a few things christmas...


this is not any ordinary milk carton, this is what's left of maiko's gingerbread house he made at school (or i guess it was technically a gram cracker house)... they ate the entire thing except the milk carton base in about fifteen minutes.... so i didn't get a "real" picture of it... sigh... it was so cute! i'm glad the kids didn't have to eat stale crackers and frosting though...

when we went shopping for our christmas tree maiko found this little one "he loved so much" and carried it around while we were looking, with high hopes of taking it home... he forgot about it when the lady at the tree lot gave him a candy cane though...

my favorite picture from layla's christmas play :) they passed out like this on the way there! luckily we were pretty earily so me and matt just sat in the parking lot awhile enjoying the calm before the crazy storm....


eislee even got her own seat :)

it was such a cute play... the polar express.... the line-up of wagons is the train and there were elves and reindeer and santa of course... then they sang christmas songs for us including john lennon's happy xmas (war is over)... love it.... it's funny layla has been singing the christmas songs and knows them so well and all the little hand gestures that go with them.... we thought for sure that she would do such a good job... but once she was on stage she pretty much just sat there staring at the audience... it was pretty funny... we brought the video camera and everything and half the time you couldn't even see her because she was leaning behind her friend chloe, haha, go figure... i really enjoy listening to her singing those christmas songs, just this morning she was singing happy xmas....i can't tell you how nice it is to listen to her singing that song... thanks linda, thanks john :) merry christmas everybody!
