Christmas eve

merry christmas eve! i worked in the morning then we got our things ready and went to mass at St Rose at 4pm. it was the childrens mass, so they had kids act out the nativity scene and the kids choir was too cute. afterwards, our families came over for dinner and to open gifts. m&m ended the night playing a new lego game on the xbox. they tried to wait for santa, but they were too exhausted.

we had dad rollie's 40th day celebration today. it was nice, started with mass, then lots of eating, then just hanging out.

just this year, the kids started hanging out with their uncles a lot more, mostly because they are into a lot of the same things like video games.

the whole family even got into an app about superheroes and villains.

passion project

lia's been doing passion projects all year, most of which i didn't know about because she does all her work on her own now. but for this most recent one she made a little diagram with clay. she did it on the lion king, likely because she just had the show.

she can make super tiny things with clay. the whole thing is on a regular piece of paper. my favorite on this is the elephants graveyard.

micah honor roll

micah got on the honor roll for his english class. he's doing awesome in spanish, but still has some struggles. he's done wonders in half a school year of spanish, more than any of us could ever do.  it's like pulling teeth to get him to do his homework, so this was a great boost for him to get this award. so proud of my little guy.
