...had our ornament exchange...made a SIMPLE craft: on 1 inch pieces of craft paper, write a memory of the year. Then stuff it into a clear glass ornament....and had our obligatory picture in front of the Christmas tree taken
Um yeah, trying to take a good picture of the 3 of them was not successful!The kids favorite part was coloring in front of the turtles
Our first go around the rink we held hands. I was paranoid of him falling and hitting his head. Let me tell you, the rink is MUCH bigger when you are holding onto a 2year old's hand who goes negative 5 mph! It seemed never ending, but we got around. On our second go around, I reached for his hand and he tells me, "No. I can go by myself. I no need to hold your hand." Ouch. Another heartbreaking moment. Doesn't a little boy always need to hold his Mama's hand?Oh, but he could hold Kaitlyn's hand. How adorable are they?
The skating crew: me, Jaxon, Kaitlyn (still holding hands), Abigail, Becky, Shannon (another college friend), & Samantha (Samantha's identical twin sister, Anabel, was home sick)
Our fun with friends ended on New Year's Eve with the Bunches and the Kochvars. My camera was acting weird so I didn't need many pictures. But Jaxon was awake to ring in the new year! And even though it went against my sleep schedule, my heart couldn't have been happier to have Jaxon sitting on my lap and Brian next to me when the ball dropped.
Playing with 2 of the Bunchkins, at a reasonable hour.
Oh, you thought that was it? Well, one more thing. On New Year's Day Jaxon discovered that he could fly down Abu & Lola's driveway in his new firetruck!
Look at the pure joy on his face!
