Keeping busy on Winter Break

Noah got fingerpaints for Christmas.

Hey, my little hand makes great tulips!

Bathroom decorations??

A last photo with the decorations.

{he broke them 2 days after getting them and had to have the frames replaced :( }

Mommy teaches Noah to write our last name.
Good use of winter break.

Christmas Highlights

The best daddy in the world bought Mya and Noah fold up scooters for Christmas
AND let them try them out in the house!

Mya was happy to get her art supplies.

Little boys need at least one motor vehicle for Christmas. Noah also got a pickup/boat set including fish and men.
 We had a great Christmas. Charlie, Donna and Jenny {or is it Jennee or Jennie ;) } came over to help us eat some turkey and socialiaze for a bit. Of course, they brought gifts for the littles--Panda Pillow Pet and Tron motorcycle. We had fun hanging out.

"Rockin' in the Kitchen" Aprons special ordered from Red Thread Stiches. Way cute!

Sporting Ordinary Hero clothing from Here:
 Christmas day brought tons of gifts being opened--early rising little ones got to open stuff from mom and dad. The big ones all opened stuff at 10:30. It was the first time ever that we all slept in the same house. Everyone enjoyed opening the crazy stuff that this mom got them--aprons, tools, vacuums, thermos, socks, single serving shake makers and the like.  Mom tried to support adoption with some of her purchases.

At noon, Linda, Jim, Ben and his daughter came over. The kids had so much fun--indoors and out.  Ben's girl cried pretty hard when it was time to come in. Who would want to leave all that fun!?!

A Ride on the Sled.

A hole dug by Aaron.
Inspecting the construction of the "cave".


Guess I could just keep posting but I think I'd better stop. We had a wonderful holiday. It was really great to have ALL the kids home at one time. I hope this is something we can keep going forever!
