Happenings at the Lloyd house in December 2014:
Declan cut his lip pretty good.
Declan actually swung on the swing without hating every second of it. This is a first for him!
We went to the Christmas market at This is the place park and it was actually decent. There were even a few Italian vendors that I got to speak Italian to, some German sausage for dinner, handcrafted things and a great Santa! (Declan refused to get any closer to Santa, look at that expression!)
Their favorite spot in the curiosity museum these days is the “theater”. The kids can dress up, change the back ground, lighting and music. They march around the stage like crazy and try everything on, I love it (because I get to SIT and relax for a minute).
Jonah’s school did a “polar express” play for Christmas so we had to make him a “train”. This is the best I could do. Some of the trains were super fancy.
We went on a sleigh ride and sat on Santa’s lap at Riverwoods shops.
Wake up Daddy!
Nick celebrated his first 4.0 for his first semester back to college. Way to go babe!
School santa got Jonah a little something he really wanted (with a little help form Mom, great idea on his teacher’s part!)
We took the boys to see the lights at temple square.
We had Christmas eve and the Lloyd house. We have not had a Christmas at either of our family’s since Jonah’s very first Christmas, right before Nick deployed.
Christmas morning we did at our house. Gma and Gpa Lloyd came to us so we wouldn’t have to haul presents to their house.
It even snowed on Christmas day, Jonah & Declan got to try out their new snow shovels from Grandma.
We then headed back over to the Lloyd house because they got a little more snow then us and they have sleds and an awesome sledding hill! Wahoo!! This would have been Declan’s first time sledding but I don’t think we ever managed to get him down the hill. Jonah loved it though.
So fun to have Christmas near family again! Buon Natale!
