For some reason we didn’t get too many pictures of the (5!) Christmas celebrations this year.  At least it doesn’t feel to me like we got too many but the basis for comparison is the 3,000 we took last year so my viewpoint is probably a bit skewed.  Anyway, here’s what we got.

Paige isn’t quite awake yet (and wonders why Daddy refuses to share his magic morning elixir with her…):

“Mama!  Santa ate the cookies and drank the milk!”

What on earth possessed Santa to bring Paige a microphone?

She was thrilled:

Microphone?  Recorder?  So much noise to make, so little time!

(It’s easier for her to play when I make this face.)
