Here are some pictures of our wicked awesome ginger bread house. :) I found this plastic kit at a christmas show... works great. You just cover the whole thing in icing and add your decorations to it. Ours is really only done on one side though because we let kale do it and he made a MESS out of the icing and everything else. Its nice though; just snaps together thenthrow it in the dishwasher for next year!

And here are a few pix of the little rascals in their Christmas PJ's - kale LOVES to wear his santa hat. In fact he wore it the whole day at school the other day and evidently didn't take it off at all. Funny little guy...

A busy week celebrating

Thrusday Night was Aeneas's Christmas program with all his friends with school. He was tired from a busy week and yawned through the whole thing but managed to sing at least part of the songs. He was so proud to have been on stage. It's tough living in the shadow of an older brother who gets to do everything first.

The following day he got to stay through lunch for a pizza party!

 Getting goodies afterward! Yum.

Friday, Patrick had a pajama breakfast party in his class. They ate, made a craft which I never saw because he ate it before I got there to pick him up, and the watched the Polar Express. After school, we had his last dance class and they all got to show us what they have been working on for the past semester. Who would have thought that kids these days would still be dancing to Michael Jackson's "Thriller!"

And on our first day officially off, we decorated some gingerbread houses. OK, so Patrick and I decorated and Aeneas just ate all the toppings. We went shopping for Daddy. Apparently he didn't have enough presents under the tree and so the boys felt sorry for him. So they dug out their spending money and we went shopping. They knew exactly what they wanted to get him so we were in and out and back home in no time. We met Kip down at the river trail and took a stroll and played some games before watching the original Chipmunks! A fun day of recreation!

Now if Daddy can get that grading done so we can shred some pow bra!
