December bled into January with Christmas decorations. Towards the end of Christmas break, I needed to take out some unused Christmas crafts for entertainment. They were both excited to paint their own ornaments but I think that the skill level was for older kids…still cute to me. Their new craft table is used regularly. Our crayon collection has grown immensely, as does the amount of dinosaur drawings around the house. I was blessed with being able to attend my son’s gingerbread house making event in his kindergarten class. We had a blast decorating this together. A combination of activity from both kids…my 2 year old loves her blocks and stickers…my son is obsessed with the dinosaurs. We started using these great pastel crayons…they draw with a great hand. Unfortunately, they can do a number to your furniture. Long live the dinosaurs…my son has taken to drawing all sorts of dinosaurs and placing them around the house in scenes. My favorite was the pterodactyl hanging from the microwave. This one combines both the dinosaur cut outs with the sweetest present I have ever received from my son…my very own crown. This boy does treat me like a queen and I am so thankful for his love. This year’s supposed blizzard turned out to be a bust but the kids were still excited for what snow did come so we made the best of it. Here are their little footsteps in freshly fallen snow. Later Daddy came out for a little sledding that they both enjoyed. I am grateful to be a part of this Kids Were Here group. Please hop on the blog to see the work from the other amazing photographers.
