We took the kids bowling for the first time. It was SO FUN! Ezra was the BEST cheerleader anyone could ever want. The kids had a blast and the parents did, too.
Bella and I got to go on a really fun mother-daughter date last week. 4 little girls and their moms all went out to lunch and a movie. The girls had a gift exchange at lunch and then we all went and watched Tangled. The movie was so cute and it had the moms and the kids alike all laughing. I so enjoy our little mother daughter dates.
Santa came to our local library. Ez hopped right on his lap and requested a zhu zhu pet.
Then Cali got on Santa's lap and was fascinated with his beard. I thought maybe she would protest being on Jolly Old Saint Nick's lap but no, not at all. She was enthralled in the experience.
Bella, on the other hand, has NEVER liked being on Santa Claus's lap. She wanted her siblings to go up with her but they ended up just standing nearby and Bella was forced to go it alone with him. She survived. She asked Santa for a Razor scooter.
Bella and Ezra's friend Lyddia was also at the library visiting with Santa.
The kids in their Christmas Sunday best.
We went Christmas caroling last night and while I was buckling Ez into his seat, I found that Cali had jumped in the driver's seat. She looked so cute and big in the driver's seat with her santa hat on...I just had to snap a pic.
Blaine was working but I took the kids Christmas caroling with some of our friends. The kids had fun at first but it became too cold and Cali started crying, which you can imagine was a really nice touch to the singing!
