Christmas 2010

We had a crowd over this Christmas. All of the kids have moved away and it is difficult to get them together from scattered locations, but fortunately our daughter from Portland (1800km) came down with the family as well as our youngest son from San Francisco (1000km). They all drove over through California during those big rainstorms but left here in sunshine.

E came down along with mom and dad. On Christmas Eve she left milk and cookies for Santa and wrote him a welcome note.

It looks like the cookies worked, as there were a lot more presents under the tree the next morning.

Mom made E a new tutu.

She also received lots of toys and things she liked. She danced with a new wand.

And played with some new dolls and doll chairs that Granddad made

She really seemed to like some hats that she got

And she performed a nice dance number several times

All in all, it was a pleasant holiday week.

I LOVE those red and white stripey tights on E! My kids had similar ones... shows refined taste, I think. :)

I love that last outfit! How adorable. She has grown so much. Isn't it time for a baby brother or sister for her??? Happy New Year Joe! I don't get out in the blog world much but wanted to come see how things are going in the big V!
