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.
And of course Brooks found the Lincoln Logs.
Decorating cookies with friends. Jonas has taken to closing his eyes during photos.
Christmas morning. The boys got a huge Lego set.
Jonas got several planes and trains.
And Brooks got Silas a “military” paper plane. He loved it!
This makes my heart happy. Only one more year to dress him in knee socks. Also he throwing his shoe here.
Candied kumquats. Last week I received a large bowl of these. I decided to make them into this sweet treat. They are so good.
Silas found the nail polish. He was upset when he realized he couldn’t remove the polish with water.
Christmas Party #1.
Christmas Party #2.
One of my favorite Christmas books.
Serious stink eye, but he was so handsome.
Christmas Party #3. This was the best of the four pictures I took of him.
First day of Christmas break.
My new favorite for the kids.
Jonas showing off his prize.
A British friend gave our family crackers for Christmas. The boys were so pumped about opening them. They each got a prize or a musical instrument.
A pirate ship vignette. I love my boys so much.
Have a Merry Christmas!
