Macy's for Christmas

Ron and I took the kids to the downtown Minneapolis Macy's for the Christmas display.  This year the theme was Santa's Elves.  It was an amazing display and Ron and I both loved seeing the wonder and sparkles in both Addie and Jackson's eyes.

At the end there was a chance to see Santa.  Jackson hopped right up on Santa's lap and showed Santa all of the things on his Christmas list including the few things he added that he thought Addie might like. Addie on the other hand, well let's just say Addie is not Santa's biggest fan.  Just wait until you see our Christmas card.

And after all of the exciting events of the morning we took the kids to Macy's for lunch.  It was a wonderful day!

The First Snow

The first snowflakes came down today.  Jackson couldn't wait to get outside and put his outdoor gear on from hat to boots all on his own!  Addie on the other hand was a little hesitant, watching from inside the house while Jackson and I played.  After seeing the fun we were having Addie warmed up (just being funny) to the idea of frolicking in the newly fallen snow.

Letter A

The other day while I was doing some homework or work at my desk I set Addie up with some crayons and some stickers.  A few minutes later she shouts "It's an A!" I turned to look and sure enough, this was on her paper:

I tried to ask her to make another A and it didn't seem that she was able.  I'm guessing this came out and she surprised even herself!

Getting Crafty

I have been incredibly busy at work and with school so my blog has not been doing well.  I find it hard to write details about what we are up to because I can rarely concentrate for any length of time when I am not working or doing homework.

However, I am still finding the time to soak up all the great things that come along with being a mom.  Lately we've been doing some crafts in our house.  With the cooler weather I enjoy the time in my house coming up with new ways to entertain the kids. 

This particular project was a little more about entertaining me as it required the use of a craft knife that was much too sharp for small fingers.  I made this storm trooper one, but also a Boba Fett and Darth Vader snowflake.  Jackson was way impressed!
