Sunday we had Christmas with Gigi, Papa, Uncle Kelly, and Aunt Tina. That meant more yummy breakfast and more presents. Elise was thrilled to get a telescope from Aunt Tina and Carter was excited to get a gift card from Uncle Kelly. When Elise opened roller skates on Christmas he was bummed because he decided he wanted some. We used the gift card to order him a pair of roller skates and that made him so happy! Elise was so excited about her glittery jacket from Gigi and Papa that she ran to show it to my parents first thing when she saw them on New Year's Eve. I thought that was adorable! Gigi and Papa also got the kids a giant set of markers which were a huge hit. We spent a lot of time coloring in the next couple of days. At one point we were laughing that there were 3 adults coloring and only 2 kids. Later the kids wandered off and Amanda and I stayed coloring. The markers were really a present for everyone! My head was a little off for a few days after my migraine so I really failed at getting pictures on Saturday and Sunday of our festivities. While Elise was napping Carter had lots of energy and was a little wild. It was a pretty day so we decided to get outside. The other days were super cold with the high not even reaching 30 degrees! We walked to the playground and then walked a little further to the hiking trails nearby that run along a creek. Carter had just happened to choose to wear his rain boots which was perfect because he got to stomp around playing in the ice in the creek. We had a blast throwing rocks into the ice and watching them break through. Ty had as much, if not more, fun as Carter! I left my phone at the house for this trip so I didn't get any pictures.

|I didn't have my rain boots so Ty carried the kids through the water to the ice.|

I'm not sure what day these happened or where they fit in, but I want to remember a couple other Wyatt stories. On Thursday I wore a red and black checkered shirt. He had a pair of jammies with that same pattern. One night I took Carter and Elise downstairs to get their jammies and Wyatt came with us. He saw my dirty shirt laying in our dirty clothes pile and said, "Wyatt jammies!" Then he grabbed my shirt and started to take it upstairs thinking he was getting his jammies like the big kids. He was sick and not sleeping well at night during their visit. One night he was fighting getting jammies on so I sang the jammy pokey with him to get his feet and arms in. He loved it and it was so cute how he immediately stopped wiggling around and trying to get away when we turned it into a game. I'm already looking forward to the next time we get to see him! Kinley is the best baby. She is so sweet and happy, always smiling and rarely crying. We loved our time with her as well!
