Playroom Fun!

We finally put Jonathan's trampoline together and he has been a jumping machine! The funny thing is he always wants us to watch him jump. The boy is very happy to be a jumping bean!

In Christopher's class, they have started a project studying Native American cultures. He is very excited about it and came home the other day and built his own tipi! He built it himself and I wrapped it for him with sheets. Then he set up his own little "camp" inside complete with a campfire, bow and arrow, and other supplies.

Skytop


We spent this past weekend celebrating lots of birthdays up in the Poconos at Skytop Lodge! We celebrated Grandpa Eric, Aunt Dabney and Poppy, Elsie and Bennett's birthdays. It was a fun weekend with lots of winter activities and a lot of swimming (indoors of course) too!

 The cousins had a great time together as usual! Here they are at the fancy restaurant...
 J swimming with the girls...
 The infamous game room...
The boys getting ready to ski...

 Their first ski lesson...

 Skating at the semi-outdoor rink...
 Jonathan's first time on the ice!
Jonathan, of course, found lots of vacuums and was very happy...
 And he was exhausted and fell asleep at dinner...
And look who we found on TV while we were waiting for the breakfast place to open!
 J was happy to listen to some U2 at the airport when our initial flight got delayed...
And I meant to post this picture before but this was awhile back. Jonathan got some Daniel Tiger trolley pajamas (which he wore for all of 5 minutes!).

Overheard

A conversation between Jonathan and I this morning...

J: Mommy, why is Christmas and Thanksgiving over? I want them.

K: Well Jonathan, we have more holidays coming up. Valentine's Day is soon and so is Martin Luther King Day. Martin Luther King was a cool guy. He did lots of great things.

J: Did he have a vacuum?

K: I'm sure he did, buddy, I'm sure he did.

Animal Presentation


Christopher and his class have been working very hard for a couple months on their "Animals of Missouri" projects. Each child studied an animal that can be found in Missouri (as well as other parts of the country). They researched it, wrote a report, constructed their animal, and also worked in groups based on their animal's habitat. Chris studied the coyote and was part of the prairie group. Here is his group presentation followed by his own part...

The Holidays

The Wogloms of Kansas would like to wish all of you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy New Year! We had a lovely holiday, the boys have officially watched more movies in a two week period than they have in their entire lives, Chris went with us to see Star Wars and claimed it was the "best movie ever," we had a great visit with the Titus Family, I turned 40 and now we are hibernating inside because of the Arctic temperatures outside. It was a good break! Here are a few pics (although I didn't go crazy taking too many). I will also start off with Christopher playing "Joy to the World" at our Christmas Eve service at church...

Christmas Eve Day

We've had a lovely Christmas Eve day. After playing in the snow, the boys made gingerbread houses, J vacuumed, Chris made cool stuff and the doggies snuggled together... Now we await Christmas Eve service (where Chris is playing piano) and Santa's visit!









It Does Snow in Kansas!


Just in time for Christmas, we woke up to snow this morning! The boys were very excited and, once again, we were seriously underprepared for how much Christopher's feet grew this past year. Looks like we'll be getting him new boots next week. In the meantime, he is wearing my old boots. Jonathan was just fine size wise but he spent all of five minutes in the snow before he decided it was too cold and messy...

Athena, on the other hand, was having some serious fun in the snow with Holly! Recently we figured out that Athena is most likely from Mississippi, which means she most likely has never experienced snow before. Either way, she really seemed to like it!
