This post is mostly for me.. To help remember the last few things from this season. The random things.
Unfortunately, quite a few of our pictures from the season got deleted off our camera 🙁
But I wanted to document a few of our favorite traditions, and last few Christmas goodness with the pictures that remain…
–For days we all baked and decorated gingerbread then packaged it up and delivered it to neighbors.
the only picture we have (Truman did his own hair, and in his words, ‘used a little bit of gel!’) …
Truman Religiously did this one on the fridge, again, the only picture we have,
And we did pretty good about reading scriptures about Jesus’ life daily, until the candle we lit while we read, (Which while lit, helped us to count down the days until Christmas, with marks down its’ side) fell onto my scriptures and burnt a hole in my binding!
—This year, I really, really enjoyed helping out in Truman’s Class with his preschool class party. (Pictures deleted) Toph and I also enjoyed seeing Truman perform and really sing the christmas songs, (Hand actions and everything!). He has since walked around singing the Rudolph Song constantly since then. The program concluded with a visit with Santa.
Again, the only pic we have!
A lesson learned this year–I thought was a great idea, to let Tucker and Truman help me write the gift tags on the presents. But since we wrapped them up almost a month ago, it was hard to remember if TJ heart TR was Tucker giving to Truman, or Truman giving to Tucker…I’ll be honest I’ve peeked at a few of the presents, and secretly relabeled them just so I could make sure that the right present goes to the right boy, or the right cousin!
Of course one day, while I was preoccupied with some of santa’s secret stuff, Tucker got creative. He kept walking in and out of our craft room, to the front door:
Turns out he was making a pulley to go between us and our neighbors house across the street, to pass notes. His mind is always working, wanting to create and make.
Good times, good times.
