Tired of Christmas?

Not me, I'm still trying to do some blog catch up.

 "Sorry, Mom." Sadie said,
after eating her ENTIRE chocolate advent calendar very early in December.

This fall Sadie took her 1st Ballet Class.
She performed to the song 'Oh Christmas Tree' with her class on a real stage
in front of a large audience in December.
She loved every minute of it.
She wasn't scared, and wanted to get right back on stage after it was over.

For Christmas we went to Oregon to be at my parents home.
It was a nice way to spend the holidays. We made some fun memories!
Thanks Mom & Dad for hosting all of us.

They arranged for the grandkids to go on a train ride on the Polar Express.
They all loved it!
 Brandon loved it too.
(He's the one in the pink - older sister hand-me-downs.)
Of course he loved it, his b-day is on Christmas Eve.
He was born for this kind of Christmas FUN!

(The dud part of the trip, just looking at some lights outside.)

 Tate in his reindeer hat, and talking to Santa

On the train ride Santa came through and talked with each child.
That was fun when Santa came in our train car, and you could feel the excitement in the air.

 Why do boys do things like this?

My mom's beautiful Christmas tree

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care.
