Decorating for Christmas

This year, we decided to decorate for Christmas on what would have been my mom's 70th birthday, December 13th. Considering her love for Christmas and for decorating, I think it was a fitting remembrance. Kate and I also made a Grammy-inspired meal of Chicken Florentine, rice, broccoli--and of course, Christmas cookies.

Here's what Izzy and Truman did while taking a break from decorating:


Well, it's been a hundred years. All I can say's been an eventful 6 months. I changed jobs (making a tour of the government contractors that start with U, I'm now at USIS instead of Unisys), Carroll took a new job and then laid himself off and then went to Copenhagen for the climate talks as a consultant. Truman started preschool, Izzy is in Pre-K (and LOVING it), Kate continues to excel at Washington Latin (great at writing, Latin, drama, science, math...crazy!).

Anyway, as you may have heard, we had a bit of snow this past weekend. The kids loved it. Here are a few pictures so you can see for yourselves.
