Week 2

We didn't manage to fit in our traditional Christmas party with Dave and Rhonda in December so we had it on Saturday. Sam had drill so he was down at the base all weekend and ended up going bowling with his family for Orvil's birthday. But the rest of us, including my mom, dad, and Wyatt headed over to Rhonda's for dinner and games. And of course the kids got spoiled with all kinds of fun presents from them too. Kaitlyn especially loved the Alice in Wonderland pop-up book and Chuck the Talking Truck was a big hit with Ty. It was kind of fun to spread out Christmas this way.
(the photos aren't the best from that night. I'm still trying to figure out all the settings on the small camera)

On Monday, Tyler woke up and told me "no diapers!" so the potty training has begun again. It's not easy by any means, but the fact that he is more into it this time is certainly helping.

Kaitlyn had Show and Teach (similar to show and tell but they are supposed to teach the class how to do something) at school on Wednesday. She always looks forward to this day, even though she agonizes over what she wants to teach. But once she came up with a plan she was SO excited. She chose to demostrate how to make "fruit shakes" (smoothies). On Tuesday night she insisted on "practicing" so she made us fruit shakes to go with dinner. On Wednesday morning she was awake extra early and had herself all ready to go (breakfast, hair done, brushed her teeth) by 7:15 (bus time is 8:15). She wanted to ride the bus to school so I put her on the bus, dropped off Ty at Mom's house and met her at the school with the blender and other things she needed. She did a fantastic job demonstrating - did all the steps flawlessly and even remembered to describe what she was doing as she went along. And she was happy to report that at snack time everyone tried the shake and liked it.
