Well, it’s official I have a new tween in the house. JD reached double one status and really enjoyed his birthday week. I brought a cake to his class to share on Wed. He got up in front of the class as they sang the song and then he graciously bowed and repeated “thank you very much everyone”. It was adorable. That night we gave him the choice to pick anywhere he wanted to go for dinner; choices like Teppanyaki, Chili’s, the Marina….my boy picks McDonald’s (which wasn’t one of the options…hmmm). Go figure! He’s like wimpy…He loves his cheeseburgers. So we went (man I wanted Teppanyaki) and after we came home, he opened up his presents from us. He had a board game thing going on since we are trying to get him more involved in “group” play. He always wants to play alone and so we keep trying to break that up a little more and give him opportunities to interact with others in play. He’s doing well with that so far. So here we are all playing one of his games…the Dr Seuss game he was eyeballing in the PX a few days back.
And here’s all of them…sucked into the tree.
Hippo’s are fun…ask Saige!
More presents. YAY!
On top of that and amongst a plethora of other things…the FRG hosted it’s annual Christmas party for all the Families and Soldiers. It was a great success. I was in charge of Santa pictures and the picture frame craft. Check out my kiddies getting their Santa on…
And last but not least…this is what the Holiday Spirit is all about!! Hands down!
