Today is the last week for the wonderful Pairs meme hosted by Helena. It's been a lot of fun and I've managed to come up with a pair every week. I'm looking forward to next year's meme, Snap. You can check out the pairs for this week and some information about Snap at Helena's blog. A huge thanks to Helena for making this possible all year long.
Today is also one little boy's fourth birthday. We've been opening presents little by little all day long. As I type this his dad and Grandpa are putting together a big boy bed. The double bed is going to be a big change from his less-than-single sized bed he's been in for the last couple of years.
We started the morning with pancakes.
Chicago has gotten some snow in the last few days, and Caleb couldn't wait to get outside with his sled. They have a flat yard, but somehow his dad managed to get the sled to slide across the yard by itself. But it was throwing snow at each other that proved to be the most fun.
So my final pair is Caleb: INSIDE and OUTSIDE on his birthday.
I forgot to take a photo of his birthday card before I left, and he's saving his cards and one last present to open after dinner. I'll be back eventually (finding time to edit photos and post is proving tricky) with that and posts from Christmas. I still have quite a few pages left to do in my Christmas Journal once we get back home, so it's likely you'll be seeing Christmas here well into January.
