Tis The Season

As per usual, we've filled the season with fun and festive memories.  Although I haven't lugged out my "real" camera or taken as many photos as I normally do (I'll blame stress of the house stuff), we've enjoyed our balmy December with temps often in the 70s.

Grace is NOT a fan of Santa.  She met him downtown at Neimans and at first, she was slightly curious as her brother introduced her...
 "I CHANGE MY MIND!!!!!"
Whenever she saw Santa this month, she screamed bloody murder and ran the other way.  Scarred for life!

Playgroup Christmas friends.  We love this bunch so much!
Double trouble:
Palmer's first Christmas program:  The awards for "Parents of the Year" do not go to Rick and me for misunderstanding the full depth of the calendar event known as "Christmas Sing A Long" at Palmer's school.  

Apparently, that is a full-blown school program and when I saw all of the other dads in the audience and the fact that the show was in the sanctuary, I frantically emailed Rick.  Oops.  He was in the middle of a meeting.  We'll know better for child #2... Sorry, P.

However, I am proud to report that Palmer did NOT yell "hot dog," nor "alright, alright, alright" in-between songs.  Yes, this was a concern and something we had to discuss pre-show.  Lord, have mercy.

Rick and I get out from time to time...
 With or without Cher as a tagalong...
We love our annual gingerbread house-making fun.  This year's theme: Army Fort.
It was a delight to work on our castles with the Wonsmos family.  William and Palmer have been such buddies since they were infants and Grace and Lila are quickly keeping up with their older brothers.
I was the "Mystery Reader" at Palmer's school.  The class was given the following clues: "She's a mommy.  She has two kids.  Her favorite Starbucks order is a tall nonfat latte with whip.  She exercises before her kids wake up.  Her kids have curly hair."  Palmer was jumping out of his seat yelling to the class that it was HIS mommy.  So much fun!!
Christmas with the Jordan extended family.  Palmer and Elle could not adore each other more.  Except when they fight like siblings, which is only 40% of the time.
Palmer asked me if I liked his "new smile".  I told him I probably preferred the original version.  And Grace saw Santa and freaked out.
That's a wrap on December from Rudolph...
...and the rest of us.
