Almost caught a smile!
Garrick and I have decided to try and make it a priority to be home on Christmas morning with our kids- we love our families a LOT and they are more than welcome to come to our house for the festivities but we just want to let them have Santa come and to go out and do something simple like skiing, hiking or sledding as a family. Which is just what we did! Peter got a new dump truck that he can take apart- with a little help, an alphabet apple and a bus. Emi got Sophie the Giraffe. We also got as a family a bag of new books that we have been picking one or two out of all week and reading together- we are going to try and continue that tradition because we all like it a lot! The book that is one of the favs is Who's There? which is really fun becuase you get to use a flashlight- and all kids like flashlights- to shine images on the walls as you read the story. We may have to get a new one each year!
