Our busy December

We have been so busy this past month! I have been horrible about blogging the past several weeks. I honestly don't know where the time has gone! Here are a few things we have been up to.

We had breakfast with Santa at the beginning of the month. This is an event held at the Fort Worth club every year that Jay's parents treat us to. It is always so much fun and we are so lucky to get to go every December.

The boys are on vacation from school until January.

They both LOVE school! Bailey loves learning what letter each word in the english language starts with. He loves learning about the seasons, months of the year and has been practicing writing his letters. He also loves chapel time and Spanish class at school. Now days, any time I tell him something he informs me that he will need to check with his teachers and see if it's right. What happened to the days when he didn't question Mommy?!

Blake also really enjoys school. They say his favorite part of the day is outside time and art. I am glad that he is so happy while he is there. His one day a week away from me has been good for both of us. He is definitely not the mommy's boy that Bailey is. This kid is a Daddy's boy. Now, don't get me wrong, he has many moments where all he wants is mommy, but there is a big difference between the boys!

Blake has two teeth now and can stand independantly. He is still eating anything and everything! He turned 10 months on Sunday. He has been wearing some clothes that are for a 12 month old

because he is so long. His 6-12 month pants are like highwaters on him and some of his shirts are now 3/4 sleeves on him. He went to the doctor the other day and is 29 inches and 21 lbs. He is really good at walking while holding your hand. He can go pretty fast.
The Fort Worth Museum reopened recently and we bought a membership. The kids had a great time there. They had so much stuff for Bailey to do! We didn't get the chance to see the planetarium, but will do that soon. We saw the Polar Express at the Omni while we were there. We have done this the past two years and Baley really enjoys it. We are definitely getting into the Christmas spirit around here. Bailey is SO ready for Jesus' birthday and Daddy's birthday. Plus, he is very excited about Santa this year and knows exactly what he would like Santa to bring him.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
