Finger Paint and a Snow Storm

I decided to try having Conner make something for Jon this Christmas. We came up with a frame for his desk at work and Conner would paint it. The best thing for his age was finger paints so we gave it a go. It turned out great actually and was a hit on Christmas. Conner of course tried to eat it a few times, but he got the hang of it and had so much fun.
We also took advantage of the Christmas snow storm and took Conner out for his first snow experience. He loved it and kept saying "Brrr" which means he's cold but he didn't want to go inside. We love our neighbors who took him on a 4-wheeler and sled ride too.

Just to remember

I decided to post today because it really is a momentous one. 12.12.12. That's really it. I thought of how I could remember that I did something on thist day, so I decided to post. If for no other reason that to show that the day was here, and then it went. I for one am watching my sister's children while she is on vacation with her husband. I made them all go upstairs to play while I checked my email. So here we are...on a day I'm sure lots of people are going to get married because that's what people do, I'm finger painting and eating granola bars. And that's just how I like it.

I was able to capture my favorite picture of the season so far. Conner learned how to say Santa a few weeks ago and has been pointing him out ever since. I thought since he seemed excited about Santa he would be excited to meet him. Our neighborhood does a really fun get together with hot chocolate and fire pits and Santa comes to visit. Conner was really excited to see him and kept saying 'Santa' but as soon as it was our turn to sit on Santa's lap, he would have none of it. We caught this great first picture with Santa....I couldn't have asked for a better one. I love it!
