Misc. Christmas

I thought I posted this a few days ago.  Anyway, here are a few other Christmas related things.

 The week before Christmas, we went to Winter Wonderlights.  The highlight was probably that they had The Grinch Who Stole Christmas playing inside - it was the girls first movie theater experience.


 
 Andrew's dad came up with this funny game involving double sided tape 
and throwing cotton balls.  Most of the kids were frightened to see 
their dads looking like this!  

 Malia made a playdough snowman (with a googly-eye mouth)

 We had a great Christmas morning.  I took very few pictures.  
Guess I was just enjoying the time.

This picture just makes me laugh.  Davey and Graham were all about each others presents.  I love that those two are so close in age.

Christmas Eve

 Cousin love.
 Davey is saying "Where is my baby?" in this picture.
She was jealous Malia was holding Tess!
So we put Tess in the middle and she "loved" on her.

Let It Snow

A few days before Christmas, we got about a foot of snow. 
The girls really enjoyed exploring (and eating) it.

 
 
 
The girls got to go sledding also.  With Daddy.  And with Emmie and Pops.

Merry Christmas!

"I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; 
he is Christ the Lord."  Luke 2:10-11

Merry Christmas! 
Andrew, Chrissy, Malia and Davey

Christmas Baking

The past three days have included a lot of baking at our house.

:: Double batch of Chocolate Nutella Cookies
:: Two loaves of Pepperoni Bread
:: Double batch of Decorator Cookies
::  4 loaves Flax Bread
:: 2 loaves Zucchini Bread (of whose bottoms stuck to the bottom of the pan again)
:: One batch of Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Cookies

 
 Both girls helped put pepperoni on the bread.  It was kind of a one-for-one system for awhile - one for the bread, one for my mouth.

 
 Both girls decorated (and ate) cookies.

 Davey actually just decorated one, ate it and was done, but Malia did this whole plate.

Bread, bread, bread.  Some for now. Some for later.

And here is a picture of our Christmas tree (I told my grandma I would post a picture).  It actually looks more full in the picture than it is.

4 Year Pictures, Part 2

I thought it would be fun to shoot the girls with lollipops.  
And so we did.  
Warning there are a lot of pictures.

4 Year Pictures, Part 1

And just when you think Malia's birthday posts are over...

I took some 4 year pictures over the weekend.

  

On our drive over, Andrew commented that it was his first time joining me on one of my shoots (usually he is at home with Davey but they joined us).  I am thankful he came because he gave Malia some great ideas for poses!

 This is her winking.

And here she is standing on one leg!
