First trip: CUBA!

We recently returned from our first out-of-country family trip. We went to Cayo Coco, Cuba with extended family. We had a blast!

Holden was such a good airplane traveller.... patient, happy, quiet!

The resort was amazing, the weather was good, and we had lots of fun with family. Here are some pics from our trip.

Holden and me

It's always nice to get a great photo of yourself with your kid. Usually I'm behind the camera, so it's great to have this picture. This was taken by a friend of mine at my "mommy group"'s Christmas party.

Holden starts skating lessons!

Holden started skating lessons this week. It was his first time ever on ice! It started off rocky, and we were prepared for resistance and a not-so-great experience, but it turned out GREAT. He was very wobbly at first, but by the end of the class he was able to shuffle along a little by just holding John's hand. Unfortunately I didn't get a video of that, I was too busy beaming ear-to-ear!

Here is a video of John helping Holden skate.

Christmas Pageant - Junior Kindergarten

Holden had his Christmas Pageant at school yesterday, his class sang "J'habille le Père Noël" and Holden was one of three kids dressed as Santa. Holden said "it felt good" to be Santa :)

In the group photo, Holden is on the far left.

Holden had his first ever "show and tell" at school yesterday. He decided to bring his T-Rex dinosaur. His teacher said he did GREAT and that he even did it in french!!
