Christmastime, Cliffs Notes-style

Wow... another month-long interruption from this blog! And how do you summarize a month's worth of life, especially when that month included Christmas and all activities-Christmas? I guess through pictures!

A visit to a Special Somebody. Jack was a little unsure but didn't need me to sit with him. And a 'first' after 5 years of visiting Santa... NO LINE!!

Christmas programs. Same day, across town, but luckily at different times. Both girls did a great job.

The Nutcracker. My favorite Christmas tradition. This year was perfect. And I realized how much older the girls have gotten when I realized at the end of the day that this year was much more fun and much less work. Chad surprised the girls by bringing Jack down and joining us in Atlanta where we spent the night in a hotel, had a special dinner out on the town, and walked around the mall enjoying the decorations.

Quick ER trip. What's a holiday without a little sick? This poor guy had ear infections on Thanksgiving, bad case of croup on Christmas and strep on New Year's. 'Tis the season!

Boy toys!! Finally, this little boy has some things to play with that aren't pink, purple, and involving dolls!

Swing-set from all the grandparents.
This has proven to be the gift that keeps on giving!

Looking through these pictures, I see one similarity with all of Jack's pictures...the pacifier! I guess we need to work on breaking that habit! (or at least removing it before we take the picture!!)

Ho Ho Ho and see you soon!!
