One of the many benefits of being a teacher is having a Christmas break. Now that I am a mommy and a teacher having these days off from work is even more special. It gives me extra time to spend with my favorite little man!
The day after Christmas we did a little shopping for some after Christmas sales and then the weather finally warmed up a little bit and Caleb was able to play on his new toy he got for Christmas!
We still need to work on the whole concept of the slide :) It was more fun to climb up than to slide down apparently!
Climbing up the stairs
Doing a little swinging
The weekend after Christmas Daddy stayed home from the hunting club because it was yucky weather and we decided to go eat a big breakfast and take Caleb on his first trip to the McWane Science Center.
Waiting on Breakfast
Pulling on the rope really hard to pull himself up
This was so cool...it was a huge Light Bright which was one of my favorite toys as a child!
Making the balls float in the stream of water
The following week we did a little more shopping with Aunt Jill before Mommy had to go back to work!
He is such a fun little shopper
We spent our last night of our Christmas break ringing in the New Year with our friends Chad and Mandi and their cutie Makayla. These two monkeys had so much fun playing together and we enjoyed eating, relaxing and catching up with friends.
After all of the Christmas fun it was time for mommy to return to work and little man to go see his friends at Mrs. Kay's. Gosh I sure do love having days to hang out with Caleb, but I am blessed to have a job that allows me to have holidays off, weekends off and the summer off! Let's start 2014 on a positive outlook :)
