Pre- and Post-Christmas new and old traditions
getting decorated like a tree with the Daisies
About to see SANTA! Same ole Santa, 11 years later. This was one of those nights where the kids were battling non-stop - we literally had to dry their tears and yell at them to smile as they walked up to see Santa
Josefina getting a MUCH needed new 'do (Mema and Tate went on a special date, including lunch and a giant cookie)
Marshmallow making with a good friend - and we didn't even hate each other afterwards! And we weren't even that sticky!! Tara, a new tradition is born!
The annual hot cocoa-then-run-around-the-courthouse with our first friends in our town. Love this family.
Tate's favorite, bubble wrap!
Just Dance 4 - SO MUCH FUN!!!!!
Oh, Kit. Movie, doll, our hearts.
Bubble wrap in its unwound glory
Roller skating fun at a cool '50s-ish place! $5 per person, includes rental! They'll be seeing more of us, for sure.
David skates HARD! He left chunks of wheel all over the rink (that Smith picked up)
Dog sitting for some giant beauties - love these guys. The box on the sofa has a Smith inside it!
And today, New Year's Eve, has been a delightfully simple day. Smith has a good friend over, I'm going to do some sewing for the bunkbed Tate got for her American Girl dolls (pillows and sheets to match the quilts I made), Tate's watching a movie. Tonight we'll have some homemade sushi and homemade pizza, and CHOCOLATE FONDUE. Oh yeah.
