December in review

Although December was EXTREMELY busy, we only have a part of it on camera ;)

Dad was getting ready for a job interview and each of us took a turn to help!

Pretty chilly out there!

The Winter Rose dress rehearsal 

We had a birthday party for Lydia at Grandma and Grandpa B's house



These notes are really neat - they have Lydia's name on them!

We had the opportunity to go to a friend's house 
and help him set up a Christmas tree!

This tree was all taken apart and twisted like crazy! 

Before...
 


Almost :D

All of us with Mr. Mike!
