Wow, I haven't blogged in over a month. That's not because we haven't had anything exciting happen, it's because we have been busy with life.
I can't miss documenting Christmas.
So proud of this boy! He rocked his preschool Christmas performance. What a difference from last year's anxiety filled tear fest. Mama was the one in tears this year knowing it's our little man's last preschool Christmas performance. Next year he's on the kindergarten.
The first day of the kids' school break a friend and I gathered our crazies and took the train uptown for some festivities.
We saw giant Nutcrackers, The Singing Bears and a huge gingerbread display at the Ritz.
The next day we made our way to another fancy hotel for their gingergbread village.
Christmas day was great compared to last year when Nana got hurt and ended up needing emergency ankle surgery. As sad as it is, I must admit I kept waiting for the ball to drop and for someone to get sick or hurt as it seems that happens every year. Thankfully, Brooks had a minor fever but, it didn't keep him down and we had a great time celebrating.
We had much quieter Christmas this year as Nana and Poppie were the only ones who came to visit. We loved it but, sure did miss having little cousin Lillie with us this year.
My girls sure did look beautiful at Christmas Eve service.
Kyrie loved her secret gift from daddy on Christmas eve! New crutches for her favorite pretend play game....broken leg.
The traditonal "Twas the Night Before Christmas" reading with Poppie.
Poor sleeping beauty was woken by brother and sister to tell her Santa came. I agree Olivia. 5:30 am is waaay too early!
Pretty sure this was Nana's favorite gift.
After all of the Christmas cookies we needed some exercise.
Mommy and daddy's favorite gift was a night away in the mountains for a little skiing. We didn't mind that it was 50 degrees and raining.
