He has been a little naughty the last couple of weeks. I asked him today which list Santa has him on, he looked at me, looked down, then back at me and said "The Naughty List" with the saddest face he could muster. It is totally true, but I felt bad for him...a little bit. I think it is totally normal for kids to go a little coo coo around Christmas, but some of the things he has pulled there is no excuse.
We went to see The Trains last Saturday, it was really cool and the admission goes to the Ronald McDonald House in Dallas. We met another couple there, Kevin and Maureen, they have four sons, three of which are close to Skyler's age. Anyway there were all kinds of trains and different scenery's like the Grand Canyon, New York, and the Dallas Fair. The boys were a little over whelmed when we first went in, but they started noticing all the different scene's and moving parts. They were all really cute.
Aren't they just the Cutest things you've ever seen?
After lunch we went to Half Price Books and Skyler saw another Santa, this Santa was so funny and really took time to talk to the kids. Skyler said "He was the real Santa" I'm not going to post this picture yet, so the Grand Parents can see it first. :0) But here is Skyler with a Santa Hat.
Last Sunday after Church and rest time, Scott recruited Skyler to help in the yard. They cut down some limbs in the front yard (which is why I think Skyler was wearing his bike helmet). When I got home they were still dragging all the limbs to the back yard, cutting them up and burning them in the fire pit. Skyler or should I say Crash Test Skyler was running and jumping into the tree limbs. I don't think he realized that a pile of leaves are totally different than leaves still on the tree limbs. He loved it and I cringed every time he jumped into the limb/leave pile.
Yesterday, Friday Skyler's class had a party. They had a big snowman cookie with icing and other decorations to make their own snowman. They had cupcakes, fruit, cheese, crackers, some meat slices and carrots. Most of you probably know the kids went for the snowman cookies and cupcakes. Then they realized that they could cram the icing in their faces and it went all over their face and mouth. I think if I had not been there, Sky would have had icing in his hair too. HA. Here are some pictures below.
Sky gave his snowman eyes and ears,
but it looks like four eye's.. :0)
We'll post more Christmas pictures and activities in the next week or two.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
