Nicholas Performance at his Christmas Party

Nicholas' class performed some songs at his Kindergarten Christmas Party.  He pretty much stayed in the back, although he knew every song and has been singing them at home the past few weeks.




Fun in the Snow

This past weekend, the boys had fun playing in the snow in our yard, and trying to clear the snow.

In the forest near our house

Here we are in the forest near our home - a few weeks ago before it

Christopher turns 2

In the morning Christopher had brought a cake with to the preschool to
share with the kids there.

Then Christopher had a small party in the afternoon with three friends
(who came without their older brothers and sisters - all friends of
Nicholas), so Nicholas and Dad went to the hardware store after we had
cake. The boys had a great time playing and the mom's were able to
relax and talk.
