We kicked off the month of December with our annual trip to Alexandria, VA, for the Scottish Christmas walk - the guys were all excited to get their kilts out once again. My brother couldn't make it this year, but the rest of us had a great time!
The boys and I made a trip over to my sisters house for some ornament painting.
The little guys had a great time decorating their salt dough ornaments, and Jack has proudly hung his on the tree where he points to them almost every day and tells me about how he painted them with his 'best friend, Emerson'.
My nephew Emerson is such a little thinker and very meticulous with his artwork. He was totally stressed that Jack is more of a free-form painter (to put it nicely).
Last Friday we rang bells for Salvation Army at the mall, which was a really cool thing to do as a family, one I would like to make a yearly tradition. I was worried that Luke might get too cold, so I wore him under one of Matt's jackets, all snuggled up next to me. He was warm...but it was definitely not the most flattering outfit I have ever put together.
Can we all take note of Jack in the above picture? Yeah...are you surprised to see that he is cavorting about? Me either.
Last weekend we had a Christmas party, where we also managed to snap a cute family picture!
While all of the above activities make us sound really busy, we have been able to have a lot of time for just the four of us to enjoy this season as well, which has been really wonderful. I hope you are all having a wonderful Holiday season as well!
