Catching Up and Getting Ready for 2011

Ready or not here it comes, 2011 that is!  Wow, time seems to fly by faster and faster as I age. 

We had a superb time celebrating Jesus's birthday.  One of our family traditions has been to make Jesus a birthday cake.

 Jesus's 2010 Birthday Cake

Another fun Christmas tradition has been to fill up "real" socks instead of stockings, real socks being defined as a pair that has actually been worn by you sometime during the year.

 And the after.  A and B ended up loving the pink and blue hair (I found it at the dollar store :)

David and I had a lot of fun preparing and setting up Christmas Eve.  My husband has a gift for presentation, which is nice b/c I don't think I have that gift.  We decided to tag the kids presents with balloons this year and that was pretty fun.  David has memories of his parents doing this one year and we thought our kiddos would love it too.  We also had a cool train set up around the tree that was pretty fun!

 C got a bike for Christmas - yeah!  Along with a helmet and the monkey boots that you see in this picture.  I love his side smile!

The girls have been busy today making New Year's Eve cupcakes.  Here they are baking in their new aprons and accessories (thanks Sharon!).

Apron girls!

Little of this, little of that...

Happy 2011 Everyone!
