December so far

I can't believe how much has already happened in December. ;)  It's been a strange month - warm weather, no snow, and a lot of rain.  We've been making the best of it!

It was dark by the time we made it out the door for our afternoon walk - so we went looking for Christmas lights instead.

Escape to the Montshire on another miserable afternoon.

Nightly walk in the rain.

The girls took a few swim lessons.

A great night at Celebrate the Season in Hanover!

Getting our Christmas Tree on a 60 degree day!  (This is helpful, right daddy?)


Clara's Dream with Aunt Rebeckah while Daddy stays home with the little boys.

Making Granny Ware's kissy cookies

meandering walk home from school on yet another grey day.  baby ready for his nap.

Emily likes to sneak her cat ears & tail to school.  Adara likes to do "homework" with Emily.  And Alden's playing peekaboo with the baby in the reflection.  These are sweet days.

Alden loves the guitar.  Adara likes to clean with me, and was thrilled to be allowed to vacuum the car by herself.  I think we could work with this...

The little two and I met my dad at Killington (on yet another oppressively dreary day) to shop for a ski coat and had french fries and hot cocoa for lunch.  Everybody wins. :)

Emily's reading is really starting to take off.  Alden loves to wriggled into the pantry and announce "hiding!"

I love these people!
