Christmas highlights, part I

Now that Christmas is over, I actually have time to post about it...

There must be an unspoken rule, teenagers shouldn't smile much for pictures. They really do have nice smiles, great boys, but maybe S & S should give them some tips :)

We're on our way to dad's work Christmas Party. They had a lunch catered for the families right there on the showroom floor. It was tasty, especially since I didn't have to cook, and nice to see dad's new work and meet his co-workers. The kids had fun checking out the nicest Nissan's and sitting in the 350Z. The girls were thrilled when the lot tech gave them a huge balloon in their favorite color- red. We miss friends & familiar faces from Paul's old work, but it was good meeting new ones at his new company.

A favorite part of Christmas for us is decorating Gingerbread Houses! We had a boy's house & a girl's house this year, since the girls wanted to go all out using a lot of icing, and, of course, making it very fancy! The boys made a great plan and ended up with an exquisite house, too neat to eat!

Aren't they beautiful? Boys on left, Girls on right

Hoping everyone had a Merry Christmas!

My teenaged son won't smile for the camera either. If you find anything that works, let me know!
