last week so take a look at that if you like. But other than school, Drew is doing well. He seems to be a tall kid and is starting to take a liking to some sports. For some reason, right now he states that he doesn’t want to play basketball or football because the coaches yell too much. He prefers soccer and baseball. So we’ll see where that all goes. Actually he asked if he could take golf lessons the other day – haha. I’m sure he’ll get into something as he’s a competitive little dude. He loves to ride his scooter and bike, play with the neighborhood kids, chill in his room with his cars and stuffed animals, and watch Disney Channel shows.

Sarah – She is turning into super woman. Sarah decided to watch kids from her home this fall/winter so she could make a little income yet still stay home with Bryce. So she has her hands full with that. Lots of families took her up on this and she has a nice schedule of before school, all day and after school kids. Let me just say, I COULDN’T DO IT! I was home one day while all these kids were around and almost lost my mind 🙂 But she loves it and takes great care of these kids. She has also been doing a lot of stuff with her girl friends as of late. Pedicures, working out at Golds, etc…

Ryan – Same old for me. Working hard and coming home to hang out with the kids. Football started up so I love this time of year. Doing a little recreational sports betting here or there just to make things interesting. I have been going to Gold’s Gym as well trying to workout both my upper and lower body and include some cardio. It’s been awhile since I’ve touched a weight.

So that’s that.  As for pictures, I try to keep Facebook updated with some pictures so check that out if you want to see the family photos.  A Knuppel family update in about 4 paragraphs. How is everyone else?

Bethel Lutheran Christmas Program

Drew and Alyssa had their first Christmas program at Bethel Lutheran tonight.  It went very well.  We were quite proud of the kiddos.  Remember back just a few years ago when Drew was 3.  He HATED this type of thing and cried the entire time on stage.  This year, he marched up there proud as can be and sung every song!  Alyssa did the same thing.  It probably comforted her knowing her big brother was on stage as well.  After the music we did some pictures, visited the kids rooms and headed back to our place for ice cream and cookies.  Both sides of Grandparents made the event.  Enjoy the pictures.
