I could say it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, but with temperatures 20 degrees warmer than usual, the only thing that is looking like Christmas is the decorations. With a birthday a few days before Christmas, I decided this year I would take a video of my kids singing “Happy Birthday” to me with a great backdrop.
The kids certainly have grown over the past year! This weekend we upgraded from car seats to booster seats. Let me tell you just how wonderful it is to have a back seat again. They have some things to learn about car safety, but I am confident that the car seats won’t have to be too much of a threat to bring back.
I used to be afraid that my son wouldn’t like his picture taken … ever. However, I did manage to get a great picture of the two of us yesterday. This has restored some hope for me that there may be more to come before there aren’t any coming. The love he shows me when he sees me has grown a lot over the past few months even though there have been spankings and such.
My daughter is quite the avid learner. She retains a lot more information than I could ever imagine she would. From songs to Bible stories to TV shows … she can always fill you in and give you details. Sometimes, I have a fear that she’s going to leave my son far behind. At least she’s very compassionate about it and tries to help bring him up to speed with things.
Whatever holiday you celebrate this time of year, may you have a good one.
Merry Christmas from my family to yours!
