We celebrated the best Daddy-o EVER and invited our friends and their kids to celebrate his birthday, too.
We watched this group of first graders perform at the holiday musical on the last day of school.
We celebrated the performance and the kick off of winter break with Panda.
We did a whole lot of this...
And THEN we celebrated my niece Allison's graduation from college. We are so proud of her.
After months of prep, piano recital day appeared. I fully expected Ella to melt down at the last minute petrified to perform in front of a church full of people. She was first up in the program and she sailed it out of the ballpark. I was ridiculously happy for her.
We spent way too much time shoo-ing Thomas out of the Christmas tree this year. He's huge. He doesn't realize he's huge. It makes for delicate removal.
We enjoyed some very special quiet moments too...
