Together with our friends we got together and had a Christmas Party. It was a BLAST!! Even Santa showed up....and boy were the kids surprised! We hung out, ate some pizza, and then headed to the ice rink to do some skating.
This was the first time we had taken the kids, and it has been awhile for me as well. We had a ton of fun! Emmah took to skating really well. She even did some skating without any help. Jake needed some help, but he had fun anyway. He even asked later when were going skating again! It was definetly a time to remember and will have to be an annual event.

Tonight we went to Zeeland and rode on a horse drawn wagon through the city. It was so much fun! We didn't tell the kids where we were going and they LOVED it! On our short journey we sang Christmas carols (and yes all of us sang!) and enjoyed the lights as well as the big Christmas cards. The kids enjoyed the ride and loved petting the horses too!

On Saturday we took the kids to see Caledonia basketball, Cousin Todd is the coach. We have taken Emmah, but this was Jake's first time. Jake kept yelling at Todd from across the court, during the game (he tried so hard for him to hear him, but he just wasn't loud enough over the game!) We had a great time. The kids were AWESOME cheerleaders and if team spirit could have won the game the Scots would have had it. They did a great job and put forth a great effort.
I have a feeling we have many more games ahead of us!

Once we finished dinner we headed to Mimi & Papa's for some cake and ice cream. Yummy!!! We hung out and just had a great time with each others company. Playing some fun games in the process! Overall a good time was had by all! My favorite moment of the night was when Jake sang his own solo of "Happy Birthday" to GG! Emmah eventually joined in, but boy was it so cute!
