That's a wrap

OK truth be told I didn't catch quite every day but I sure did catch a lot. Here we have Elijah's work in progress of a huge marble track, Emily building, and the kids on the front steps. Tomorrow I post my favorites of the year. I think for 2011 I'm just going to aim for weekly updates.

Snow + Grandparents

I guess technically it was a white Christmas as the white did start falling before midnight but we were shocked to wake up to quite a bit of snow the day after Christmas. Amusingly my parents were driving up and made better time then usual despite the snow. The kids played in the snow for about an hour and were done. When Grandparents arrived we did another Christmas of sorts with Lee winning the prize for best Elijah reaction when the last gift he opened this year was a baybladde. All gifts have been well loved though. We've had a great break but busy so today we are resting as we will be for the next few days.

snow angel

Not quite but Emily did make an angel craft at the Y and it did snow. Elijah opted not to go out bc it was raining and there really wasn't enough snow to do much with.

slacking off

Elijah did his Nutcracker dance this week. He was great but I am amazed at the way some people let their children behave.

looking a bit like Christmas

We finally got the Christmas tree up this weekend. I'm not much into decorating for Christmas but the kids had fun decorating the tree and Emily wants us to turn it off any time she sees it off. Its getting a little more Charlie Brownish each year but in a strange way its grown on me. We bought it when Elijah was little and Martha Stewart had just gone to prison causing Kmart to put all of her products on sale.

The other picture is her finished Tangled dress. Haven't let her try it on yet so no action pictures.

sewing and glasses

Neil got new glasses. He was due for new ones anyways but about a week ago he picked his up after a shower and the bridge snapped. He decided to try sturdier frames like Elijah and I this time.

I got Emily's Minnie dress and bathrobe finished. The little bugger won't wear the robe and isn't allowed to wear the dress till Disney. Its a little big but will have a shirt under it so should be fine and fit for a while.

A Christmas preview for Angela.

I took Emily to JoAnns with me this week. She asked me to make her a "tangleded" dress. Really how do you say no to a 3 year old holding a bolt of satin as big as they are. Plus I really liked the dress in the movie and sometimes is fun to be really creative. Hopefully I'll finish it tonight. I think she's going to wear it when we eat in the castle.
