The middle of December wasn't nearly as full of festivities as the beginning of the month...
We started a couple new traditions this year. The first one is one we did a couple years ago but with Singapore we have missed it the last couple of years. We popped popcorn, changed into pjs and headed to out to see Christmas lights. This year we headed to a large display set to music in a nearby town. There was a bit of a line up outside of the neighborhood and they had Santa and and elf out there saying hi to all the kids waiting in cars and handing out candy canes. The kids loved that. And the light show was good too.
A rare moment of calm from Declan.
Declan loves to put his Hawkeye hat on and then demand that we all watch him play football...or soccer...or run super fast. It's kind of cute, but eventually the demands to cheer for him get a little old haha.
And some pictures from the event.
We took the kids to see Trolls. Emry was mostly cooperative and the kids loved the show.
This picture perfectly illustrates life right now.
My mom traveled to Texas to visit my sister so we had my dad over for dinner one night. When Papa is around, wrestling is always necessary.
There was a jump on the sledding hill and Brennan let Tatum try it. The first time she missed it and the second time she went off it and the landed on her face. She came home with a bit of a bruise but it healed quickly and she didn't seem too emotionally scarred.
