More Christmas

 Yule log ice cream cakes for dessert.  One is  chocolate/peppermint and the other is chocolate/chocolate. I love this picture!  Linlee received an ant farm from Mémé.  Here is the gang (including my brother) watching the ants explore their new home.  The table is a mess of Christmas presents and you can see Grandma Young in the background …

Christmas 2014

 I took this picture Christmas Eve.  Seemed kind of magical.  Christmas morning.  The girls made out like bandits.  I originally planned for them each to receive four gifts under the tree and stocking stuffers.  Somehow they ended up with quite a bit more than that.  Santa is a huge softy.  Here are just a few …

Preschool Holiday Concert

Wednesday night (before Holly got sick), Holly’s preschool entertained us with a holiday concert.  It was cute, but it’s eight minutes long, so I only expect the grandparents to hang in there for the entire video.  I think one of my favorite parts is when the kids are supposed to cup their mouths to shout “ho ho …

Sick again. :(

Holly made this cozy spot for herself in front of the fire.  She woke up with a barky cough and a mild fever.  I could just cry.  In October she brought home the Cough From Hell which took us all down.  It lasts forever and turns into something really nasty.  Poor Linlee hasn’t recovered from …

Santa at Warm Beach!

Last night we visited Warm Beach Camp (brrrr!) which puts on a spectacular festival of lights and holiday magic.  We arrived when they opened at 5:00 PM and went straight to see Santa before the lines got disastrously long.  We lucked out with only a couple of children in front of us.  Holly asked Santa for My Little …

Holiday dinner at the Davises!

 We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon with friends yesterday.  Anne’s house was decorated so pretty.  The adults got to sit down and enjoy grown-up talk while the little girls decorated cookies, ran around outside and played in Rachel’s room.  This is one of our favorite December traditions. Awe!  Decorating cookies.  (Linlee decorated one and then ran off …

Oh Christmas Tree (before and after)

 I love our mish-mash of colored lights and eclectic ornaments.  It’s very us.  Now I just need to start wrapping presents and placing them under the tree.

Ice Skating Recital (video!)

The girls participated in a holiday ice skating recital yesterday.  They were too cute for words!  I was a wreck.  We’d never done this before and it was a bit complicated, but we managed.  I was nervous for my babies, but thankfully they have two awesome coaches who went out on the ice with them …

Christmas Tree Farm

 Time to find the 2014 Young family tree!  We lucked out and the rain took a break during this adventure.  We usually find a tree we like within five to ten minutes.  This year we probably trudged around the tree farm for a good twenty minutes or more before we found one that suited us. …
