Nothing sweeter...

 There is nothing sweeter than a sweet Sister taking a bath in the kitchen sink! 

She loves the bath! She loves to take a bath in the sink! 

Mama loves it too. I can cook dinner, do the dishes, set the table, clean the kitchen, wash the floor, put away groceries. There is an endless list of things I can get done while she enjoys some bubbles in the sink. 

Such a sweet Sister.

Christmas in January

Well, a little over a month ago, it was Christmas and it was a fun filled time at our house. Isaac and mama hung lights outside. It was the sweetest time, he did lots of the work and it was simple and yet fabulous! 

We decorated the inside of the house, the tree was perfect, there were touches of Jesus everywhere. The kids loved it. 

Caitlyn decorated and undecorated the tree almost every day. The kids sat on the arm of the couch and looked at the different ornaments. We read some Christmas books, not as many as we might have liked. We watched Christmas movies. We baked cookies and ate them! 

We snuggled, we laughed, we ate great food and we loved it. 

Isaac and mama made a little tree for Caitlyn to decorate and undecorate as often as she wanted. It was a huge hit and will definitely come out again next year. It was a fun craft for Isaac and mama to do together and it was fun to watch Caitlyn love it!  

Of course we saw Santa. Caitlyn was not the biggest fan of Santa, but this is the same Santa Isaac has had every year so far so he is a favorite of ours. It was a fun day, it is one of my favorite things to do with the kids. I took Isaac out of school early, we had a special lunch, we did some shopping, watched movies and relaxed once we told Santa what we wanted this year. Puzzles were big for Isaac this year! 

It was a fabulous celebration.
