Toddler of the Month





Leo is toddler of the month for February at his school. Here is the wall of photos and the "about me" sheet that were put up in his room. Super cute!

Christmas (a little delayed)

Notice it's still dark out, and about to open the gifts Santa brought.

Santa brought Leo a lion...


and Dru a scooter!!

The family at my parent's house.
Christmas was definitely fun this year. Dru really was getting excited about the whole process. She still loves the Christmas lights and we have now started an annual tradition of taking a Christmas lights tour as a family. They were in their Santa jammies and had a drink and a snack. Dru didn't get a nap that day so she slept through most of it. We made the decision to finally turn Leo's car seat to face forward so he could see better. He was thrilled so he was looking at everything.
Christmas Eve through Christmas night is a whirlwind of events. We spent Christmas Eve at Grandma Marlys and Grandpa Bob's. In the morning we opened presents at home then went to Grandma Sue and Grandpa John's for breakfast & presents with the Schultz's, then dinner with & activities with more family. The kids were exhausted as we were as well. But of course that didn't stop us from getting up early to shop the next day! I know, crazy.
We look forward to this Christmas as they are even more aware of what Christmas means and we can begin teaching them about the joy of giving as well as recieving.
