"Hello, Kellie? Can we all come over? For a sleepover? ASAP? Oh, can you pick up some pizza while you are at it?" They came through, as they always do, for a New Year's Eve to remember. Once again, our friends and our church family saved the day. We love them so.
Back to the topic at hand...a week later it was time for the six of us to celebrate the last day of Christmas. Of course, it was a Saturday, so the kids insisted on starting with some early morning TV time. Then it was on to our new fave breakfast--coconut french toast bake! We exchanged gifts between us and the girls' school Christmas shop purchases were all winners. It was really a sweet time. The fact that the COIT Cleaners were cleaning our air ducts at the time just added to the magic.

Christmas vacation also calls for making the most out of winter. This year we introduced the girls to downhill tubing (a winner!), continued the tradition of ice-skating, and tasted Mali's first batch of cake pops. Lots of sweet memories! Don't worry, there was still plenty of time to get dolled up and also catch up on the chill-axing.
|We couldn't believe how quickly Mali took to tubing--she was old enough and capable enough to go by herself. Which she did!|
And the celebrations would continue...
