P52: One last week around the sun

Wow. The year is really coming to a close. I couldn't be happier to have spent the end of the year with Avi, Ben, and the boys. Making memories to the end of 2013, for sure. 

This week really has been fun. Noam is at the perfect age (ok, I say that every trip) and Ronan is just a little smush. We've had tons of fun this week and had a bunch of firsts! 

Monday, Avi and I took Noam ice skating. Avi and I grew up skating and thought Noam would like to try too...yeah...not so much. He screamed most of the time, oh well. I enjoyed being back on the ice - even dusted some of my skills off. Best part, was after we left the rink, Noam kept saying "I loved ice skating, it was so much fun!" At least he had a good memory from it!

Mr. Ronan had a ton of first this week too. He cut his first tooth (drool was very abundant) and he figured out how to sit up! It's a whole new world for him and we started bets on when he'll crawl. My bet, any day now. 

Then, to continue on our active adventures, Ben and I took the kids (well, Noam really) to a trampoline zone. The last time I was anywhere near a trampoline with Ben, I got a "new" nose so of course, well, yeah we clearly haven't learned anything! We all jumped and jumped, safely, and it was so cute to see Noam having a BLAST! 

Highlight of the week: Every part? is that a cop out? Seriously, though, just getting such special time with the littles is a gigantic highlight.

Favorite teaching moment: not having my work email pushing notifications to my phone. A true vacation. 

Random-osity: Noam is obsessed with Kombucha. Every time we go into the market, he runs off and gets a few bottles. A little hippie!  
I have decided to start a link-up in 2014! It will be on Mondays and be called:
 "The Good. The Random. The Fun."
Come link up something good, random, or fun about your week, or all 3! I hope you'll join me!!
(no code, just copy and paste!)

Hope to see you on Monday, January 6th!

Love that you had such a great time with the kids. Glad you did not grow a new nose this time. Such cute "memory" of the fun ice skating time. I remember a similar skating event with my girls when they were little. Such fun!

Wonderful to feel your happiness oozing out of every pore!! (my daughter had a friend when she was little...they used to cry until the moms would let them get together. They'd fight almost the whole time they "played" with each other. Then they'd talk about how much they love each other and when can they have another sleep over/play date. Used to confuse us mamas...I think that because kids let out all their honest emotions in real time, they tend to hang on to the good bits...idk...your story just brought me back a bit!)
