Weekly Happenings: The most fun event of this past week was getting to celebrate Christmas as a family. It was so fun to see the kids enjoying their presents and it was a great opportunity to take some time to reflect on the gift of our Savior and His birth. I also took the kids to the zoo for some extra fun things (a carousel ride and a ride on the zoo train which had been transformed into the “Holiday Express”).
The Weekly Weather: It’s actually been acting like winter! I think yesterday was the only day that we didn’t wear jackets, and even then, it was still only in the 60s. It’s been nice. 🙂
What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been enjoying this break from school. He has been soaking up family time, too, which has been really fun.
What Sarah’s Been Up To: Not much, other than keeping the kids occupied (especially Joseph, during the break from school).
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He’s been playing with some of his Christmas presents (a magic set and a new video game) and has also enjoyed getting some extra play time with Abigail.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: It’s more like what Abigail’s been IN to…she’s figured out that crawling on hands and knees is A LOT faster than the “low crawl” and she is FAST. I’ve resurrected the title “Commando Destructo” and have given it to her, haha. She had her one-year check up and is floating just under 20 lbs. and is almost 30 inches long.
