8 am christmas morning. Ezra still has blankie in tow and fingers in mouth.
So i realize that i have not blogged for so long that i have some major catching up to do. not that anyone is really interested in our christmas, new years, and january, but i like to at least have it documented. Its really difficult to blog when your camera is not working---and then our computer decided to go crazy because it was too full with videos and pictures. So even though we already have an external hard-drive, and everything---we still had too much on the computer. so i had to give up blogging for a while---it just wasnt working.
this picture says a lot. Ezra got all the boys toys a boy could ask for today. Legos, star wars figurine set ( on sale ---thanks Target) , cars, and Geo Tracks.
book of mormon figurines. We never get him super hero stuff. so i figured we would start collecting these .
Ruby gave ezra "bug marbles" for christmas. they are like jewelry for boys. Tiny bugs ( real ones) encapsulated in plastic marble.
Ruby got a bunch of dollhouse furniture to put in the cardboard dollhouse we made :)
Lucille gets her very own barbie of snow white.
Ruby got a myriad of American girl Accessories. she got her first ever american girl dolls and baking set. I can see what all the fuss is about with those American Girl Dolls . they are so cute and well made. all the accessories are truly miniatures of fine made accessories.
more legos. i think he likes them
So for our New years tradition--Jason started a little thing that is a medals ceremony to celebrate each child and their abilities/personality traits of the year.
I thought it was really cute that he did that. he stayed up late making these medals out of tin foil and cut cardboard. and then labeled each one. each child got three. here are the names of them.
RUBY: halfblood award ( for finishing 1st novel) Dancing boogie girl, taekwondo volcano kicker. EZRA: Puzzle master , Mr Fix it, Taekwondo volcano puncher. LUCILLE: meek as a lamb obedience champ, best napper, hug artist.
Here they are at the award ceremony. very proud of their yearly accomplishments.
do a dance to celebrate!
Little friends at pump it up.
yes, thats my son. head first. it will be amazing if he makes it to college. he is always using his head as his first defense.
it was all woody and buzz themed. apparently costco didnt want to put a rocket on there. so we went with the woody theme.
my kids have played with this Batman batcave for hours. who knew it would be a family favorite. Ezra still dreams about saving up all his allowance so he can buy all the villains that go to it. hes so funny.
SO THERE YOU HAVE IT. i finally got caught up blogging about all the kids and family stuff.
now----stay tuned---im going to be putting up some awesome posts of jewelry, a new valentines line, and my crafty crafty projects as of late. and also---im really trying to get a post about favorite/life changing items of the last six months! send me an email if you have any thoughts about that time.
till next time!!
