A Journey with Love and Laughter

Read about our family as we journey through life as a family, with siblings, school and spina bifida, and lots of fun and laughter along the way!

It's a Holly Jolly Christmas

We had 3 days full of Christmas family, presents, dancing, music, food and fun.
It was perfect - we even got a little bit of sleep in there.

It started with opening the last day of the advent calender - and some fighting over who got to fly Santa around with the presents


We checked in with Norad to see where Santa was - and even pulled out our globe to follow him.

Christmas eve was spent dancing


Boy did Nick have the moves!
Around and around and around he went, and up and down. If his legs were still, his hands were going, going, going. I have a new appreciation for Katy Perry! Because those kids loved her songs!


which was perfect - because it tired Nickolas out so much he was fast asleep when we got home!

And the kids were all ready to open their present in the morning - in matching pj's of course!


We brought our favorite toys to visit Grandma Ridding and have a big family dinner


Nick got to scare everyone being a cross between a dinosaur and Santa Claus.
And walking between everything. Roar!


Now that the kids are enjoying games - there were a couple of grandma's who were all ready to start playing.



We ended our 3 day Christmas with the Bartley Christmas on boxing day.

Nickolas was very excited for Christmas this year. And Katheryn, going to a catholic school, knew all about baby Jesus and his birthday.
Everyone was (mostly) happy and playing. They showed off to all of the family - Nickolas standing up straight and dancing - everywhere. Katheryn counting to 100 (and beyond).
 

Nickolas even wished Baby Peter Pan (it works for a boy or a girl) Merry Christmas!

I hope your holidays were filled with as much family fun as ours!
