Gabe's Christmas Party & Song Show Recital Thingy
Here's Gabe dressed as a snowman (so cute!) with Jack and Tyler in front of his classroom just after the show.

Christmas Cookies - 2007

Today we made Christmas cookies. Not for Santa, just to eat - right before lunch. We had a blast. It was so fun to let the kids go for it. I let them eat whatever they wanted...even if it was frosting straight from the container. We played Christmas music and Daddy even came out to enjoy it for awhile right smack in the middle of his work day! So fun. Merry Christmas everyone.

Winter Activites - 2007Mommy putting on Gabe's ice skate at the rink
This year, Gabe became a pretty good skater. Mostly, we were so proud that he never got discouraged after falling...not even once!!
Gabe, the happy skater
Jack and Daddy playing games
Getting better and better...
Jack offered Gabe lots of support and encouragement
Jack also improved a lot this year and is a very confident skater
Daddy showed Gabe that everybody falls sometimes
