Christmas is just a week away and we are getting pretty excited over here. It is our year to celebrate Christmas in Washington and my whole family will be there. However, James' job doesn't allow him to take the holiday off, so once again we will be here in Utah for Christmas. At first I was pretty sad, but I think I have hit that time in life when you realize your family is growing and it isn't always possible to travel, which is an ok thing.
We have really been enjoying December this year. Koby is at the funnest age for holidays. We have been making sugar cookies, making candy count downs, doing Christmas crafts, etc. Koby has really been loving drawing lately...this has made sacrament meetings at church nicer! Here are some cute animals he drew all by himself. They are his "creature powers", if you have ever seen the show "Wild Kratts".
With Grandma and Grandpa Huntington's Christmas money we bought the kids some new snow clothes and they have already been getting their money's worth out of them! Poor James is the lucky one who has been getting to accompany them outside in the freezing cold. Sometimes being pregnant isn't so bad :)
Koby was a cute little drummer boy last week in his Preschool Christmas Program. It was fun watching him perform, but of course our child is the only kid who has to get up and go to the restroom in the middle of it. haha.
Koby has been earning money by doing chores around the house. (He sure is a pretty good sweeper now). He worked for about 2 weeks and earned his money to buy Linc a present. He was so excited to wrap it and has been asking everyday if he could give it to Linc. James and I remember that our favorite part about Christmas was buying presents for our siblings. So, hopefully this tradition will help the kids develop that same love.
Lincoln has been turning into quite the little boy lately. He has been talking up a storm at home, but only for us of course. He loves to follow Koby around and tries to do whatever his big brother does. He still loves cars, but has been getting into "guys", swords, dragons, and guns...You know, just what little boys love. He especially loves football. James is proud! He sure likes babies too, so hopefully he will adapt well to being a big brother.
And last, but not least, here is a video of our little rapper Koby, just rapping about how toilet paper is made...
