Ok, so we didnt go over the river, or through any woods, but we did go to Gramma's house. The Wednesday before Christmas Gramma was a brave soul and had ALL the grandkids over to decorate Christmas cookies. Thats 19 grandchildren, give or take a few who couldnt make it. Anyways, it was alot of kids decorating cookies and running around the house. And definately alot of fun!

Each of the quads got their own new ornament to hang on the tree. They already have a stuffed animal that corresponds with the ornament. Connor has Pooh Bear, Dylan has Tigger, Brooklyn has Piglet and Hailey has Eyore.
They were so excited and dove right in. I had to quickly step in and pull out the ornaments not suitable for the kiddos to hang. In hindsight, next year I will pull out the ornaments before setting the box on the couch and letting them "have at it".
Hailey and Connor were the best ornament hangers. Which doesnt suprise me. They are more focused and spent quite a while hanging the ornaments. Where as Dylan and Brooklyn are more active and cant be bothered to spend more than a couple minutes putting some ornaments on a tree when there are other things to be done.
Hailey found one particular branch and decided to hang ALL her ornaments there.
Connor was very particular about where he put his ornaments.

We got some of these balloons a while back at a birthday party and the kiddos had such a blast with them I looked around and found them at Walmart for 2 for $1. They are great to pull out and blow up when having an off day or when we just need something different to do. They throw them, catch them, roll over them and Dylan has even gotten good at punching them. (Which is what you are supposed to do with the rubber band around your finger.) In the video below they have figured out they can bounce on top of them as well when holding on to the couch. Oh such simple pleasures!

A new treat this year, we got to go on a tractor pull ride around the farm.
We even hit up the bounce house and slide. Talk about FUN TIMES!
