The Polar Express

Right before Christmas we took the kids on the Polar Express train ride. Kids are encouraged to wear their pajamas. It was cute and fun.As we were walking to the train there was snow waiting for us and lots of trees.
Walking to the train with Papa.On the train.
Aaron love riding the train. I see many more train rides in our future. The Polar Express part of it (the shows) he didn't notice. He was just so excited to be on a moving train!
Abby did great. I don't think she realized she was on a train, but she had a good time.

Santa came on board and gave the kids bells. They both loved those!

Afterwards Aaron found some rocks!
Fun time!

Christmas Pictures

In October we had our Christmas pictures taken. I haven't put most of them on here yet because I was waiting until our Christmas cards went out. I am also going to put a picture of our card on here so that I have it.The card only had three pictures on it.
We used this one of Abby
This was the one we used of Aaron. I love it, but it's also got a story behind it. During our very first set of pictures Aaron took off an climbed a hill. This was the picture when he got to the top. And he was FILTHY. Thankfully Jory had suggested we bring an extra pair of pants. And we got a great picture to boot!

This is the family picture we used.
We have a few more that I will post tomorrow.
Merry Christmas!

Aaron's Christmas Party

On the last day of school before break Aaron's class had a Christmas Breakfast. The parents got to stay for a little bit and it was so fun.
The kids performed for us. It was precious and we also got to see a little bit into what their morning looks like.

They all had jingle bells to shake while they sang the song to us!
Aaron got so into the jingling of the bells!
Sweet Mary and Aaron enjoying a bagel breakfast!

Abby got to hang around, too! So much fun for a little one!

Our Week

These are mostly pictures of Aaron for no apparent reason. It's just how it worked out.
Monday December 12, 2011
Jory and I decided to have a Date Night 'In', so the kids and I headed to Central Market to get some yummy stuff for dinner.
Tuesday December 13, 2011
Aaron's class won a contest at school and got a Popsicle as a reward. I absolutely made him eat his outside. It was 50 degrees and kind of drizzly. Yay for Mom of the Year.
Wednesday December 14, 2011
Dee came and brought Christmas goodies!
Including a Frosty the Snowman book that sings the song!
Aaron convinced her to play in the drizzle and the mud.
That day Jory got home early so he went to swim with us. Normally I am in the water with Aaron, but it was so nice to sit on the sidelines. You can really see his skills when you are not up on him and it was great to see Jory's reactions. He hasn't seen Aaron swim since summer and he was so impressed. After swim we took a drive and saw some Christmas lights.

Aaron had his Christmas party at school so Abby and I got to stay for a little bit. It was fun to watch him play and interact as the other children showed up.

10 Months Old

Happy Birthday, Abby! I can't believe you are ten months old! It is unreal to me that almost a year has gone by since we were blessed with you.
You are sweet, funny and full of life. You are 'talking' quite a bit now and you are full of claps and cheers!
You wear a Size 3 diaper and 18 month clothes. You sleep 12 hours at night and you take two naps during the day totaling about four hours.
You eat three meals a day and nurse with each of them. You also nurse before you go to bed at night and one other time during the day. You love vegetables, but you eat almost everything (you don't like raspberries). You are a good eater.
We love you, Abigail Elizabeth!
