Day Trip to Savannah

We spent the day in Savannah while Julie and Mom were here. We had a great lunch at Uncle Bubba's and then spent the rest of the day at the park. It was a little cool, but the kids had a lot of fun.

Judah's First Bike Ride

Christmas Day

Christmas Eve at Chick-fil-a

So, I never made it to take the kids to see Santa this year. We are intentionally trying not to make a big deal about Santa, but I did at least want to get the kids ' picture made with him. Unfortunately, the month got away from me. We ended up going to CFA Christmas Eve morning to get the kids' pictures made with Santa Cow. He was there when we got there - I went to get the kids' food - and I see a guy walking out carrying a large bag, which I am sure was the costume. Oops! Hopefully, the kids will not be too disappointed if they try to line up their Santa pictures through the years and realize I missed this one.

We had a birthday party for Judah and some of his buddies the Sunday after his birthday. I tried to come up with the games, etc. by myself and it was a lot. If it had not have been for all of our family that were in town helping out, it would not have gotten done. Thankfully, Judah had a good time. He has ranked the party games from his most favorite to his least favorite. No big shocker that the dinosaur relay (and the huge cereal box shoes) came in last. Oh well, things to keep in mind for next year.
I am toying with the idea of celebrating his half-birthday in June. His birthday is really close to Christmas, and he forgot most of the toys that he got by the time Christmas was done. It also made my plan for really focusing our family on Advent a little off. I guess I have time to figure out what to do.

Judah Xmas Program Pics

Judah did so good at his Christmas program. I could hear him over all the other kids in his class. Maybe he is going to have a lucrative recording career and support his mom and dad in their old ages.
