It’s been another great month here in our house, with the conclusion of Hanukkah, the end of school for the 2nd quarter, and winter break. Here are some of the highlights:

A gymnastic birthday party is such a great idea for when my kids are a little older. Having late fall and winter birthdays makes finding things to do that aren't what everyone else is doing so much more difficult because you likely can't go outside. Thanks for giving me the idea!

well I guess you can thank my friend whose daughter had the party! :)
