This picture doesn't do it justice, but at the family Christmas party on Christmas Eve at uncle Ivo's and aunt Ivana's there was some music and serious dancing going on. Aaron started dancing with his cousin Valentina. He was even twirling her. Not sure where he learned how to dance, but he did a good job.
We did our best to put Christ into our Christmas. I repeated last year's idea of writing down as many of their good actions as I could and on Christmas after we acted out the birth of Jesus, we offered our gifts to Jesus by reading them to him. The kids' chest swelled with pride and I could see how happy they were with their good choices. The next day Aaron even gave me a back rub, foot rub, and lots of cuddles, and then asked me to write it down on his gifts to Jesus. You bet bud! Maybe if I write down all of Paolo's good actions he'll offer to do the same. :)
