Like last year Keith and I took the boys to spend the night at Great Grandmas house, where they have a big dinner, gift exchange and the boys got to run around the house chasing the sound of sleigh bells. They got really lucky and even heard a "ho-ho-ho" in the distance. The excitement was priceless. Keith and Timmy used to do the exact thing as kids, so they ate up every second of sharing the tradition with K&A.
Keith also grew up visiting a tree farm, which he did with the boys for the first time this year. The boys helped make the final decision, watched Keith saw it down, then AJ pulled the tree back to the barn all.by.himself. Seriously. He is so strong. And since we were away on the actual Christmas eve, Santa visited our house a couple nights later instead. The boys we're ecstatic at the first sight of their new bicycles. These balance bikes are probably the best things ever. Aiden is a total pro....the first time outside he gave himself a giant push off, pulled his feet up and coasted.....like he's known how to ride a 2-wheeler for years. I think he'll be on a pedal bike by the end of summer.
Happy new year to you all. May 2016 bring you good health, love and happiness.
