Christmas to New Year’s Day

Yes, I’m horribly behind.  Regardless, here are some pics of the doings in the vacation week between the holidays!

Anna helped me make pancakes with her new kitchen set.  She ate those little pancakes right out of her frying pan much better than she ever eats them when I give them to her, and these with no syrup or butter or anything!

Anna desperately wanted to decorate Christmas cookies, so Grandma made us a batch of sugar cookies.  She had to use Halloween cookie cutters, because apparently, I don’t have any Christmas ones.  In any case, the rest of the crew sat down to decorate the cookies, and the results were pretty appetizing!

The kids modeling a very cute little tutu and hat made for them by a friend of my mom’s back in Oklahoma:

This is how poor Grandpa looked nearing the end of his visit:

Presumably he had a headache.  Thankfully, we had some competent medical professionals on hand who could administer a band-aid with just the right pre-school character to make it all better!

    Thank goodness Will finally got to see CARS. I hope he’s still as big a fan as before. It doesn’t look like Grampa saw very much of the movie though – :snore: That’s how Uncle Tony watches movies too.

    Those cookies look delicious. Christmas needs more ghosts and jack-o-laterns anyway.

    In that 3rd picture of Anna washing dishes, she looks like she’s about 15 years old. Scary!! I’m glad we got to see the kids again this Christmas. They are growing up before our eyes!!
