The big boys received rollerblades for Christmas and fortunately we were able to get outside so they could try them out. . . oh what fun! They've been wearing them inside the house and practicing their balancing, and they're doing pretty good. A couple of tumbles but then right back up and at it again. Now in addition to all of our hiking and biking we can add rollerblading. . . oh the adventures that await us!

DS#3 and his creation. . . the Dino. We read a story and then we got out the molding clay and they created their version of what we read. I love the attention to detail. . .notice the feet, eyes, and tail. In the 1st pic you'll notice the Dino on the left, see the spines and the shaped body? Their attention to detail is just amazing to me. . .pretty impressive, huh? They all love their clay, they will literally play for several hours with it.

Christmas Eve is such a special time and I so enjoy our family tradition. We sit around the tree, sing some songs, read the Christmas story from the Bible and then they open 1 gift. . . which is their 'Christmas jammies'. Then they get dressed and we make a big batch of hot cocoa and we all load up and drive around and look at all the beautiful lights and decorations. It's so fun to watch their faces as they witness and take in all the beauty and listen to their excited voices. . . I just love it.

While the big boys were hooping it up, littlest man was indulging in a treat all of his own. . . chocolate chip cookies. Hmmm. . . who had the most fun? You decide! lol

DS1, 2 & 3 celebrated their 5th bday! Wow, unbelievable! They had a super time opening gifts and then they were outside playing with their super soakers before 8:30am. We had a fabulous day and closed it out with a visit to Cold Stone where, as you can see in the last photo, they thoroughly enjoyed themselves! (Notice my niece giving her Mommy quite 'the look'! lol)
