"Take a pichur of me, Mommy!  Peek a boo!"

I found this picture on my iPhone.  I think Ellie took it and posed him; he's holding a photo from our wedding :)

The Happy Birthday Girl!  
I shared about her fun party here.

"I stomp on the alligator!"

The brothers have been playing hunting all week in the backyard!

Love me a baby fresh out of the bath!



{funny}
He fell asleep on the way home from the ballet studio.  I took him out of his carseat and set him on his feet while I turned around to do something.  He lie/lay/laid (Auntie Leila, if you're reading this, I need a lesson) down in the grass and went back to sleep!

I don't think Santa realized that the bath fizzy bubble things were going to turn the water blue and pink!

"I make a monster!  Roar!  It's not going to eat you!"

{real}
I took the girls and their friend to a Boar's Head and Yule Log Festival at a local Christian church last weekend.  It was a beautiful Christmas pageant with over 180 costumed roles of adults and children.  There was beautiful music (Latin, Marian, etc), handbells, harpist, and trumpeters.  It's apparently a festival that has been celebrated for over 600 years.  So cool!  At the end, that big tabernacle thing in the middle was opened and there was the Holy Family with a real newborn baby.  I hope to make this a Christmas tradition!  This year it fell on the Eve of the Epiphany, which was a beautiful way to continue to celebrate the Christmas Season.
 
I hope you've all had some pretty, happy, funny, and real moments this week!
