This is in front of the tree that we've named "The Tree of One Million Lights." It seems to pulse with the lights on each branch.
This girl throwing a snowball at a boy is part of a larger display with gondola and people skiing on the roof...but Lukas' favorite part is the snowball throwing.
Another family has a zillion lights on their home, AND opens up the curtains to show off their Christmas room inside.
Natalie and I are trying to see everything on the lawn at that same home.
And then there are Christmas cookies. I thought I was particularly brave to attempt this with four children at the same time (I usually try to do this kind of thing with one or two children at a time...I know my limits). I am happy to say we are all still alive, and actually had a fun time. Dominik went for his cookie as soon as it was iced. Natalie tried to lick the icing off the cookie.
Konrad and Lukas had a little more interest in the cookie decorating...they each decorated 4 or 5, before leaving the rest to me to finish.
A good morning's results!
I have special holiday postings planned for the next two days...depending on the cooperation of the other Happy Ones...so stay tuned!
