Christmas Eve Fun

Let's get dressed for the parties. Lia is not amused when I suggest the purple and black jingle bell wreath as the perfect finishing touch for her outfit.

Ant's big snowman made with snow harvested from the driveway!

Time to shovel once again!

The blizzard has arrived!

Luscious egg bread to warm us up!

Winter Day

Time to shovel! The kids manage to clear most of the driveway by rolling the snow up into huge balls!

Just one more ball, and we'll be done!

Oh, Christmas Tree!

Saturday Smiles!

JoAnn is all smiles as she dries the dishes....

Esme is not *quite* so happy about washing, but she's still smiling!

Lia joyfully helps with feeding the cat...

Da Momma is still smiling after a long busy day...

Ant... well... he was smiling underneath that comforter, despite his protestations...

And me... Still gleefully smiling! ^-^
