Mischa's Recital

Mischa had her 2nd winter recital today. She did a duet with her piano teacher on Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and did Nuttin' for Christmas. She did really well.

Caleb's First Concert

Caleb started playing clarinet this year. He's really enjoying it. The 4th and 5th graders had their winter concert at the beginning of December. 4th grade did really well doing songs using only 3 or 4 notes, and the 5th grade band was very good. It's amazing what a year can do!

Visiting the North Pole

We go to Santa's North Georgia Embassy before Christmas every year (this is our 3rd year). He and Mrs. Claus go all out in decorating their yard and house. My favourite room is their bedroom. All of the decorations there are nativities. They have a huge yard size nativity in the corner.
Caleb asked for an I-Coaster roller coaster set (and I guess the I-pod to go with it).Mischa wants silly putty.
Joshua is fixated on a wireless Wii nunchuck.Liesie was too shy again to sit on his lap. But she wasn't shy enough to accept a candy cane from him. She wants a Barbie.
After we saw Santa, I put her down to give my arm a rest. She started to throw a fit and we told her it wasn't a good idea to be bad this close to Santa (we had received a call from him the night before for setting off his naughty radar). Joshua chimed in "Yeah, you'll receive a lump of coffee!"

Not Quite As Creative As Kris

My sister-in-law, Kristine, is the card master. I'm not that great at paper layering- I have no sense of colour combinations- so I stick with the simpler stuff. But, Joshua's teacher still loved the card.
