Orders were read and the kids were all able to replace his Captain bars for gold oak leaves, one on each shoulder and one on the cap. (Jacob did the one on the hat with a little help but I was unable to get a picture of that one.)

Jacob was most secure having both of his hands held by Daddy most of the time but Elizabeth helped out a little bit and was a great big sister.
He even tried a little on his own but hanging onto the wall is only so much fun for so long.
AJ did great for his first time ice skating. He followed the wall most of the time and would briefly let go here and there. By the time we got ready to leave, he was able to go quite a ways without falling or holding onto the wall.
Elizabeth seemed like an old pro the second she was out on the ice. She fell quite a bit but got right back up and was back at it right away.
They are all already requesting to go again and again. Too bad the rink is closing in a week! Good times and good memories....

Santa made his arrival on a fire truck (in Air Force fashion) with all of the kids cheering. Once inside, each child was called up to see Santa by family. Elizabeth ran right up there but the boys were no where to be seen. Once AJ heard that there was a present involved he very cautiously approached the ol' man but Jacob would have nothing to do with him.
All of the kids received books and I would have to say that AJ liked his for sure He has slept with his book every night since he received it.
What lucky kids we have to be able to participate in activities such as this. Merry Christmas!

Well at least it was this morning when we decided to haul the kiddos out to the Niceville Christmas parade. We thought we were being clever in our parking decision but it turned out we are at the end of the route past the point of the parade ending.
So, instead of sitting in the car with the heat on, we braved the elements and headed out to see the parade. While waiting for festivities, the kiddos huddled up close to Daddy before they turned into little ice cubes. Let me tell you, Jacob was miserable cold.
