There were so many Christmas-related events in December but we did squeeze in some other events in the month.
Aubrey's cheerleading squad wrapped up their season with a party and awards banquet. After all the drama that went along with this season, I was glad to see it end. Aubrey was pretty sad about it ending, but glad football season was over for her.
The MICS cheerleaders had their mini cheerleading event for K-2 early this year. Aubrey was excited to get to cheer more and they added in stunts that stopped this momma's heart for a few beats.
We also convinced Aubrey to pull her last top tooth that was hanging by a thread and she got many comments about asking for her two top teeth over Christmas.
The last newsworthy event of the month involved every single member of our family being sick. Mason started out with another ear infection. But, after some extra loving and a day of antibiotics, he was back to normal.
The rest of us getting sick was not cute enough to get pictures for. Aubrey, Todd, and I all got a nasty stomach virus the day after Mason's ear infection and it was bad. I honestly don't think I would wish that mess on my worst enemy. Luckily, it all started on a Friday and we were good to go by Sunday. We managed to clean and disinfect our house with a whole can of Lysol after that event because I had no desire to keep that mess in our house.
For New Year's Eve we let Aubrey stay up to watch the ball drop on tv and I was surprised she managed to be wide open and full of energy until about 11:30. Todd and I were both struggling to keep our eyes open, but we all made it to midnight. It was fun to spend that time with her and I can't wait until the whole family can go out together and do something fun.
So, that was our December. It was such a busy month but still managed to be my favorite of the year. Despite the few days of sickness, it was overall fun and exciting and lots of good memories were made. We can't wait to see what 2016 holds for us!
