Recently, like the rest of you, we've been hit with some COLD weather. I know it might not be as cold as Dallas or Lubbock but for Austin, it's COLD!! In Austin, we're used to it freezing a total of about 5 days all winter but the past month has been crazy! 17 degrees, 20 degrees, miserable! My school had a late start one day and then it was canceled the next day becasue it snowed. That was kind of fun. Kamryn and I bundled up and as we were walking out of the house Ava hauled but to the door and raised her arms up for me to hold her as if to say, "You are NOT leaving me out of the fun." So we bundled her up also and we all had fun walking through the snow. Ava loved it. She just walked and would fall down every once in a while and she'd get back up and keep walking. That was the first time Kamryn or Ava had seen snow. It was melted by noon.
Thanksgiving and Christmas were fun as usual. We got to spend time with family. One thing we learned this year is that Kamryn will not be getting very many toys next year. It's not like we got her a lot but she was so not interested in the presents. We got up Christmas morning and Kyle and I were more excited than they were. She got up and the first thing she went for was the stocking full of candy. After eating several pieces of candy and trying to decide what she'd have next, I asked, "Why don't you open some of your presents from Santa?" and she said, "Maybe later." There is something wrong when you have to coerse your child to open gifts.
