|Daphne's friend who came for dinner and cake on her Christmas Birthday.|
|Daphne opened a big box of fabric from my Mom. She thinks they are blankets for her babies. Rebecca's been designing dresses with the fabric, and Quinn chose this stylish pink fabric for his kingly robe.|
|Getting ready to build a "boogie buddy." It definitely boogied.|

We tried to downsize the Christmas craziness this year, and we think we may have gotten it just right. We were able to open all of our gifts before church at 8 am and get to church on time. I remember fondly that we were able to open all of our gifts 3 years ago before Daphne's Christmas morning arrival, as well.

This Christmas I was spoiled rotten. The kids carefully watched as I tore open a Cuisinart food processor and cookbook from them. Quinn was so excited about the cookbook that he told me about it the minute they got home from shopping. And then he asked to see all of my cookbooks. He picked out about 5 treats
he wanted to make for Santa and recommended some dinner choices, as well. Finally, I have a child willing to help me plan the dinner menu!
