Weekly Happenings: We got to do a few fun holiday things this past week. Last Saturday we went out to the zoo to see the Christmas decorations. It was fun seeing how excited the kids got. I think that’s what makes the holidays for me as an adult. Then on Monday, we went to Bass Pro’s Shop to see their holiday fun and to get our picture taken with Santa. Abigail was NOT going to be left with Santa (even with Joseph there), so we all stayed in the picture so that she’d be comfortable-ish. She still was apprehensive, but she didn’t cry (if that had happened, we totally wouldn’t have left her on his lap). She really liked the plush reindeer that she got after taking the picture (I kinda wish they’d given her that first…she might have been a bit happier for the actual picture, haha). Both she and Joseph loved playing with all the toys in the kid area afterward. It was a pretty fun night.
The Weekly Weather: It’s been a mix of colder weather and then milder weather. I must say, November might be my favorite month for weather in South Texas.
What Paul’s Been Up To: He helped decorate the neighborhood entrances, he’s been busy at work (getting some overtime in), and the like.
What Sarah’s Been Up To: Errand-running, play-dating, baby-snuggling…
What Joseph’s Been Up To: His class went on a field trip to the Doseum, which is the children’s museum downtown. He had a ton of fun and then was excited that they’d get to go to a nearby park to eat lunch afterward. It was a really fun day for him.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s popping more words out (she’s pretty good at repeating stuff if I say it slowly enough). She understands A LOT of what we say, and can follow simple commands. It’s crazy to think that she will be two in just a few weeks!
