December brought decorating for Christmas, which Jacob helped out a lot with. You’ll notice his handy work on the tree: the clustered Mickey Mouse ears. He also got a Christmas tree for his room for the first time this year. He LOVED it. He picked out two ornaments for it and loved turning it on and off each night.

We made special marshmallow/candy cane treats for the teachers at his school. Our neighborhood had a Christmas celebration one weekend where Santa came, there was a horse-drawn carriage ride, and of course, balloon twisters!

At the end of the month we went to Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg to celebrate my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary! Jacob had a blast with all the activities and loved the water park. Harper showed she was a true water baby, wanting to go under water and splash all around. Jacob, Hayden, and I were just getting over a very yucky sickness, but dad was still sick. While the trip was fun, we were easily worn out!
