daily moments – week 52

We didn’t get to see Santa this year but we got to experience Santaland. We also went Christmas caroling and made cookies. Its been so much fun doing Christmas with the kids as they get older.

Here’s our week. . .

Carousel at Santaland.



The crane at the ball pit. We have one of these in the backyard and its Jonas’ favorite spot.img_3305

This makes my heart happy. Only one more year to dress him in knee socks. Also he throwing his shoe here.img_20161218_085855096

Candied kumquats. Last week I received a large bowl of these. I decided to make them into this sweet treat. They are so good.img_20161219_120153618

Silas found the nail polish. He was upset when he realized he couldn’t remove the polish with water. img_20161219_155001006
