Christmas break is now over - well, the boys start back in school tomorrow. I think the break was a day or two too long for me! While we had a fun time, I do like the structure and schedule that school provides. But the kids really just had fun playing at home for the most part. Playing with their new Christmas toys - which turned out to be the perfect toys for them, I think.
The ice rink is still up and running! I'm pretty sure it's Ben favorite part of the day: out on the rink skating with his kids. We got a few pictures tonite of the kids on their skates, as well as a video mainly showcasing Emmy. Tonite was the first nite that she did some actual ice skating - as opposed to just "standing" on her skates. She was so excited about it! Ben took Lucy on the ice and she LOVED it. He would just slide her around - in circles, back and forth, etc. Oh man, she kept going up to Ben and would say "skate" - her new word of the day. Ben could hardly refuse her cute and adorable requests. We failed to get a picture, but will some other time this week.
And a video:
