We watched Hotel Transylvania 3, folded/envelope'd Christmas cards, chased the cat, went to Target, had popsicles, and milled about pleasantly. We left in the afternoon so we could be home to make dinner (homemade pizza!), and then shared some ice cream on the couch. After I finished teaching a piano lesson we got in the car to go look at Christmas lights for family night. The kids were all cozy in their jammies and it was fun to pull them out of their seatbelts (!!) to come sit closer to us while we cruised the old paper route neighborhood. Austin talked about how Jesus Chri…

 Stockton likes to perch here while I'm in the kitchen...he's getting so big!
 helping peel potatoes (Natalie got frustrated trying to cut them with a butter knife)
 I came home from the store and Austin was teaching the kids how to build a fire, which was so cute
