Colin tested out his new bicycle on the Trailgator today. He is so excited to be on his very own big boy bike instead of the seat on Daddy’s handlebars.
…the end result of the Santa cookie-making with Colin. Thankfully I convinced him that we didn’t need to make ALL the cookies look like Santa. Colin is a liberal applicant of sprinkles.
Laura made a Christmas card for us at school.
Time to catch up on holiday baking. Each of the kids chose a recipe to make: Laura made lemon shimmer cheesecake bars with little help on my part. Colin helped make sugar cookies which we will decorate tomorrow to look like Santa.
Laura and Colin both wanted to carry the basket at PetSmart. Sharing was the best solution.
At 30lb, MacDougall figures he’s a lap dog.
The kids were really excited (and a little overwhelmed) about all the generous gifts. Thank you everyone and Merry Christmas!
There wasn’t much else going on this week, so we got a dog today.
