Long ago day!

Getting the kindergartners together for a picture is almost as hard as getting a family picture!

Th Polar Express 2013

This year we were joined by the Giacobazzis!! We all had an awesome train ride to the north pole taking in hot chocolate, cookies, carols, story telling, and adorable children in awe!

(((btw, how neat is this automatic Picasa feature!!!)))

Responsibility award!

Sweet little jack got an award for being responsible the first month of school! He is super responsible - he does his jobs and politely helps his classmates stay on task. He's even been known to help his teacher, Mrs. Raina, remember things ;).


Elfie belfie is baaaaaaack!

3rd year visiting the green family! He always arrives the night we get our tree - must symbolize the official start of the season 'round here - and travels back with Santa on Christmas eve. Elfie is a sweet elf. He listens to the kiddos share about their day, keeps a watchful eye on behavior, and never creates mischief. He returns to the north pole each night to report on the day and to check in on his friends prepping for Christmas. Each morning he lands in a different spot in the house. The kids are so excited every morning to find him! He really adds to the fun of the season :)

Excitement on the morn of his return:



Camping in the cold!

You know that saying about summer in San Francisco?!? Yep, it's true. And we camped in that cold! Brrrrrrr.
{all in all, it wasn't too bad but we did spend more time than usual in our trailer!}

getting a family picture is a joke.

thank goodness for picasa's motion files - otherwise, you'd miss this amazingness.
{try watching one individual throughout - it's pretty funny}
{disregard my poodle hair and short dress}

maddy likes to decorate too!

she decorated this little tree all by herself!  and with such determination :)
