Merry Christmas, part one

I titled this "Part One" in hopes that I will actually make a "Part Two".  Life has gotten so busy that the blog has fallen by the wayside.  Some days I think we have gotten too busy, but when I think about the things we are doing...there isn't a thing I would change.  Through the various activities and running around we do, the kids are surrounded by some amazing friends and adults who are teaching them some great things!

Basketball has ended for charli, which she misses, and makes her excited for the next season to start!  She loves to learn how to play new sports.  She recently tested and received her green belt in taekwondo, so she moves up to the advanced class.

Harper will enjoy two weeks off of school to play at his daycare for the entire day!  They get so excited to get big enough to go to school...and at the same time miss what they have at daycare.  We are blessed that our kids have loved their daycare so much - but it makes it hard for them to be away!
Gingerbread villages this year!
