Ice Queens

We took Alex and Kaitlyn to an ice skating lesson the week of Christmas. They had the best time ever. Wow! Two super excited princesses on the ice = a great memory for all. This was Alex's first time on the ice, and she handled it beautifully. This was Kaitlyn's third lesson and it was amazing to see how much progress she's already made. I literally had to pull Alex off the ice kicking and crying because she didn't want to stop. We got lucky and the instructor (per Alex's suggestion of course) took the girls back out on the ice for 15 minutes of undivided attention. Alex even skated on her own for a few moments. We certainly plan to go back as soon as we can!

Oh, this is going to be fun!

Here she is skating all by herself!

Show off!

Kaitlyn was a total pro. Check her out.

Sweet friends holding hands

All smiles

So cute

The sadness sets in. Sigh. Pitiful! It's over.
They had a blast and so did the moms. We are ready to go again!

Merry Christmas

Stressed but blessed will be our holiday motto this year. I just want to say thank you to all for your prayers, support and blessings over the past few weeks. I am blown away by the generosity of our friends and family. Here is our Christmas timeline since having kids. I love to look back each year and reflect:

Alex's first Christmas, 10 months old
Alex was too freaked by Santa, so we skipped this year. She is 22 months old.
Almost 3 years old
Carson's first Christmas. He is 3 months old, Alex is almost 4
Christmas 2009: Carson is 15 months old, Alex is almost 5

Many blessings to you and your family. Merry Christmas!!
