Almost Over...

I can't believe the kids' Christmas break is almost over. :( We have enjoyed our lazy days, sleeping in, playing games, snuggling in bed in the morning, and being able to just pick up and go with no routine. Today we went to one of our favorite malls in Denver so the kids could do some shopping with the money they got for Christmas. Kassidy didn't find anything that caught her eye and I was very proud of her for not buying something just to buy it. We went to the American Girl store, of course! They have a new machine there where you can design matching t-shirts for you and your doll. Kennedy made one for her and Charlie that says "Dance!" on it. They are cute.

After that we headed to the Disney Store where Keeghan found some sets from Toy Story that he wanted and Kennedy found a stuffed dog from the movie Bolt. Sadly, she didn't have enough money left to buy Bolt, but Kassidy decided that if Kennedy would pay what she could, Kass would cover the rest. What a good big sister! :) The boys wanted to go to the Lego store. Kameron bought a new set from The Hobbit... it's already put together of course ;) and it's pretty cool! Keeghan was trying to find something there but couldn't make up his mind and instead found a big monkey from a kiosk outside named Tank. He's silly, but Keeghan loves him... just like ALL his other monkeys! haha While we were there, Kennedy found a unicorn that she really wanted, but alas, she was completely out of money. She shed a few tears, but she got over it. It's hard being a kid. ;)

We grabbed some lunch, walked around for a bit and then went back to the American Girl store where they were doing some free crafts and a scavenger hunt. Kennedy and Keeghan each got a poster at the end... though I'm not really sure what Keeghan's going to do with an American Girl poster! haha After that we met Frank and Kam who were already waiting in the car and headed home. It was a nice day and we had lots of laughs together. :)

Tomorrow we will go to church and then get backpacks and everything ready for going back to school on Monday. I know the kids will be happy to see their friends and they're having their Christmas parties this week since they missed them because of a snow day. Kennedy will be thrilled to get back to dance class too! She has been asking almost every day. :) So we'll finish watching our last late night movie and the kids will have their last "slumber party" for a few nights and I guess we'll get ready for school. Let's count down the days to Summer break!! :)

Some parents can't wait for the vacation to be over.. I love how you always hate to see it end.. Glad you had a good one. We went back to school and work on Wed.

Know that I'm praying!
Psalms 37:23-24 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.

Awww, Natalie would have done something like that for CJ too. Don't you love how sweet these teenagers can be to their younger siblings?

I'm very behind and I'll keep reading, but have you all been able to move yet? I know you said there was some hang up with that.
