We made gingerbread houses! Wow, that was quite the project. My mom had visited us last year and participated in our family tradition of making gingerbread houses (a tradition from the Weaver's) and thought it would be a fun activity to keep all of us occupied. Since I did not want her to worry about making them and storing 13 gingerbread house pieces around her house the week before the wedding I offered to make them and bring them. I was very concerned about them breaking but should not have worried. We had some extra pieces ( I was prepared in case any broke) that I just tossed in the box when we went home, and they didn't even break!
Apparently we didn't get a picture of Seth or Sydney. Santa brought Sydney baby food. She loves to eat Cheerios now and has started to army crawl. She gets faster everyday and I am having trouble coming to terms with her growing up so quickly. I still think she should be about 4 months old.
So that was our December! Well, at least that is all the pictures we have of December. New Year's Eve/weekend we were lucky enough to have my sister Sarah and family stay with us. They were in town for the blessing of Jeremy's newest nephew. We just love having them around. It was fun to remember that the last time they were here was when Sydney was born!
So now we are on to January which is usually a very dreary month. This year, however, it has been full of sunshine!!! (no snow! still cold, mind you, but sunny!!) Hooray!
