Skateboards and Ear Piercings
All of the kids have skateboards now thanks to Santa and CJ. Our neighbors have 2 boys and they have all sorts of boy toys including skateboards. I could not keep my kids away from them. CJ saved up her allowance so she could buy a skateboard and of course, the little ones wanted one too. Good thing Santa knows exactly what to buy the kids.
Over the Christmas break, the girls got their ear's pierced and thanks to Mia this time, both girls got them. Mia has been wanting her ear's pierced so bad. She loved to parade around wearing pretend earrings. One day she says to Ben, "I can't wait to have holes in my ears like Mom" as she holds up a pair of my earrings. Ben told her she could get them pierced while she was in Utah and CJ who previously didn't want to get them because it would hurt decided that she too would do it. Let's just hope Xander doesn't want to get his ears pierced too!
On an unrelated note, Ben took the beautiful sunset that is our header when we were stopped at a gas station in Nevada. I am learning how to process my pictures in RAW now and these are my first experiments.
