Yesterday was Bobby and Daddy’s first Taekwondo Winter Tournament and they’d been looking forward to it for weeks. We weren’t sure how well Cordelia would do at an almost all-day event, so we took both vehicles just in case. Cordelia really wanted to participate too and kept saying how big of a girl she was, so Bobby spent some time showing her his pattern before running off to see his friends.
My sweet boy… today you turned 7. I feel like it was just yesterday that I held you in my arms for the first time and my life was forever changed.
You have always had such a wonderful personality. You are loving, kind, caring, thoughtful, and so smart! You amaze me every day, and I am so lucky to be your mom. I love you to the end of the universe and back, and I am so very proud of you. Happy birthday Monkey. ♥
Did this month disappear for anyone else? Feels like we just set the tree up. I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season. It’s been quiet on the blog because we’ve been enjoying some quality family time these past few weeks which has been wonderful. Every Christmas with the kids gets better and better, this was Cordi’s first year of really understanding what was going on and it was so much fun. She was insanely excited to meet Santa, and was excited every morning to find where the elves were hiding.
Christmas Eve they got to open a few presents from their far-away Grandparents as well as a couple movies (Finding Dory and Secret Life of Pets – both fabulous) and new jammies from their little elf friends, then we went over to my in-laws for the traditional munchie night – where we all make way too much food and have a few drinks. Christmas morning the kids rushed down to see what Santa had brought. We put on A Kitten’s Christmas and opened gifts, then packed up and headed over to my in-laws again for brunch, more festivities, and of course an amazing turkey dinner.
