Well, the Christmas holiday came and went, and of course, I got so caught up in all the holiday “doing” that I forgot to document what we were doing. So, here is the recap of the rest of December.
Snow Day at the Hill Country Galleria: This was one of our advent calendar activities. We were warned that the big kids got a little rough with the “snow” (more like snow from a sno-cone than soft powdery flakes). This is a picture of me trying to protect Jude after I was beaned in the glasses for like the fourth time by wily 10 year olds. Jude had fun though.
Christmas Shopping at the Arboretum: We took a break in between shopping to play on the cows and run around outside.
Cookie Swap: Here was my entry for the cookie swap at work. I finally got to use my dachshund cookie cutter.
Angry Birds: Our friend, and former roommate, Aron, gave Jude an Angry Birds playset for Christmas. Jude was building towers and singing the song all morning.
Hanging Out with the Cousins: Joshua and Jason came over one evening. I thought this picture was hilarious because they were all on their electronics and digital devices: Wii, DS, laptops, cell phones.
Trail of Lights: We went on the final night of Trail of Lights, and it was a madhouse. I think we would have enjoyed it more if we weren’t packed like herded cattle moving at a dismally slow pace.
Christmas Eve Bowling: It’s become a Limon/Ordonez/Mitchell tradition to go bowling. It was really fun, apparently so much so, that we missed Christmas mass.
Christmas Day: We were having so much fun on Christmas, I managed to make a video, but forgot to take hardly any pictures. We had three family Christmases and by the end of it all we were dog-tired, and Liam was weenie-dog tired. Jude is pouting because he hates smiling for pictures and we had a long drive to Waco.
