First Day of Winter


We took a picture of our shadows at high noon on the very first day of winter. Look how long they are! We'll repeat this picture on June 21st at noon to see how short our shadows are. 

(I was kneeling. Nathan is not that tall compared to me! Not yet, anyway!!)

Shooting Rockets at Reindeer

Yesterday was a nice day so I got the kids outside to play. They played with the stomp rocket. A few times, they hit the reindeer next door. Luckily, foam rockets don't hurt anything.

Elizabeth's School Play


Elizabeth's preschool did a Christmas play called "Twas the Night Before Christmas." Two classes joined together to make it great! 

She was a bit nervous. She got to be a sugar plum fairy!


The sugar plum fairies lining up way across from us. Elizabeth will be easy to pick out in the pictures because she's the one in red (that isn't Santa). 


The mice waiting in front of the tree. 


The snowflakes getting ready!


On stage were the parents and their children at home. 


The sugar plum fairies sang a song and danced across. 


They were spinning in circles. 


Santa and his reindeer showed up! I guess I didn't get a good picture of the reindeer. 


After the play, the two classes sang Christmas songs for us! Elizabeth saw I had the camera out. 



Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn't know?



All 40 kids!

I got him some new cute doggie pajamas. He just loves them!
