Christmas Break Recap

Christmas break was super cold this year!  We didn't venture far from home.  It was nice to have some down time.

Pierce has suddenly become relentless about learning how to ride.  Francie is not a beginner horse.  But I did let him walk her around on the lunge line one day.


Cort spent a great deal of time in frigid temps riding this spinning big wheel on my parents' driveway (ours is gravel). 

Reid asked for a biohazard suit for Christmas.  Santa delivered.  He needs to grow into it.  They just don't make biohazard suits in kid sizes.

Twice we met up with cousins for some rollerskating.  Rollerskating is a great activity during the cold winter months.  I enjoy getting out there, too. 
Overall, we had a nice break.  It was over in a blink, and now back to school through May.

Great activities! Big Wheels were a HUGE hit when we were kids. The cold has been brutal this winter, hasn't it? Francie looking great -

Looks like a lot of fun! I always loved breaks when the kids were little and home. I liked the down time from "have-tos" and lazy days doing things we enjoyed. Looks like you are doing the same!

The biohazard suit is hilarious! And of course I am dying to know WHY did he want one? Was he studying them in school? I have not heard of a spinning big wheel, but it looks like fun! Francie is so gorgeous, thanks to you. Is she your horse now, and doesn't like other people as much?

It looks like you had a great holiday break with your sweet boys!

I loved riding my big wheel when I was a kid. Such fun!

Looks like you had a wonderful break. Lots of great activities. I haven't roller skated in years. :)

I love finding out what you folks are up to!
My middle child, and wife, are about to have a baby this spring. We may visit. They are out west.
My youngest, another son, is having issues, and we don't see him much.
I like reading your posts and remembering the things we used to do!
They are all in their 30s. My daughter and I are the closest. She actually buys me birthday presents! sigh.

I've never known a kid who wanted a biohazard suit! But you never know, he may find usefulness for it. Looks like a fun time in spite of the cold weather.

Mary said...

I love all your boys exiting adventures - what a marvelous time you all have together Lisa.
Happy days to you all - we've been snow in (7inches) since Wed. but warming and melting fast now. Hopefully I'll never require the blizzard suit - I don't look good in yellow, haha!

Awww...they are so cute and they seem to have had fun!

A biohazard suit? Sounds like a budding Marine , to me. He'd be all squared away when it came time for NBC training. I did not do well in the gas chamber, when they made us take off our masks!

Sounds like all goes well with the family. You are a very even keel bunch of folks there.

Becca said...

I am intrigued that Reid wanted a biohazard suit for Christmas. What prompted that? Sometimes keeping things low key is really nice and relaxing!

I love the interests the boys have. So different and unique.

Have a wonderful week!
