A special time for daddy and Noah : )

The other night, Daddy and Noah sit down to do a little Christmas Craft : ) 
We have been taking a day  once a week to spend some special time with Noah! : ) I mean like a "mommy and noah time" , & a "daddy and noah time":)

Noah Loved it!
They made this adorable penquin ornament : ) that now has a home on our tree : ) My mom got the craft at Hobby Lobby for cheap and Noah enjoyed identifying the"hat" "eyes" nose & mouth" : )
Hope our family is having a Happy Holiday Season SO far!
