All Is Well...

December birthdays are always exciting!
After recovering from being sick, we celebrated mine.

This is our third year going for a carriage ride in downtown Boise.
All the kids, big and small were thrilled and 
excited to, trot through town.

The horse hoofs clamp, clamp on the pavement,
and the bells jingled, as we all shouted out,
🎄Merry Christmas!
to those who stopped to look.

A little rain didn't keep us, Seattle natives,
from enjoying this thrill.

Bob, the horse,
 even popped up his head for this picture!

Back at the house, I opened some 
very special birthday gifts
from each child!

What's a birthday without cake and ice cream?? 

Nathan thought we were singing to him.
So cute!

After celebrating my birthday, 
(all week long!)

I had some Kitchen Helpers over.

Chex Mix !
Easy and fun for the kids to make
and eat.

I just stood back and watched!
They are getting so big.

Can you tell they took over my kitchen?
I sure do enjoy Christmas break!!

Later in the week, a few grands came over 
and we made Christmas trees out of
pine cones, ornaments for their tree.

Here a babysitting hint!

Buy colorful, plastic cups
and let the kids have fun

It doesn't matter what age,
they all love to build.
The higher the better.

And so much fun when it falls down.

Ahhhh.... satisfaction and smiles!

Well done Isaac!
