Christmas celebrations

Who says you have to celebrate only on the day itself?  The season is so fun when you spread the joy out all month long.
 We got a couple of good snow storms before Christmas and we were able to build a fort, have a good snowball fight (Caleb and Parent only participated) and we got some good sized icicles.
 Haley finally enjoys nursery (the last month of the year she got an awesome teacher and now loves it), better late than never.  She really enjoyed the present she got of bubbles.
 Yes, they do love each other every now and then.  This is Christmas Eve.
 We found a very cool house this year.  The decorations included a fire breathing sea monster, dinosaurs and a light up pig.  Oh, and they even had seals popping up out of the bush with a ball on the nose.  Not your typical santa and his reindeer here, people.
 Haley saw this snowman decoration and called it a robot.  So cute.  And of course Caleb needed a picture with it.
 Caleb always being inventive started sledding down this hill with no snow.  They had a pretty good time with it.
 Two of the loved Christmas presents this year.
This is a shot from Christmas Eve.  Caleb did a great job with Silent Night on the violin.  Seeing as how he only really practiced for 2 and a half days it was a pretty good job.  Peter also did great with his "Fiesta de la Posada (Party at the Inn)"song.  People were happy, for the most part.  They had fun with surprise presents, playing in the snow, time off from school and eating more sugar than real food for a good 3 days in a row.
