...May your days be Merry and Bright...

I love this time of year to celebrate with family and friends. Here are a few of the activities that have kept us busy the last few weeks.

Zoo Lights

Pete's work Party (He REALLY did not want to take a picture so this was the face I got from him)

2nd Annual Sub-4-Santa/Ugly Sweater/White Elephant Christmas Party

Making a gingerbread house

Welcoming home my little sis from Jerusalem

Dinner at La Caille to celebrate Christmas and all of our birthdays

I hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas Holiday!

Lucky Boy

Pete was just offered an internship with the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland for the summer.

He has some exciting summer plans

Think I will definitely have to visit:)

Ryan’s current obsession: “heya caca” a.k.a. helicopters
Phrase I hear multiple times a day: “I wanna see heya caca” (Meaning, mom please drive by the hospital so that I can see the life flight helicopter.)
Ryan’s favorite Youtube video: a 4-minute segment of a helicopter doing backflips-once he watched it over and over for two hours or so the babysitter told us-luckily we were gone when it happened.

I get to drive by the hospital multiple times a week just to look at the helicopter. The one time Ryan actually saw it flying he hyperventilated he was so excited and then couldn’t stop talking about it-lucky for me it is making his Christmas shopping very easy. I just hope he doesn’t have a new obsession by then since they seem to change rather quickly:)
