the goods

Can you tell who was excited to have the snow melt?
Can you believe there is a smile on that toothless face even though one side of the track didn't work?
Who would have thought Santa could find a tree house?
Can a girl really have too many dolls?

Take down starts today. Then on to my favorite month, January. Fresh start. Can't wait.

Woodward baby #5 is a
Happy news.

Though I'm looking forward to the follow-up ultrasound in 8 weeks to check the kidneys (just like Kate) when she puts on some baby fat and looks a little less alien and a little more baby.

Weekend Snapshots

Dear Santa, I don't like you but I still want you to bring me a doll.
(Luckily we got a better shot earlier in the day when we went to visit Santa)

Monkey see, monkey do.
(of course I had to take a picture)

Brown paper packages tied up with string...
My solution to keep curious hands (mostly Kate) from the presents.
I knew there was a reason for all that empty space above the cabinets.

Chandler and Brian singing at the ward Christmas party.
Spectacular performance. Of course I'm a little biased.
A new favorite Christmas song.
(We'd tried all week long trying to convince Chandler to sing with him, bribing him with anything imaginable. Finally, Saturday morning I asked him if he'd sing if his grandmas came. "Yes." If only I knew it would be so simple. Why do I always forget it's the simple things that work?)

Looks like my wish for no school isn't going to happen.
I'm off to perfect some Christmas treats. Warm wishes.
