The girls both got those new digital cameras for kids this Christmas! I don't know who's more excited, them or me. Downloading the pictures they take is like walking in their shoes! I've included the highlights of Christmas Day from Hannah's point of view.
1. The flatware.
2. Mommy cooking.
3. The stockings hung up.
4. Grace about to destroy the wall. (I think this was meant more as a blackmail photo for later use.)
p.s. No walls were destroyed.
The girls really enjoyed Patheon's Kids Christmas Party this year. They had their faces painted as Unicorns, jumped in the blow up castle, got balloon hats, gifts, and pictures with Santa. This is the first year that Hannah was actually willing to participate in the picture with Santa although it did take some advance discussion. Finally she agreed that she would be in the picture, but would not sit on his knee, only stand in front of his legs. I'm not partial to making children sit on strange people's knees, so I didn't force the issue. What I've concluded from this experience - Hannah is going to be one heck of a negotiator one day.
Here is the video of the girl's Daycare Christmas Concert. They were dressed as Christmas Cakes. What was the most amazing to Adam and I is how much they've changed in one year. They actually followed some choreography this year!
