As we come to the end of the year and the photo challenge, I am happy that I did it. I am secretly planning to continue, but without the pressure of telling everyone. :) We will see how far I get since I fell into several slumps during this challenge. I am happy to look back and see our activities and what I was interested in during the year. I hope to continue to chronicle our family even if I don't complete another 365.
Here are some pictures that really didn't fit in any other post.
I overexposed Sophia while she was playing with the ribbon dancer. I was really pleased with these two pictures because of her facial expressions.
Keira got new glasses. Even though they look a little big in this picture, they fit her well. We let her get a new pair of glasses because the eye doctor said that she could stop wearing her eye patch! That was a great mile stone!
We let the kids open their stocks first thing on Christmas morning. Even Patrick got in on the action!
The intelliglobe was a gift from the kids' great Aunts. They LOVE it! Kyle has learn a lot of geography since getting it, and Keira and Sophia have learned about different styles of music.
Oh December 29th, we had an appetizer dinner. Avalyn and I chose the menu and we put together all sorts of things to sample and enjoy.
Patrick makes many cute faces. He has started scrunching up his nose when he smiles! I love it!
Another gift from the kids' great Aunts was a telescope. It has rained a lot since Christmas, so we haven't gotten to use it much. But on a clear night, Adrian took it out and set it up so the kids could get a chance to use it. (I was really pleased with this picture because it was so dark outside I could barely see Adrian! The camera saw him better than I did!)
