Christmas Recap

by

Dear Roman,

Christmas was especially sweet this year because it meant we got to be with you for three full weeks! Winter break off of school is the best! We made sure we took advantage of every second of your free time and went ice skating, saw the gingerbread houses downtown, the trains at Seattle Center, Teddy Bear room at The Fairmont, built a gingerbread house, made ornaments, saw The Nutcracker and of course took in Snowflake Lane- twice. It even snowed a tiny bit on December 20th and you were able to sled across the street at the park with your neighborhood buddies. The season went all too fast!

This year you found a love for Elfie- our Elf on the Shelf. Each morning the highlight was looking for him around the house and reading the little notes he left you. Almost every night you’d write back to him- usually with questions or something like, “I love you Elfie. Love Roman.” You even made him a Rainbow Loom bracelet and he made one for you. This year you were a believer in the magic of the season.

Santa brought you a few Lego sets and some cool games. Your favorite present was from Dad- his old IPod and hand held video camera. You are growing up and your interests are maturing.

After Christmas we headed to Suncadia for New Years. We met two other families who are also your best buddies and man was it fun. Being with your friends is so important to you these days so getting to be on vacation with them was mind blowing. You guys went swimming, played on water slides, went ice skating, roasted marshmallows by a camp fire, watched movies in bed, ate breakfast together at the hotel restaurant and then went snow tubing. Lucky kids!
