We had such a wonderful Christmas! The kids had so much fun opening their presents and playing with all the new toys. Our living room looked like a tornado went through, but they were so cute to watch. Brayden received so many cars. I honestly think almost every toy he got was a car. He loved it! Leah enjoyed her pink guitar, new puzzles, and her princess stamps. We had a nice quinoa breakfast with lots of fruit. Leah loved using their new plates.
The weather was wonderful on Saturday and Cavan and Leah enjoyed shooting balloons with his pellet gun. Leah would tell him what color balloon she wanted him to pop next and he would shoot it. She thought it was so great. She stood on a red circle while he was shooting to make sure she was safe, and she really did a wonderful job! She loves her Daddy!
Leah has been staying awake during nap time lately. I think it's been 4 days since she has taken a nap. As I am typing this she has been already sleeping for about 10 minutes (it's 6:28pm). She has been sleeping from about 6:30pm until 7:30am. It's really nice to have her consistently going to bed earlier as Brayden needs to go to bed around that time as well. She still goes upstairs during Brayden's nap time and plays with her doll house and reads books - so I at least have some time to myself.
We had Grandpa and Grandma Carlson came over for dinner last night. It was so nice spending time with them at our house. The kids had so much fun with them. After dinner we had a Paleo German Chocolate Cake and sang "Happy Birthday to Jesus". Leah got to blow the candle out and we all enjoyed the cake.
After the kids went down for bed, we played Hand and Foot with Cavan's parents. We really enjoyed it, and it was a lot of fun beating the guys. I really hope we are able to do it again.
It was so beautiful outside today (a little chilly, but beautiful), so we went out to play with the kids. Brayden and Leah were playing with the tarp Cavan had out to pick up leaves, and quickly it became a game. Cavan pulled them around on the tarp for about an hour. They were laughing so hard, and it was so much fun to watch. I even got a short ride around the yard, and let me tell you - it WAS fun!!
Enjoy the pictures. Merry Christmas!!
