Somehow, we missed a month. And I will endeavor to upload at least something from November at some point, but we find ourselves in 2017. (In fact, here’s what we’ll do. If you want to see pictures from Cuba or Harry Potter world, email me and I’ll send you links to slideshows we put together on Shutterfly for those! Now, we’re all caught up with the major stuff… and I’ll find a Thanksgiving picture to complete November!) January follows December, so it comes as no shock, but more of a surprise how quickly we are here…
So, here’s our quick holiday update!
This is the kids all dressed up for the Nutcracker.
Here’s my matching boys, and then below my beauty girl who adores her daddy.
Then a few quick takes from Hanukkah.
Candle lighting, and gift opening on the first night.
Then with it being Christmas, a trip to Palm Springs and New Years, we kind of gave Hanukkah a bit of a short shrift this year. We tried to make up for that with a Hanukkah dinner party for New Year, which was a blast, but I neglected to take pictures.
And here’s all our Christmas highlights in one slideshow: from cookie baking for the annual party to writing notes to Santa, trips to decor in Beverly Hills, new Christmas Eve jammies, stocking opening, Chocolate bun breakfasts, and gifts, gift, gifts!
Then, as I said, we jetted off to Palm Springs between Christmas and New Years. The only time I even took out my phone (so, camera) was on our hike on the Indian trails.
It was pretty spectacular, with gorgeous hiking weather.
And because of the recent rains, the waterfall was gushing!
And finally, I’m going to end here: with the kids happy and teasing. It seems like an auspicious start to 2017.
WAIT! Here’s Thanksgiving:
And now we’ll just consider ourselves caught up. Though I don’t believe in New Year’s Resolutions, I will try to be better about updating this year…
