Here is what we've been up to in December.....
Hollon brought this little wand home from my parents one weekend and she is obsessed with it
Her favorite dress for the moment
Putting water and sugar in her teacups for our elf Chippy
We roasted smores one night
Jake is playing basketball this winter. Usually we only do 2 sports a year (fall & spring). But we've found it's easy to get lazy and just stay indoors during winter. We want Jake to stay active, and we actually do better as a family when we've got a structured schedule. Plus, we are hoping this will help him with focusing. This is the first time he has ever played basketball, but so far, he seems to enjoy it!
|He is #10|
Meanwhile, sister HATES the games. She doesn't like that the refs blow the whistles too loud, she doesn't like that balls come down and hit the bleachers, she doesn't like that she can't run out to Daddy (who is helping coach).
|Jake and Hayden with their good friend Ryleigh who lives in our neighborhood (and is in their class) and came to see them play|
Hollon's dance studio had a little mini performance before their Christmas parties
My phone started acting crazy during ballet and wouldn't let me take video
Got at least a little bit of this
Sister walking in some high heeled booties and footed pajamas
We went and saw Santa. And then rode the carousal.
I attempted to make these
They looked like this when I pulled them out of the oven
And looked like this when I let them cool and tried to take them out of the muffin pan
And my kids fought the entire time while making them.
And I leave you with what is like living with a very opinionated, hard headed 3-year old....
