POD: Decorating our Tree

PhotoGrid_1419210420615Today the kids finally got to really decorate our Christmas tree. They were so excited that I just sat back and took pictures. It was so much fun for us all. The best was when Violet pointed at the tree and said ‘That part isn’t ornamented.’


POD: Violet’s first Goal


After weeks of getting close to scoring,  today Violet finally put on in the back of the net.  It took till her last shift of the game.  A game filled with shots that missed the net or were stopped by the goalie one finally found its through. We’re so proud of our little hockey star.

POD: Letters from Santa


Today the kids got their letters from Santa they were so excited to open and read them. The looks on their faces as the read the letters makes all he hustle and bustle of the Christmas season worth it.

POD: Going Retro


Today Jacob had a dose of Retro gaming. At a local sub shop they have a classic table top Ms. Pac-Man game. Jacob was surprisingly excited to play it. I foresee many trips to that sub shop in my future.

POD: Looking more like Christmas



With Christmas Eve just a week away I thought  I’d share a picture of some of our decorations. Today we have our snowmen.

POD: Jingles watches


Today we have another picture of our Elf on the Shelf. Jingles is still watching over our tree though today he’s got an ornament. I suppose we really have to get to decorating it.

POD: The Prodigal Elf Returns


After the weeks of worry the kids were thrilled when they came downstairs to see Jingles had finally returned. I think he is trying to give us a hint about the lack of decorations on our tree.

POD: Jacob In the Snow


Today the city looks ready for christmas. It started to snow in the morning and didn’t stop till after the kids were home from school. I captured todays picture of the day during the walk home from school. Instead of heading straight home, the kids played in the snow with some of their friends from school for a little while. Of course that wasn’t enough for Violet who spent hours in the snow near our house playing and shoveling,

POD: Illustrated Poem


Today we have a picture from Violet’s poem book, that she’s working on with her Nan. They write the poem together and then Violet draws a picture.

POD: Violet’s Art


Today we have some of Violets Kindergarten art for our picture of the day. Considering how much she does, not everything is POD worthy. This is one I really like.
