This was a really cute song!  She sang about Santa bringing her brother a big ol' box of rocks and HE sang to santa about bringing his sister a box of rocks.
Cute link to youtube (above) if you'd like to hear part of the song!

CC's favorite light was the above cascading waterfall of blue lights.

Little People Ice Skate!!!

With all the freezing temperatures, we had some fun with ICE!
Ben and the girls created a "Little People Ice Rink". If you have an ice rink, then you of course have to serve hot chocolate. So, the "Igloo Cafe" was constructed from ice cubes. AND the rink was in the country, so you got to go on a field trip while riding the bus.

Baby Jesus Skates...

Joseph orders hot chocolate from the shepherd at the Igloo Cafe.

Truly loved by our girls!
(special thanks to their creative daddy)

Reindeer Cones!

Super cute (and easy) reindeer cones from our neighbors!  Inside each cone was enough chocolate and marshmallows to make a cup of hot cocoa with a sugar cone for dipping!

Our girls loved them!

Liam's Senior Photos

Brad and Kathy asked me to take Liam's Senior Portraits. I admit to trembling at the knees, emphasizing full disclosure of amateur photography and of course agreeing to give it a try.   It was a cold and DREARY day and completely fogged in across Lake Union.  In the end, I had a lot of fun.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Liam's sister, Rosie!

The whole gang!
