Catching up--A visual narrative of December

So, it's been a while. December is a blur of dissertating, trying to meet my Dec 15th deadline, while sick, while trying to enjoy the Christmas goings-on. This visual narrative, like most, shows the good parts of all of that. Hopefully, we can all forget the bad parts :)









Here's a summary of the pics: we decorated the tree, wrote letters to Santa, went on the Polar Express, mailed the letters to Santa, made a gingerbread house, wrapped presents, made sugar cookies for Mister's school performance and cookie swap, went to the performance, went to Zoolights and got cool and expensive "light sabers" (yes, what were we thinking), enacted the Nativity on Christmas Eve, had a great Christmas morning, Mister got pulled on a tub behind the snowmobile by Mom while Dad took Sweetie out, J took a turn on the tube, Grandpa manned the snowmobile and carted loads of sledder cousins to the top of the hill, we met other cousins at the temple to see the lights, Mister and Sweetie built a snowman/snowwoman (the gender was hotly debated) and did snow angels with Grandma. Hooray! What a December!

WOW! I can't believe you squeezed in all that fun with being sick and working to meet your deadline! How was the Polar Express? I think we're going to do that next year.
