It was a hectic holiday season and with 5 hours to go till the end of 2010, I find myself again busy, busy busy. Our word for 2011 will be PEACE. In everything we do, we will strive to find it, keep it, encourage it and welcome it. It's not always the easiest thing to do while juggling the burdens and demands we carry, however, we will try. Perhaps I mean to say, I will try.... Life needs to slow down so we can welcome peace into our hearts and souls. Life needs to slow down so we can enjoy every waking moment (even if at 5am!) with Adam and Aggie and each other. Life needs to slow down so we embrace everything and don't miss a thing!
When you make a hard left turn into the day care parking lot becuase you "almost" drove past and your child yells out "CAREFUL Mommy!". I was speachless for a moment becuase I just hear two words strung together AND I had to tell Adam he was Right! Mommy should be more careful!
I think I have figured out what made Aggie fall asleep at the dinner table....just good 'ol holiday fun!
She likes to try on everyone's boots and winter clothes We had our first Day Care Holiday Program
Grandpa gave horsey rides and Adam & Aggie learned how to say "Giddy Up!" We met Santa on a Street Car! We paid $.50 cents per person and took a 15 minute ride around down town Kenosha. We had the street car to ourselves!! I couldn't believe that no one else knew about Santa's visit. Needless to say we sang every Christmas song we could remember including Jingle Bells a couple of times. Check out Aggie's eyes staring at Santa....Although there were no tears, I wonder if she is thinking...."Hmm, What's this jolly 'ol fellow up to?" We all joined in the fun telling Santa what we wanted for Christmas! Look how comfortable Adam is! Aggie is still checking out Santa! ...and if meeting Santa wasn't enough, then we went on a Sleigh Ride! I wish we had a little more snow because the ride was a little bumpy. However, it was another opportunity to sing more carols "laughing all the way!" Our friends from Colorado came all the way to Kenosha for their first sleigh ride! What a great day! Merry Christmas Everyone! Merry Christmas!~
I have heard of this phenomenon before, but never actually witnessed it.....Purely amazing how a child can fall asleep in the middle of dinner. One moment Aggie was eating and the next THIS! Nonetheless, we passed up bath time and went straight to bed!
