So far, we have tried out two games with them.1. Putting the blocks onto the color cards- Jubilee is mastering this one pretty quickly.2. Matching the same color blocks together- this one is difficult for her, but not frustrating- so just right!! (As you can see many of the shades are very close, so it is meant to make her concentrate and to develop her eyes.)

G-green grapes and green cucumber
H- don’t remember what she had, but she ate it on the hippopotamus placemat
I- an icee (orange juice and loads of ice put into the blender) and some crackers

read about the letter in Dr. Suess’ Dictionary, pick out the letter from the alphabet poster upstairs, put the letter into the magnet puzzle on the fridge,
practice writing it on the write and wipe cards and placemat,
and finish with a snack beginning with that letter. Yesterday, we had apples and apricots, today banana and bread with butter, sitting outside on a blanket. (Jubilee cut up her banana and spread the butter herself)

Jubi made Stephen a “Daddy special box” for him to keep things that she makes for him. I’m sure it will be filled with treasured things in the years to come.
Jubilee certainly enjoyed getting presents!
Stephen made a corn hole set for me (a bean bag tossing yard game which is much more tricky to play than you would think). I was so excited, and we have played it nearly every evening since then!
I did manage to snap a of pic of the dessert table though:
It was so nice to be a part of a big family Christmas dinner, even if it was not with our familes. Hope everyone had great Christmas celebrations too!
