A "Day" in the Park

Nothing like a warm, sunny day over Christmas break! We took time to go to the park as a family.

Anna loves the tire swing.

Monika looks great in her sunglasses!

Leah not only enjoying the park, but her new Sony Walkman cell phone at the same time! Way to multi-task, girl!!

Aletta enjoys communicating at the park the old fashioned way--not by cell phone--but by "park pipe telephone!"

Thanks Granny Day!!!

Granny Day made beautiful aprons for each of the girls for Christmas!

Don't be fooled by Rachel's lack of enthusiam in the picture! She's a bundle of excitement, and a baker at heart!

Anna's showing off not only her apron, but some culinary creation as well!

Okay...its really a maraca, but it sounded good, didn't it?

Aletta's ready to go help make breakfast! Pillsbury Orange Sweet Rolls!

Would have been home made cinnamon rolls, but we broke the bread machine, and couldn't make the dough.

Christmas Day!!

Santa Finally Came!!!

And it was time to open Presents!!!

Or at least look at them, and smile for the camera!!!

Christmas Eve Tradition

In keeping with Day tradition, Christmas Eve was filled with Christmas light viewing, a Christmas play (written and directed by Leah, of course!), a few Christmas carols, and the opening of the Christmas Eve Pajama Presents!

Winter Wonderland!

I can't believe it! We've had some great cold weather in December, and even a good Snow Storm!!

Here's the house, decorated for Christmas, and few snowflakes caught in action.

Monika and I took the chance to build a snowman at 8:30pm. Sara came out just in time to add the nose, and jump into the picture. All glory, no work.

Anna's Thanksgiving Turkey

Anna sure makes a great turkey!
Apple, raisins, cranberries, marshmallows, and toothpicks also come in handy!
