Merry Christmas everyone…..I know I am about 2 weeks late but better late then never. Our Christmas break was insanely busy. We seemed to be rushing off to one party after another. With all of the parties, we had quite a few late nights so I was a little nervous getting our kids back to school schedules this week. The first 2 days we made it. Although Monday Ted woke up at 7:30 and we rushed to get 2 kids and Ted out the door in 20 minutes and the girls and me out the door for speech therapy in 1 hour. Today we are a little closer to school schedules, only Ryan slept in (he actually woke up at 8:25) but it was a late start due to cold weather so no worries. Hopefully the really cold weather will disappear because it is skiing weather. We went once over break where Luke skied all on his own. He fell once the first time down and by the end of the day he was picking which black diamonds he wanted to go down. We only did the easier black diamonds because there were 2 we thought were a bit past our abilities…maybe by the end of the ski season this year. Ryan skied the whole time on the dog leash so that Ted could control Ryan’s speed. Ryan is good at balance, needs a lot of work on turning and hasn’t even started figuring out how to break but he is loving it.
Anyways, here are a few pictures of our Christmas break up North where there was some snow. Jenna was more worried about what Quinn was getting than opening up her own stocking. I asked Ryan for a smile……at least the faces he comes up with puts a smile on my face. The boys each got a sledding snowboard for Christmas, they were trying them out on over break.
