Just a few scenes from my week...a little of this and a little of that. We attended an afternoon performance of The Nutcracker at Dayton's Schuster Center. Grace has deemed this a must do tradition. She gets a new nutcracker for her collection each year as well. We were at my brother and sister in law's home last Sunday. Grace created her gingerbread house while there. The architect's tools of the trade... The finished project! My nephew, the Booman, playing Santa! Okay, so I taught Boo how do give "Nose Kisses" and he had to try it out on everyone! Oh the face he made while planting a "Nose Kiss" on all of us! Grandma found it quite amusing! Grace at Grandma's house, Christmas Eve. Dan showing Boo how to play with Grace's Nintendo DS. Now, what's up with the hat on Dan's head you ask? ARGH...the kid got his head shaved a bit TOO short and knew I hated it. Thus, the head gear. I realized that every picture I had of him also featured *The Hat* on Christmas night. Oh well...a hat is just a hat right? Showing Grace how to play.... Christmas morning...Santa brought the coveted American Girl Samantha doll. There was much rejoicing in the land. We visited with friends at our buddy *T*'s house. This is Grace with Daddy and our dear friend *J*. He and his wife *B* drove up from Tennessee to visit. The kid in the hat with the dog in the bandana. Grace with her beloved Henry. Just a few shots of a happy week. It was just the sort of Christmas we love best. Unhurried and quiet. Lots of good food, good movies, good friends, family, laughter and boisterous conversation. We are off to have lunch with the family...I hope your weekend is a sweet one. 2007 is rapidly coming to a close. I have so much for which to be grateful. I am, as always, so blessed to have each one of you in my life. Your friendships mean so much. Here's to a splendid 2008 for us all and a Blogging Babe Blowout Bonanza this year!
Love and hugs, Susie Q
