Peas in a pod

The kids had a vocabulary parade at school.  Normally, Holden doesn't participate in dress up days but this year, he selected his words and outfit to match.  He is "sophisticated" and of course, Hattie picked "feline".  Both selections perfectly match their personalities!

A note from the sub

Holden had a substitute teacher at school who wrote this note.  Warms my heart!  
Thank you for your excellent manners.  Your respectful behavior is greatly appreciated."
Parent win!

Pre-Christmas Festivities

To kick off Christmas break, we hit up Star Wars on opening day after the kids got out of school.  While everyone at school was dressed in Christmas gear, Hattie was rocking her Darth Vader outfit.
I took the kids to an indoor waterpark for some Christmas break fun.  There were very few people there so we had free reign in there.
It was about 80 degrees outside so we were able to have a picnic outside in December in our bathing suits!  This weather is crazy!
We even convinced Hattie to ride on the big slides...until the lifeguards realized she was too short.  That was a fun killer!
We had a great time!  Swimsuits in December was a new adventure.
