1st Ski Day at Sundance

I can't explain how giddy we all were to finally be skiing!
What a cutie!

Performances worth watching!

Remember to 'pause' the Kids Music on the right side of the blog before listening to the videos below...
(above) "Zip A Dee Doo Dah" Dance
(below) Cambria's 1st debut on the piano!
She learned this song in a matter of minutes & has perfected it now; but this raw footage of her learning is great! This was the 2nd time we'd played this song together!
Colten playing "Go Tell It on the Mountain"
Remember the theme song from HAPPY DAYS?

Tis' the Season

It's Christmas Time! We went to a Christmas Tree farm this year and chopped down our Christmas Trees!
Colten took this shot of the moon the day we picked out our tree!
Yep! A true Griswald's tradition.. on top of the minivan!
All lit, decorated and oh so tall!
Santa, please come down our chimney!

We did it! We now have beautiful brown exterior doors. It took much sanding and smoothing, but they look amazing!
And yes - it is worth blogging about!

Our newest niece: Oaklee Reese Bell

While my mom visited, we were able to make this Blessing Dress for my niece, Oaklee Reese. It turned out so beautiful and I am very proud of this special dress! It was a lot of work, but well worth it!
Oaklee in the dress... so so pretty!
What an absolute doll..
