December has got away from me ... Here is a little of what we have been up to ...
Caden is starting to "like" Baby Levi. At first he didn't want much to do with him and would very vocally state, "I'm not playing with him until he is a kid" or "I'm not playing with him until he is five and I'm five". Yes, doesn't make much sense ... but apparently to the five year old it does.
We painted Christmas tree ornaments for the Grandparents. Caden defiantly has Dan's attention to detail and "worker hands". Caden always wants to be building, creating or inventing. Hopefully it pays off for him as well as us someday. Until then Dan and I will continue to attempt to be "patient" with him as he destroys the garage weekly :o)
We had a very nice early December ... the sunshine was awesome! Especially after our smokey fall! The "challenge" of taking "good" pictures of Caden grows greater with each month.
Picking out our Christmas tree was quite easy. I'm always baffled with how easy it is with Dan. We usually have a tree picked out within 15 minutes.
Growing up my parents would spend hours looking for that "perfect tree" ... sometimes we would end up at two or three tree lots in one day ... and if we went into the woods to cut it down. Forget it! It was an all day adventure ... I just don't get it Mom?! :o)
Building "gingerbread house" #1 of 3.
Abe, Marie, Caden & Baby Levi calling Grandpa on Facetime ...
Caden didn't want to see Santa, and we didn't push it ... however he was intrigued as to why the reindeer were held up with wires ... in which we told him, so they wouldn't get tired hanging out there all day. I love the five year old's mind :o)
The snow has arrived! I'm not sure I'm loving it ... but I will go with it ... and wait patiently for our beautiful spring to arrive!
Caden on the other hand loves the snow! He wants to be out there 24/7 and cant get enough of shoveling. We found a snow shovel (at the grocery store of all places) that is just his size. ... shovel away!
I hope you are staying warm wherever you are! ~ Happy Holidays!
