We always take the boys Ice Skating the week between Christmas and New Years. We make a day of it. We go into the city, see Aunt Martha Jane and eat lunch. Mason always skates and I always take the pictures. It works out good. A good time was had by all.
Mason took control of the Gingerbread house building this year. He showed me up! I always have to use a glue gun to make it stay together, but not Mason. He used icing and it turned out great! I was really impressed. Guess who can do that from now on every year.
Another thing we did one night was surprise the boys at bed time with a ticket to go and look at Christmas lights complete with hot chocolate and popcorn. It was fun and will definitely be a new yearly tradition.
Here is our Christmas 2012 in pictures. We had a relaxing Christmas in Spartanburg this year. We went up on Sunday afternoon and the days flew by. It was a wonderful couple of days and something we look forward to every year.
