This month has been full of Christmas fun. I took the boys to the Oakland House to see Santa, as we do every year. First, we listened to a story and watched a puppet show.
When Patrick woke up from his nap the other day, he and Jack played school. Jack looked at a picture book and asked Patrick to identify each object. It was really cute.
We've been to the Magic House several times recently.
I tried to get a picture with Patrick and then with Jack in the little hall of mirrors. The pictures didn't turn out well, but I like them anyway.
Jim got to go to the Christmas celebration at Jack's preschool. In the pageant, he was the innkeeper as well as a Wise Man.
We went to Branson for a couple nights. Jim had been there before, but the rest of us hadn't. I didn't take many pictures. It was nice and relaxing during this hectic month. We went to a Cowboy Christmas Show.
On a mild day recently, we met some friends at the playground for some outdoor fun.

Patrick loves to wear a hat. He will wear it outside, inside, anywhere. He even wants to sleep with one on sometimes. He was wearing this hat the other day and Jim took his picture because he looked like a skater.
Patrick is not nearly as obsessed with trains as Jack is, but he still had a good time.
Yesterday we met friends at the Whittle Shortline RR. Andrew, Caeleigh and Jack pushed trains around the tracks.
