The past couple months have flown by, probably because there was so much stuff going on.
|I'm Andrew's Hand!|
First up, Thanksgiving. My mom came into town and the kids loved playing with her. Jonathan did a great job with Thanksgiving dinner and we were lucky to have some dear friends join us for dinner as well. Andrew enjoyed making forts and hiding from all the food.
We jumped from Thanksgiving straight into Christmas preparations. Grandma was really good at setting up the show village.
And the tree.
The kids promptly started their extensive Christmas gift list.
We had work Christmas parties...
|Andrew requested a bat, aka a black butterfly.|
Next was Jonathan's birthday.
And ice skating.
Girl Scout cookie season began...
Batman followed us around the mall...
And the kids celebrated several snowfalls!
Andrew went to a gym birthday party and, for the first time, he didn't hate it.
Allison had her first piano recital. She did such a good job getting up in front of everyone and playing.
Jonathan and I discovered an indoor play space that has a bar. The genius of this has blown me away.
Christmas was fantastic. The kids got lots of amazing gifts and we hosted dinner with friends.
A couple days later, Gama and Papa came. The kids rejoiced.
Then came my birthday, with Andrew stealing all the Oreos off my cake.
We celebrated New Years at some friends' house. We almost made it to 10pm before Andrew started begging to go home.
The kids went back to school only to have a cold snap and snow fall cancel school. They weren't too sad about it.
Andrew broke a personal record and slept until 9am this morning.
For now, we are huddling indoors and planning our summer plans. I'm sure that will be here before we know it.
