So the Holidays at our house were busier than I anticipated. You see, I still am in the thought process of the Holidays meaning lots of down time, relaxing, catching up on projects, etc. Well, as I told a friend yesterday, I think those days are over now that we have kids. Three and four year olds don’t really like to sit around! And if we did plan to sit around…they would drive me insane with their
fighting picking at each other, so we might as well get out and do fun stuff together. So, here are some of the fun things we did in the last few weeks (click on the pic for a larger view):
We went ice-skating. The kids loved it!
We went to Celebration and played in the fake snow. We do that every year…it’s really fun. We also go to see Santa, but this year they increased the price to $21 for a picture with him!
This is Nick tuckered with his sucker after playing in the snow.
Then after Christmas we went Camping. That’s right…I went camping! We have never been together as a family, and I pretty much said that I would never go. So, this was a big deal. I must say…it was really fun! I will definitely bring an air mattress next time, as sleeping on the hard ground was not fun at all! One fun thing was sitting around the campfire. I told Natalie that people usually tell ghost stories. So, in the interest of not freaking the kids out, we told simple mild stories and didn’t even mention a ghost. But Natalie, in every story, she would say something like, “Then the ghost would come and eat them all up!” It was hilarious!
So that was our Holiday! It was lots of fun! What all did you do for the Holidays?
