December is my favorite month of the year! Parties, lights, Christmas trees, shopping, wonderful winter weather, family, friends, stories, . . .
I love every day of it!
This December has been busy!
Here's our month so far, in pictures.
Ryan is up and walking now and I'm so excited for him but a little depressed that my baby is now a toddler. He looks adorable walking, or stumbling, around the house. He and Simon are thoroughly enjoying their new sandbox. They spend a lot of time outside playing and fighting and playing some more. Even though there are 3 dumptrucks in the sandbox they always end up fighting over the same one. :)
We finally got out our Christmas decor and with lots of help from Jeremiah and the boys, we "decked the halls".
Simon got to help put the decorations on the tree and we left almost all of the glass ornaments in the box this year to save them from little hands knocking them down.
This is Simon's section of the tree, after we had moved some of the ornaments. He bunched them all together on two or three branches. Also, take a look at Jeremiah's Santa ornament. In his hand he's carrying. . . Frosty's head! ahh! kind of gruesome, but funny, in a Tim Burton kind of way.
We also threw and impromtu cookie decorating party with Karissa and Cabrena. Simon ate more sprinkles than made it onto the cookies. He made some beautiful sprinkle-covered trains!
