Christmas Break 2014 Pt 1

We always enjoy the good times that come with being out of school! The Christmas break of '14 wasn't fully documented with photos, but here are a few things we did:
Gingerbread Houses
Ellie's sweet preschool teacher sent a lovely gingerbread house kit home with each of her students. I might just be categorized as a "bad mom" for the bare fact that I've never purchased such a product, nor engaged in this specific activity--which is, to many, a necessary winter tradition--with my children. So we did it together. I told myself I'd never do such a project again, especially with kids...but what I tell myself is irrelevant after about a week anyway.
Posing with the Edible Masterpiece...and Isaac by his school-made penguin and birdfeeder.

Six Flags
We finally got Six Flags Passes! Pregnant people can only watch at most amusement parks (I had to hide my belly with my purse on the pedestrian train ride!), so that's what I did. And I snapped a few pictures.

Perhaps it's because I'm blogging over a year after this happened, but I don't remember going shopping on Christmas Eve. Apparently we did. And Ellie really wanted me to get this picture of her with this new, hip, adoptive family she met.

Snow!? In Texas!?

Yep, it's Sea World. You have to wait in line, but it's worth it if you love and miss snow as much as we do. We'll probably be singing a different tune if we ever move out of Texas, but for now...there's Sea World!

My Student

This guy loves homeschooling so much. Can't you tell?? He is a fun kiddo to spend the day with, although he's quite stubborn at times. Never uses a pencil; always a pen. Bathroom breaks are our favorite mandatory activity...not. All of our homeschool activities will be in a separate album, but I thought I'd give a shout out to my Noah. And, of course, Isaac is giving him bunny ears here. I guess that's what he learned in public school. Ha! Joking.

Her First Real Haircut!

It was long overdue, but we are very happy with the results.
