Grandparents are awesome!

We were so lucky to get to spend time with both sets of grandparents this Christmas.  Grandma and Grandpa stayed with Uncle Trevor for most of December, so we got to see them a few times.  Mimi and Poppy drove down from PA and stayed with all their kids for a few days.  We loved seeing them!

December was warm.

We had several days this December in which shorts were proper attire.  It was in the 70's a lot, so we took advantage of that and had fun outside.  We also had a ton of rain.  In the last two pictures of the girls playing in the rain, that is on Christmas Eve Day!

Lera lost her first tooth!

Lera is ready to go, with her crimped hair and leotard on! :)

All smiles with the floss tied to her tooth.

Uh-oh.  The first pull was unsuccessful, so we had to try again.

The second attempt worked!  It's out!

She had quite a hard time, so Chess is giving her some love.

She loves her tooth fairy pillow!

The tooth fairy came and left a dollar!  Yeah!

My parents drove down from Pennsylvania and we had a little party with them.  
The kids love to decorate cookies!
