Kira is standing on the new "big toy" -- a trampoline (including a big net!) that Santa brought for all the kids in the family! Later in the afternoon, Ken and Austen set it up. Still later, it was moved to a different location in the back yard. It's providing LOTS of exercise for all three kids plus their neighbor friends. Some of the best Star Wars light saber "battles" take place there!! LOL
Austen and Parker, with one of their new computer games. Additional games were purchased with Christmas money on the 26th! Now they need to be monitored: After every 2 hours on the computer or Xbox, there need to be 2 hours of reading or outdoor exercise! Do we need to set timers? Sometimes!
Anne and I went to Kira's school's Christmas program last week. All the children (pre-K through grade 1) took part in the singing and then had parties in their separate classrooms. A few pictures will give the general idea. Kindergartners ... there's nothing quite like them!
