Christmas Break started out with snow--HOORAY!! The kids loved it, and were outside by 7:20am. Lily couldn't stay out so long--she gets cold fast. But Oliver--he was outside much of the day.
They also had fun playing together: legos, crafts, helping me with cookies, even Santa showed up! And Lily's answer to the question, "What do you want for Christmas?" "An ipad." EVERYTIME. Thankfully, she was happy with the non-ipad gifts she DID receive!
We had our family Christmas at home with my parents on Saturday before we left for Chicago and Indiana. We had so much fun: a fancy dinner, the kids quoted a portion of Luke 2 they had learned, and then we opened gifts!
Afterwards, Oliver was able to make a microphone stand with some PVC building pieces he got, which was a perfect opportunity to sing Christmas carols with the guitar, and Lily on the mic.
The next day, we took off for Courtney's place in KC!
