Christmas Traditions

Kelly over at Kelly's Korner is doing a post today on What your family Christmas Traditions are.

We really only have one tradition and I started it with Alex when she was probably 4 or 5, every year the kids get to pick out a new ornament. I love getting them out every year especially Alex's because it's fun to see what they were in to that year.

This year:

Alex picked out Tinkerbell (she's 14 but is going through a Tinkerbell phase, this is the 2nd year in a row she picked out a Tinkerbell ornament).

Matthew picked out a Hot Wheels ornament and

Ryan picked out a Batman, which he quickly broke so Daddy has to fix Batman's leg.

I guess we do have another tradition, we always put up our Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving but I think alot of people do this.

Matthew and Aaron went to Georgia this past weekend so they could attend a Georgia football game (Matthew's first game). Matthew had a BLAST! And he did much better than this nervous mommy thought he would, he was tired but he handled it all like such a big boy (or so I was told).

Field Trip to the Arboretum

I went with Matthew (and his class) to the Arboretum on Wednesday. I think the highlight of the field trip for Matthew was getting to ride a school bus for the first time. I didn't get too many pictures but did get a couple of group shots and some of Matthew with his friend E'Colby (he was in our group). I was only responsible for Matthew and E'Colby but a few of the moms and I decided it would be more fun to walk around as a group (so the group shots are not his whole class just the few of us that walked together).

Update on Potty Training

Ryan is potty trained!!!!! He has only had one accident in a week and a half, can you believe it? He woke up one morning and just started going on the potty and hasn't turned back since, so crazy. So, after approximately 8 years of diapers (almost 6 straight years) we are diaper free is our house!
