What We Did This Month - A Story In Fuzzy Pictures

Winter Blast 2005 arrived in the Puget Sound. Panic spread far and wide. Generators were tested, food and water horded, emergency blankets purchased.

Then it melted the next day and we went back to work.

Our Winter Blast 2005 Snow Fort. It kind of fell over right after this picture.

Christmas Eve came and blue mush was stirred. Did you know that if you are lacking in the "mush" part of the recipe, you can use rice? Reindeer love rice. Didn't you know that?

Sophie stirs the blue rice for the reindeer.

One must also make your children pose with blue mush. This is essential to having a good holiday. If you don't do this, everything will really suck.

Oooo....look at the pretty tree/stockings/presents! Also note the girls new PJ's.

It is also a great tradition to pose your children sitting on the largest present possible. It is more stable, thereby making it the safest picture. Plus, the hugeness of the present makes you look like a fantastic parent.

The socks, slippers and dresses were also Christmas gifts. I had nothing to do with Sophie's pony tails. Nothing.

The girls open the huge gift. I love this picture most of all because it really wraps up the chaos and excitement of the moment. I did that on purpose. It has nothing to do with the fact that my post-having-my-good-camera-stolen-by-the-evil-busboy digital camera really is just terrible at taking pictures. Any and all pictures apparently.

The red blur on the left is Maya. The blue blur in the center (with the blurry stripey socks) is Sophie.

And your month?

I just have to ask tho, you "tipped out the blue goop" but where did you hide it? If I did something like that it would be SURE to be discovered!! heheh

Anyway, You look like you had loads of fun! Hooray!
