Our Ballerina Princess

Abi danced in Idaho Ballet Theater's "Nutcracker" this year. She was both a Sugar Plum Princess and a Chinese Girl. This is her third year in ballet and she loves it. She is so graceful. We are so proud of her.

With only a week until Christmas I am remarkably relaxed. I trimmed my list this year and am soooo close to ready. I started feeling quite a bit better after Thanksgiving. So as long as I take my Zofran in the evening, I am good. I have 1 teacher present left to buy, a gift basket for a family party and Kris and I will go shopping for stocking stuffers after the 7th District Bar Party on Friday. Abi and Tal love to help wrap presents. We made our Christmas treats as a family just after Thanksgiving. The kids helped dip the chocolates, so they are not beautiful but they are tasty. Hope your holiday season is peaceful and merry.

We're not Grinchy

"One hundred lights per strand, two hundred fifty strands, for a grand total of 250,000 imported Italian twinkle lights." The Griswalds we are not, but we try. Didn't Kris do a nice job on our Christmas lights this year. He was sooooo close to buying an inflatable snowglobe. Maybe next year. I love our picture window, just perfect for showing off our Christmas tree.
