Trying to learn some embroidery + being really cheap when it comes to Christmas gifts= this gift for my mom.
Instructions for these have been floating around the internets and I thought Avery should have one for dance class. I think it turned out cute.
There were some changes here on Atlantic Avenue as well. I cut the girls' hair this week and it's a big change; I love it.
Avery after. Not quite as dramatic as Ashby's but I like it a lot.
The weather also changed and finally gave us some good snow. Roger has been working Saturday's so I sent the girls out by themselves the other day and they made this little snowman all by themselves. I think it's so cute.
And yes Luke does still live here. He's changing everyday too. He can roll over now, about two weeks ago he did for the first time and I was completely shocked. He refuses to roll over anymore, but I know he can do it. He has found his toes and pulls his socks off every minute. He can laugh now too. It's almost a full blown belly laugh and I can't get enough of it. I haven't gotten any good pictures of him lately but that's my mission this week.

(cherry pie courtesy of Roger, nice work huh?)
Christmas Eve pajama pants to wear along with rain boots for spreading reindeer food outside before bed,
presents to open,
weddings to celebrate (Roger's little sister Karen and her husband Jared, yeah!),
dancing to do (cousin Kyle and Ashby),
We had such a great holiday filled with so many fun things. We slept in until 10 almost every morning. The girls had so much fun swimming at the hotel in Ohio with their cousins while we were there for the wedding. Roger and I stayed up way too late with my in laws, but didn't regret a minute of it. The only thing I could have wished for during this Christmas break was to see my family. I love you guys and I miss you a lot. I was so sad to go back to real life this week. Real life means walking Ashby to school in the bitter cold and losing Roger to busy season. But I can't help but think about how blessed we are and how fortunate we are to begin another year in good health. I am looking forward to this year as a chance to improve our lives a little each day.
