I know December happened a long time ago, but we’ve been without a computer for a while and I finally want to document all the fun things we did.
Nathan had his Preschool Program and he was so cute and did a great job participating and paying attention (mostly).
We had a packed December again this year,
We invited friends over for a cookie decorating party,
we decorated the Christmas tree,
We did some fun Christmas crafts and activities,
we ate a lot of snowman and tree shaped foods,
and I tried desperately to get a good picture of both my kids. It didn’t work.
Once again, this year Ryan and I went to the Washington Federal holiday party in Seattle and had a ton of fun. We started the day with a trip to the temple, then headed downtown for lunch at the Cheesecake Factory and some shopping, and finished the night off with a great party.
We attended our Ward Christmas party and our kids wanted nothing to do with Santa. Emma wouldn’t even go near him, and you can see that Nathan only did it for the candy cane.
They felt a lot better about the Nativity.
We got snow at our house the week before Christmas. When Emma looked out the window and saw all the snow, she yelled, “cheese!” I think she was pretty confused, but she liked it.
At almost 20 months, EMMA LEARNED TO WALK!
Ryan celebrated his 31st birthday on Christmas Eve. We had family over that evening for cheesecake and games.
Afterwards, we hung our stockings and left cookies for Santa.
Then the kids had a sleepover while we got ready for the morning.
