Take Five

No babies were squished while taking this picture.

Miss Grace

This is Grace in her classroom at school. As you can see she is standing in front of her classroom Christmas wish list, where she has asked for a pony. Do you think Santa will deliver?

Miss Belle

Here is Annabelle before her Christmas program and party at school. The program was pretty funny, although there wasn't much singing going on. Most children were either crying, waving to their parents, or picking their nose. Or instead of singing they were yelling. Annabelle spent much of her time doing two of these things, but I won't tell you which two.

Christmas Party

Here are the kids at Eric's squadron Christmas party. Clearly Michael is not at all impressed with Santa Claus. Everyone had a wonderful time and I learned a new way to keep the kids entertained for hours: tape a huge sheet of bubble wrap to the floor. Who needs presents when you have bubble wrap?

Spelling with Annabelle

Me: Annabelle, how do you spell dog?
Bellie: P-L-G
Me: And how do you spell cat?
Bellie: K-R-G
Me: Bellie, how do you spell princess?
Bellie: G-R-A-C-E

Take Four

As you can see, the kids wouldn't fake enthusiasm for me this time. The new Christmas jammies didn't even get them in the mood. Grace was upset Papa didn't have his own jammies, Michael threw up all over about 5 seconds after this shot was taken (so I guess that explains why he wasn't his usual jolly self), and I am not sure about Bellie, but it might have something to do with the fact that she woke up with the flu less than 24 hours after we took these pictures. Anyways, at the rate we are going we might end up with a Valentine's Day picture.
