December is always a busy month. Here’s what we were up to when we weren’t doing the typical holiday things:
AFV (America’s Funniest Home Videos) is a favorite at our house. Everyone likes it!
Jonathan got himself an early Christmas present – a new Subaru Outback! Okay, technically, it was a long-overdue purchase for BOTH of us. The station wagon is our “cool” car. It really freaks me out thinking this will likely be the first car Avery learns to drive!

Nothing like a little Christmas Star Wars puzzle to get the season going.
Silas discovered YouTube drawing tutorials. Give this kid some markers, a stack of paper, and a laptop, and you won’t hear from him all day. I literally had to make him step away just to eat a little lunch. There is something so rewarding about seeing your child in a flow, doing something they love so much they can’t pull themselves away. The intensity of this five-year-old is pretty impressive, and makes me so proud!
