December

Yes, I know it is no longer December. I am not THAT sleep deprived. Here are some highlights of last month.
The family headed out to find a Christmas tree. Elie thought it would be a good idea to walk around the neighborhood and cut down a tree we liked. Matt and I decided that the neighbors might not love that idea. Some day we will be a family that goes into the woods and cuts down a tree together. This is not that year. Next year doesn't look good either. Maybe eventually.

Zoo lights is a family tradition. Eliana and Addilyn love it this year. We haven't been to the zoo in forever. Annabelle is in this picture too, she is in the wrap under my jacket where she slept happily the entire time. Dad came with us this year, too.


We have the book "The gingerbread Man" and Elie has been on my case to make some ginger bread of our own. To get off the hook of trying to find a yummy, workable GF ginger bread recipe, I told her it was a Christmas thing. Well, Christmas came and darn those 4 year olds with good memories. So we made and decorated ginger bread and it was actually really fun, despite the mess.

Snow. Eliana and Addilyn LOVE to play in it and we have had our share. Here is Eliana, being put to work.

Mom turned 60. I hope I look half as good as she does at 60. To celebrate, the girls got together and went to dinner and got our nails done. I love my family, we have so much fun together.

Oh, let's all go up to the mountains next year and get our trees. That would be fun! I don't like buying ours at a lot.
