Leah and Joel have been practicing riding their bikes at my parents. I only took video of Leah so no pictures but she is doing awesome. She needs a second or two of help starting and can only stop using her feet but can go for a long while on her own. I’m so proud of her. Joel rides this trike by moving it with his feet without the pedals.

I want to be more intentional about taking pictures together as a family. Even if they aren’t great with everyone looking and smiling, they show us being together which I think is important.

I don’t get very much one on one time with Joel (in part I’m to blame as I try to be productive after my daycare kids leave and make dinner and clean). I treasure the time I have no expectations but to be spend quality time with them. Leah was off with Grandpa running some errands so I recruited Joel to help my mom and I make pudding. He refused to try it along with refusing chocolate cake and brownies.

Leah painting like the artist she is learning about in preschool, Georges Seurat who painting only using little dots. It sounds all so academic.

Joel loves puddle jumping, even when he falls because of the dip in the ground.

Leah and her buddy thought it might snow sometime soon so they were adamant about wearing snow gear.

Getting ready for preschool.
I took the kids to a Christmas carnival today. Leah had a blast with a good friend while Joel alternated between watching them partake in the activities and wandering around with me bringing him back to the group when he went too far.
