Ice Skating at Embarcadero Center

We took the kids ice skating today, none of them had ever been, and even though nobody except Brian could skate very well, we had fun!  It also helped that it was a nice day out, not cold!




BART Entertainment

videoWe took BART to SF today and had some on board entertainment! 

Bella and Luna

Here's Bella and Luna on Christmas, it is funny watching them play together, Bella (my parents new pup) is such a little spaz, Luna sometimes doesn't know what to make of her! 


Christmas

Pictures from Christmas: Noelle received a drawing pad from her Uncle Dan and Aunt Jami, you can see the beginnings of her drawing here.  Of course it is a Monster High character.  Then we have my three kids reading a story together, I do love it when they all get along, if only for a moment!  The kids had fun opening all their presents, Great Grandma gave them a keyboard, I uploaded a video of Reese having fun with that.

LAST day of school!


The last day of school before winter break is always fun.  Reese had a Polar Express pajama party, what better way to watch the Polar Express than in class with all your friends + you get to wear pajamas to school.  And of course there was hot chocolate and treats.  Noelle's class decorated sugar cookies and since Carson tagged along with me to these events, his sister was kind enough to let him share her desk and decorate his own cookies.  30+ kids combined with sugar cookies, hot chocolate with LOTS of whipped cream = good times!  Everyone from parents to teachers to students was in an extra jovial mood of course!!  Christmas Vacation is HERE!!!

Carson's Christmas Program

video
We were rather far in the back, so it's grainy, but here is Carson, putting an ornament on the Christmas tree on stage.  He was not overly thrilled to be on stage and was quite relieved when the whole production was over.  He also sang "Oh Christmas Tree" and a song about hearing the Angel Voices Sing.

Meet Bella

No, we did not get another Shar Pei, Bella is my parents' new puppy.  She arrived last night and we were all so excited to meet her.  She is very feisty and spirited, Gizmo and Luna were not quite sure what to make of her, she kind of reminds me of Scrappy Doo, going up against the big dogs. 







Gingerbread House Day 2

We put the roof on + more decorations!

Gingerbread House day 1



Reese's class is taking two days to build and decorate home made Gingerbread houses.  He is doing such a good job!  We are going to let them dry overnight, then put on the roof and more decorations tomorrow.
