How can time go so fast?
She was delighted to get a outfit for her our generation doll. I was delighted that she wanted something that wasn't boyish! :)
Her cake... That's her " I am feeling a bit embarrassed look".
28 days later on the 30th is Shane's birthday. He turned 9!
His birthday was over the Thanksgiving vacation. So there was no school on Friday but on Monday I took cupcakes to school for his class. For some reason our children think its great fun to have goodies brought on for just their class!
Enter cut out cookies for Christmas. I baked them while they were at school & had them all ready for icing when they got home. It worked out great!
Best of all is they actually like eating them! Some holiday goodies they turn their noses up at. And whats the use making it if its just gonna sit here!
Micah asked to wait to open presents till Christmas morning. I think this was a first since he would have been just one year old. On Christmas eve the others were asking to open just one present.:) So they did & the rest was saved till Christmas morning.
We had a wonderful morning, reading the gospel account of the birth of Christ. Visualising what it may have been like to be in Bethlehem at that time... Sipping coffee... Relaxing & just enjoying being with our growing family!
At lunch time Marv's, Sean's, Clint's & of course Sky came over for lunch & spent the rest of the day here. We got good use out of our newly expanded living area!
The children had over 2 weeks off from school, it was fun having all of them home again for such a long time. Today was back to reality... They had their first day back at school for 2014. For the most part they were ready to get back on schedule.
Cole is counting the days till that big 5th birthday! February 4th can't come soon enough for him. I can't wait either that will be just 12 days from my due date. And February 16 can't come too fast for me!
We are all really getting excited to meet this dear little boy. :)
