I know, it's been a while since I've updated, I apologize. What can I say, I also still have a few Christmas cards that haven't been mailed either (big surprise, huh?). Well, let me officially say Happy New Year to everyone who reads this post. Here are a few pictures from our family's Christmas.
Christmas Eve at my Aunt & Uncle's home, we put their PJs on before we left, hoping they would fall asleep on the way home. No such luck!
D's mom come visit us for a few days.
It was great for the kids to have both grandmothers together for Christmas.
We've been very busy over the past couple of months or so. We took the kids to see "The Nutcracker" at the Gwinnett Center for the Performing Arts. By the end of the performance, e told me "I want to be in THAT ballet." I hope we can get her into either some dance classes or gymnastics classes soon. I think everyone enjoyed the performance; it wasn't as good as seeing it at The Fox, but we had great seats and it was closer to home.
We also made it to Stone Mountain a couple of times during the holiday - saw the Snow Fairy make it snow, rode the Stone Mountain Express (decorated for Christmas), watched a couple of performances and saw the 20 minute "Reader's Digest" version of The Polar Express.
My brother and his family came for a few hours the Saturday after Christmas. Then my sister and her family came for a the weekend of New Year's. Speaking of New Year's, the kids both stayed up 'til midnight (well, with a little help from us grown-ups). I think e was a little disappointed that nothing great and wonderful happened at midnight (maybe it will help her to understand that she isn't really missing anything when we send her to bed). At about 12:01am, d went to bed without any fuss at all.
My sister and I put together a little scrapbook for my Aunt in LA. I'll post it on here when I get a chance. I need to go for now - post more later, I promise.
