We’re Getting Closer!

Weekly Happenings: It’s hard to believe that Christmas is less than two weeks away. We’ve mostly been just chilling around the house and relaxing. Today we decided to hop over to the zoo since the weather was great for it.

The Weekly Weather: It started off warm, but we had a cold front move in that dropped the temperature thirty degrees overnight. It warmed up progressively from there and this weekend has been beautiful.

What Paul’s Been Up To: He was busy with his calling for church this week as well as at work. I’m glad he brought up going to the zoo today because I was thinking we’d have a lazy day at home…going to the zoo was a much better idea because we got out in the fresh air.

What Sarah’s Been Up To: Not too much on my end. Just ferrying kids around and teaching piano as usual.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He’s been busy at school. It’s hard to believe that six months from now he’ll be done with second grade.

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s been talking up a storm. Some of it I really have to pay attention to in order to understand, but a lot of it is really clear. The other day she referred to Fruit Loops as “color-Os” and I’m not sure I can ever call them Fruit Loops again. Yesterday I asked her what she wanted for breakfast and she said, “I have choc-o-laaaaaate?????” in this really sweet voice. I told her breakfast first and THEN chocolate (she likes my dark chocolate Hershey’s kisses). She conceded. 🙂

This Week in Pictures:

All dressed up for church in their Christmas outfits (I like to get as much use out of them as possible, haha).
Of course she needed a picture with her snowflake wand.
All layered up for a chilly walk to school. She loves her zebra jacket and sparkly pink leopard-spotted boots.
Apparently the less than a mile ride to school was just long enough for her to zonk out.
I love when he reads to her.
They really do have a sweet relationship.
After a while he wanted one of his books.
She loves to sit on top of the dryer and drop clothes into the washer.
The last full moon of the decade!
Cold mornings mean cuddle-time with a cozy blanket.
One of my favorite sights.
Saying hello to the bear at the zoo.
She was really into it.
Climbing on the hippos.
Munching on popcorn.
She was trying to get up to where Joseph was, but it was too slippery.
This was such a peaceful spot!
Getting a good look at the giraffe.
It kept making these funny faces which she loved.
Joseph and the giraffe.
Checking out the elephants.
Snugglin’ with Momma and checking out ornaments.
I lovingly call this her rock star outfit.
Abigail’s nursery leaders made her an ornament with her picture on it. She loved it so much that she had to put it on her tree right away.
Joseph got a block with a nativity scene on it from his Primary leaders. I love how much thought went into the gifts they got from their leaders.
