Dance Class and Potty-training

Clever title, eh?

A couple things to share:

First, Brian has decided that the potty is cool, and goes pee on it whenever I tell him, and has even started telling me on his own when he needs to go. He even poos on the potty! This is very exciting for me because I thought the boys would be harder to train than Hadley. Elijah still has little interest so I'm just going to wait until he is more ready. I think I tried too early with Hadley, which resulted in a lot of frustration and it took a long time for her to be trained.

Second, we got to watch Hadley in her dance class this week. She was really fun to watch and definitely loves to dance.

Christmas Celebrations

I finally downloaded our Christmas pics, so here are a few highlights:
1. Skating/Hockey with the Turcatos (my Aunt Anne's family) in Taber on Christmas Eve
- Elijah was not a fan of the cold or wearing his gloves. Not a good combo
- Brian loved it
- Hadley skated (sort of) for the first time

Hadley playing hockey with uncle Mike and Gramma Freeze

Brian's sporting Hadley's 2007 snowpants......he doesn't seem to mind

The Brians

We were about to leave and Hadley was sad that she didn't get to go on the sled (pulled by a quad), so John asked my uncle for a ride. He's so nice. Hadley and Brian loved it. Elijah was not a fan so he didn't join the fun.

2. A visit from Santa (aka Grampa Santa) at John's parent's house.

3. Nativity and Star Birthday cake at my parent's house
- Elijah was not a fan of dressing up like a shepherd so he is MIA once again

They were so reverent. Brian almost sat there the whole time. I was impressed.

4. Christmas morning at our house


John (aka Santa's helper) made this cute little giraffe for Hadley. He carved it and the plan was to have Grampa Santa give it to Hadley on Christmas Eve, but I forgot about it and left it safely hidden at home, so Grampa Santa just told Hadley to look for it in her stocking...whoops.....
