Play dough

Drew got his first taste (literally and figuratively) of play dough recently. He did really well playing with it and was only tempted to put it to his mouth a few times. We will definitely have to do it again soon.

Crafty Naomi

Naomi spent a lot of December at our craft table making all sorts of gifts (most of them for me!) It was fun to watch her be focused for hours as she created.

Davey's Recital

Davey had her first recital for her music class this month. She did great. She definitely has a gift for music and a discipline for practicing that I greatly appreciate.

Disney on Ice

The girls and I got to see Disney on Ice earlier this month thanks to cheap tickets through Naomi's preschool. Malia and Davey each got to bring a friend as a birthday treat. We all really enjoyed it.

40 nuggets

Earlier this month, Andrew was out of town for a couple of days which meant we went through the McDonald's drive through for dinner. I got 40 nuggets and the 6 of us (5 kids plus me) almost were able to finish them. I can only imagine what our grocery bill will look like in 5-10 years as they all continue to eat more.

Chrissy Bear and Otis the dog

Naomi didn't have enough Bible bucks for the big gift certificate at church, so she enjoyed spending her money at the church's store. She came home with several things including "Chrissy Bear" and "Otis the dog". Every time she says "Chrissy Bear" it makes me smile.

No nap...

Since early November, Naomi has not been napping much. This has not been the smoothest of transitions... she often falls asleep around 4:30 or 5 in random places and we have to push her to stay awake until bedtime. On this particular night, she went downstairs to grab baba and fell asleep at the bottom of the stairs!
