Merry Christmas from Big & Little

My mom hears from some of her friends and relatives that we're a big hit here on the blog - in fact, some people aren't as interested in her recipes as they are in pictures of us.  So, we wanted to say thanks for reading her blog (even when it's not about us) and Merry Christmas.  

Here are some of the Christmas activities we've enjoyed this year:
My Preschool Christmas program - I'm 4th from the left and for the moment, not touching the angel in front of me.

Taking our mom to the Christmas Parade at Disneyland where I took about 70 pictures on mom's phone.  Mostly of the backs of elves and reindeer.   We also took her to the Monrovia Christmas parade.

Doing crafts with cinnamon dough
Learning that the rolling pin is not easy and not your friend
Baking cookies and learning that the stand mixer shouldn't be turned to high when you add the flour
Trying to read recipes 
Enjoying some sunny weather on our annual family trek to the desert in December
Feeding the giraffes at the Living Desert 
Snuggling with dad on the couch listening to Christmas Carols and watching the fire
Picking out our tree

Decorating it
Ta-dah!  Notice the bottom row of ornaments placed so carefully by my little sister 
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


  1. Looks like fun! Merry Christmas!

  2. What a fun season your Mommy and Daddy make for you! You are such lucky little girls! Thank you for inviting me to your programs! I LOVED seeing you both as angels last night! And your school program was so very special! Can't wait to open gifts with you both tomorrow! Love you lots!

  3. All the photos are wonderful, but #6 is my favorite. It's a total big and little sister moment.

  4. How fun to see all this pictures! Hope everyone had a happy Christmas and that no one made the naughty list.
