Lake Farm Park is a yearly tradition that we have done the past few years with Jim's FOP. Some of the activities that we do there are a horse drawn carriage ride to see Christmas lights, pictures with santa and making wooden toys. Below are the kids with the "elves" making and painting their toys.
I just love this picture of Abbey and Caleb. The kids are always coming up with new ways to play and keep busy around the house. Abbey is like a second mommy to Caleb. Just like me, she kisses his cheeks as much as he'll let her :).
We made lots of cut out Christmas cookies this year! It's pretty cool how as the kids get older they are a huge help and not just mess makers!!
We had 2 Christmas parties this year. One was with kids from Jacob and Abbey's school and the other was with women from our church. Both were a blast! Above the kids are doing freeze dance to Christmas music :). The night also included crafts for the kids to take home, snacks and free play.
The women's party was a great time for all. We had tons of food, played some fun games, and talked and laughed into the wee hours of the night (the last couple ladies left at 2:30am!)
And a couple pics of the kids opening up their presents on Christmas morning. Jacob got a bb gun this year. I know Jim and him will be very careful as they use it, but you can be sure I will be keeping myself busy with something else inside the house :/!
We haven't had too much snow yet this winter, but we've gotten out to play in it as much as possible.
Micah is 4!! We celebrated his birthday with family at Chuck E Cheese in early January. We ate pizza, played games and did cake and presents. His police costume was his favorite gift :).
We went up a few nights ago and visited daddy at work. Micah was thrilled to be his "partner" for a bit!
