Alex and Ryan's Homemade Ornaments, 2012 - similar to last year's Fingerprint Snowman Ornaments, we made fingerprint Penguin Ornaments this year. I love how they came out! Each boy made their own, so all family members received one green and one red ornament.
Then again with good friends so we can ogle Richard Armitage together.
Driving through Round Rock's Trail of Lights.
Look what Santa brought!
Minecraft legos for Alex, and mining legos for Ryan.
Pleased with my ability to "wrap" Minecraft for Alex for Christmas - the legos, the "gift card" that purchases the game only available for download, a minecraft t-shirt, and a minecraft creeper scarf. God help us, but we gave him an online account on a server run by a friend that is only for third graders at our school. We were one of the last holdouts and frankly I gave in because I was really, really tired of hearing him ask 4,235 times a week when we would let him get an account.
Ryan loves his very own chess set. He's a full first grader now. :)
Carl also made a single post for Alex. :)
Opening Presents with the extended family.
Chris helped us sew on all the boys Scout patches on these new blankets we got them for Christmas. They came out fantastic!
Houston Family Christmas with Bebe, Mom, and Cheryl.
Ryan used the walker for a bit, but then decided he was done, and off he went.
Here's hoping that 2013 turns around for us and the fact that we are in the year of 13 won't turn me into a Triskaidekaphobiaist.
