One of the many things I love about my job is that I still get a Christmas break along with the students. I had a wonderful holiday and had many wonderful dinners with friends and time with family. I did not however, remember to bring my camera with me on most days. So here's a tiny bit of my Christmas break - beginning with my two favorite holiday ornaments.

On Christmas eve, my family traditonally attends my parent's church to attend their candlelight service.

And what's cuter than seeing a one and a half year old in pink pants learning to ice skate...or really just being held over the ice by her dad. It was great going out to the skating rink and watching the kids learn to skate!

It was a lovely break. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

I love your Eiffel Tower ornament. Dave and I have filled our tree with ornaments of our travels.

Hard to beat cute!

I also love the ornaments. There's that nostalgic warmth and coziness about them. Elena with those skates on just killed me.

Julia - I love your entire tree!!

Sally and Aili - Elena was just hilarious watching her feet dangle on the ice!!

Oh man, I hate ice skating--I only tried it once, mind you, but it was almost as bad as it wasn't.

AILI said...

I agree Shay, skiing it just about the most hazardous
activity around! I wouldn't mind trying snow shoeing or whatever you call it when your just walking on the flat snow. Now, that's a sport!

Happy New Year! I'm a bit late for Christmas, but glad to hear you had a nice break.

Love the Eiffel Tower :-)
