December Catch-up

December turned out to be just as busy as the months before. The weekends were filled with Hockey, of course. Ben had several more opportunities to officiate some games and is feeling more confident every time. At first he wasn't sure where to stand, what to call etc.... Now, he mentioned that it might even help his hockey playing. Andrew and Ethan's team is doing better this year. They have already won more games than they did all of last year. Ethan has scored about 15 goals this season. Ben's team is struggling a little this year. He hasn't played that many games yet, so we will see how the season pans out.

Nadia took a gymnastics class at City hall this fall.   She LOVED it!   She has been doing cartwheels and handstands all over the house.  

The weather has been really strange this December.   We have very little snow,  not even enough to cover the grass.    Early in the month we had about a 1/4 inch that melted immediately.  Nadia took advantage of it though and make a little "mountain"  that lasted about 1 day.  

The kids have been home from school for the whole week.   This is a photo of  Nadia and Ethan heading  to school for their winter parties. 

Finally a little more snow arrived on Thursday.   This time maybe 1/2inch.  The kids did their best to enjoy the little we had.  Ethan and Nadia tried the sleds and we even broke out the skis from Oma &  Opa.   Unfortunantly,  there was not really enough snow for winter fun.   We actually gave up and headed to the Bowling Alley.

That was our December in a nutshell.
