Today we celebrated Solstice. It was wonderful. We had just a few gifts each, Loren bought the kids both bikes, I got them socks and books. We had a nice brunch and went for a walk to the park (Aiden rode his bike, he's still getting it down and really just walked with the bike between his legs). I can't wait to do it again next year. Last night we lit off fireworks to kind of symbolize the return of light. I found an old light stick and Aiden ran around like a chicken with his head cut off with it. The simple things in life. We had Aiden's bike covered with a blanket this morning and he has been asking for a bike so he figured out that he was getting one, as you can see...
Natalie couldn't have cared less, she was happy to play with the ribbon and try to play with Aiden's spokes. She does like her trike though. She's not quite tall enough for it but it wont be long. I am really happy with the bikes we found for the kids. We will get alot of miles out of both of them.
The kids and I are off to Portland for Christmas week. We hope you all have a very merry holiday season. Welcome winter and thank you for your return sun. I can't wait for warm days in the yard and summer days working in the garden. Happy happy and lots of Love from us!!
