Sick, sick, sick

I took the kids to the doctor on Saturday to make sure that they didn't have an ear infection before we fly out on Monday. The doctor said that Costas has a double ear infection and they both have pneumonia. Pneumonia?!?! I didn't see that one coming. It is relatively mild so they are both on antibiotics and we have been cleared to travel. Should be a fun trip.

Ready to open presents!

Santa brought Actaeos a sports climber so he can have some fun at home.

Costas opened all of the presents. Actaeos wasn't interested.

Costas is now ready for a 16" bike. It was raining on Christmas day so he had to wait to ride it.

Costas loved his new digital camera. He is always borrowing mine so now he has his own. The present that he plays with the most is the Moon Sand.

Actaeos isn't thrilled with Cookie Monster.

Hanging out in the sports climber.

Santa didn't bring Actaeos any candy, but he sure would like some.

Go Tell It On The Mountain

Our church Christmas pageant. Once again, my kid is the goofy one.

This year, Costas really believes in Santa. We saw Santa at church and I'm pretty sure that Costas thought he was the real deal. Someone else took the picture and I'm disappointed in how it turned out, since Costas' eyes weren't open all the way. Actaeos was ready for a nap and not happy to be sitting with some strange guy.

Chrismas Cookies

We made 3 kinds of Christmas cookies this year: sugar cookies, Russian tea cakes, and Peanut Butter Cup cookies. Costas is a great baker and does all of the measuring and mixing with just a little help. We gave cookies to neighbors, the mail carrier, and the fire station. The fire station gave us a tour of the fire engine as a thank you as well as some hats for the kids.

Christmas Songs

Here's a song from the Christmas program that they do at school. Costas is always extra goofy when he knows there is an audience.

Christmas Fun

We volunteer every year to ring the bell for the Salvation Army.

Making our gingerbread house is another annual tradition.

Costa was anxiously awaiting a float at the electric parade.

Baby Walking

I was finally able to get a good clip of Actaeos walking.

Back to School

I learned on Friday that I was accepted to graduate school. Yippee!
