December started off like it normally does with the Brockett Family Bake Day! This year we combined it with the family Christmas since it's hard for a lot of people to make it to two events in one busy month.
The following weekend we had the FBT family Christmas gathering at our house. It was really fun, but we sure have become a big group! We need a bigger house! :)
Most of the little ones- having fun in (trashing) Kendall's room.
We also had breakfast with Santa at the Safari Park that weekend. It was a good time and the kids even sat on Santa's lap without us! This was the first time they were brave enough. Grady asked for a magic set and Kendall asked for a game called "Jumping Jack."
Grady had a few holiday performances at school. He's gotten better, but still doesn't like to be the center of attention. He did a great job though, and look how cute he is! His first dance with a girl!
His class also did an evening performance for the families, but unfortunately Grady came down with a fever and a horrible croup cough the night before the performance. We needed up staying home from school and spending the day at the doctor and sleeping. I was so sad that he had to miss it (he was too), but he managed to make it to school for the last day of the quarter and his teacher was so sweet, she had the kids perform the whole routine for me and the other 5th grade teachers! It was adorable- especially since it was pajama day and the kids looked so cute in their jammies!
The Saturday after school was out was also the last day of their Soccer Shots program. Both kids loved playing soccer and learned a lot from their coaches!
