Ruby started Winter Break this week! We've been having a fun time at home, and of course traveling for Christmas to see our family.
Miles started army crawling!
Reid got a weird rash, but I think he's on the mend.
Ruby's class earned 10 Tiger Paws, so they got to have a board game day with their Big Buddies. She brought Sequence for kids to play and had a blast.
Guess who made these?? (there was one for Miles too) She's so cute.
We made a double crane and Reid was so excited.
He loves his brown blanket.
Almost Christmas! We've been burning this Advent candle we got from church every day.
He's on the move.
We have this tiny little red rose blooming outside, and it frosted. The kids thought it was so cool and kept saying "Jack Frost came! He was busy and got everywhere!"
We went to the doctor for Reid's rash and decided to get all three kids the flu shot, just to be safer this year. Reid didn't even flinch, Ruby was pretty scared but didn't cry, and Miles made a very sad face but ended up not crying either. Brave kids!
She sure loves him.
He loves his toy basket.
Doing a Christmas break workout with Mom. She loves jumping jacks.
We made sugar cookies and these amazing molasses ones from my Bon Appetit magazine.
The kids had so much fun cutting them out and frosting them.
It was so cute.
Watching his siblings dance away.
Matching Star Wars jammies!!! They love them.
On Friday night we watched the Polar Express, then all slept in the living room.
They loved it.
Then on Saturday morning we opened some of our gifts so we wouldn't have to take them all down. Reid got some clothes, a new blue water bottle, and Lincoln Logs.
Ruby got some books, clothes, and a snow globe.
Miles loved the paper!
Her snow globe... sadly it shattered that evening. :(
Then Ruby and I headed downtown to watch the Nutcracker ballet at the Keller Auditorium. She got a booster, which helped. :) We got some free tickets from one of Patty's friends who is in the orchestra. It was amazing!
Ruby sat with us in church on Sunday and loved the candle part.
Then we walked outside and it was snow/sleeting!
We drove very carefully all the way down to Medford that afternoon.
We ate Christmas Eve dinner at Cindy's house. Ruby loves the Rubix cube.
Heading to bed on Christmas Eve.
On Christmas morning our kids got up at 5:30! Andy got up with them and they waited for everyone else to get up. They did their stockings and our gifts to each other.
It was fun!
Miles got a little teether toy.
Ruby got a new real Bible.
Mmmmmmm.... feels great on his 8 (!!!!!) teeth.
Reid got a new tractor book.
Making a gun out of the Tinker Toys.
We had a low key morning and Andy and I did his puzzle that Ruby gave him.
Andy had to lay in between Miles and the Christmas tree so he wouldn't try to eat it.
He woke up from his nap and cried these big crocodile tears.
The Halls all came at around 2pm. We tried to take a family picture using Dad's new drone, and it was hilarious!
Ruby loved playing with the girls.
Reid got a new excavator and loves it.
Watching a Christmas movie before bed.
She loves Lia.
