On Christmas Eve this year, we made graham cracker ginger bread houses. Clara had a blast and wants to make that a tradition for our family. Joe was just overwhelmed by the amount of candy he saw at the table and was frustrated I was making him put it on a house!
At one point we had TONS of gifts under our tree....
Jeremy's apron says Beckman.... He thought that was pretty cool.

Clara had a Christmas Sing at her school on Thursday this week. She was super excited to see me and kept waving at me the entire performance. Afterwards, I found out why. (Just a tiny bit of background, our school has a ton of kids, so they always have two performances and ask parents to come to a specific performance so that it doesn't get too crowded at either one. I was asked to come to the second performance of the day.) Clara didn't know there would be two performances and when she didn't see me at the first one, she was devastated that I didn't come see her. Needless to say, she was overjoyed at seeing me later on in the day.

We took the kids to go see the lights this week. It was a bit colder than it has been, so we didn't stay too long. But the kids loved getting to stay warm and bundled in the stroller while Dad pushed them around. I was there too, but for some reason, I'm not in any photos....

We got to decorate our house for Christmas and the kids have loved taking turns wearing the Santa hat.

We started our Thanksgiving week by getting to celebrate Grandparent's Day at Clara's school. None of Clara's grandparent's were able to make it last year, so Clara was super excited that ALL of her grandparents were there this year. Clara loved getting to ask them questions about what it was like when they were little. Thanks for coming!
