This month went really quick! Samantha had school, Nicholas continued with speech therapy and Jim is still on nights. We had Christmas shopping to finish up, wrapping, and packing for Chicago since Jim got a week off for Christmas this year :) We had a bunch of snow in the beginning of the month. Nicholas was not very fond of it. He kept taking his gloves off and his hands were freezing! He did like making snow angels like Samantha and kicking the ball. I think it took longer to get him dressed than he played out there. Oh well! Maybe if we get some heavier snow they can build a snowman or a fort with daddy!
This year we took the kids on a drive for to the Wayne County Christmas lights! It was so much fun listening to the kids oooh & ahhh over all the different lights. At the end we got to see one of Santa's reindeer and we got to see Santa! The kids are so much fun at this age. Buddy, our elf, came again this year and brought the kids ornaments from Disney. Samantha got Cinderella's slipper and Nicholas got Woody & Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story. They both loved them and couldn't wait to put them on the tree!
We were able to travel to Chicago this year and spend Christmas with our families. It was so much fun seeing the kids open up all their gifts and it was fun seeing the kids excited about Santa. Nicholas wasn't sure at all about opening the presents but once he got the hang of it he had so much fun! We got to see most of our extended families during the holidays but I'm sure there were some that we missed.
We headed back to Michigan after Jim's birthday and celebrated Christmas just the 4 of us when we got home too. Samantha was so excited that Santa came to Michigan too! Jim had to work New Year's Eve so the kids and I watched movies and were in bed before midnight. It was pretty uneventful! Here's to a great 2014!
