Merry Christmas (again!)

Advent is over! Christmas has arrived! Santa has come, the feasts prepared and consumed, the presents opened... Jack got his beloved knights; Trey comics with his wig (or draws) while Taylor leans against her heated massaging reading-pillow and works on her ipad; Coco actually wears clothes in the house for this occasion - and Alex now has three more princess outfits to wear (here she is Belle)! A successful and fun day! Merry Christmas!

Christmas is Coming! Christmas is Coming!

The excitement is building! Alex has practiced filling-and-emptying her stocking with all her princess figures, and Jack seriously works the Advent Calendar (eating the chocolate, of course!)and counted the packages under the tree... Here Alex models her "princess nightie" - her first experience of nightgown (her comment: "But - where are the pants?")

Cookie Decorating!

'Tis the season for...decorating cookies! Alex ate as much (more?) frosting as she put on the cookies, of course, and the kitchen was as sprinkled as the cookies, but a good time was had by all! (And we can't forget our Christmas glasses!)

Christmas Party at Wilshire

We went to the annual Christmas Party at the Wilshire Country Club, and it was "Kid Heaven" - face painting, balloon sculptures, puppet shows, magic tricks, carolers, and, of course, a visit with Santa! Top it all off with a chocolate fountain for dessert ("I want to dip it myself!") and what more could one ask for? A great time was had by all!
