The December Blog Post

Hmmm... we did lots of stuff in December but none of it made it to the blog.  I'll just touch on the highlights:

Daughter date night continues to be a success.  The girls love taking turns dressing up and spending an evening alone with Mommy and Daddy.

In early December, we added a 2nd kitty to our household.  This is Ralphie.  She's a one year old female from a local animal rescue.  Like our other kitty, she's small -- just 7 pounds.  She's super sweet!

We saw these adorable reindeer cupcakes on M3's blog and just had to make some of our own.  I think they came out pretty cute!   Tootsie roll ears, Nilla Wafer  snout, m&m nose....

We brushed the donut crumbs from our hands and face and posed for our 2010 family portrait.  Always a funny endeavour because we have to put the camera on the tripod and use the timer so all of us can be in the photo.   Lots of trial and error and silliness!  I should post the outtakes!  Oh, and you might have noticed that I cut my hair.  :)

I guess Santa must have bumped into the tripod and accidentally set off the camera timer because look at what we found on our camera on Christmas morning!   There were a couple of other photos too and Gwen and Maddy were really shocked and amazed when I handed them the photographic evidence that Santa is real!  It was more than worth the time I spent on <this site> at 3AM!

Christmas morning was the usual mixture of joyful shrieks, hugs, and shredded wrapping paper and we all played with our new toys through the weekend then hopped on a plane and flew to Santa Fe to spend the rest of the year with extended family.   Beautiful sunny (cold) days to start then lots of snow!
