A Touch of Magic

Yesterday we got to visit the Magic House with the Blacks. It was so amazing, too much to see and do and I believe we were just in a small part of it. It was a lot of fun, unfortunately we couldn't stay long. I can't wait to return!

Something to simle about.

So I have a collage of random videos for your perusal, a few with Lizzy showing off her awesome dance moves (Napoleon eat your heart out!) and our choir Christmas song. Enjoy!

St. Charles.

There is the cutest little town near us called St. Charles. It was our first state capital and has a lot of history. Every Nov to the first of Jan. they have Christmas festivities down town. Yesterday we sampled a little of their bounty. There are actors representing various Christmas characters in many different cultures. They hand out their cards. We only got a few.
Lizzy met her first prince: The Nutcracker Prince. I think you'll agree the picture tells all. The USA Santa was quite entertaining. We has chestnuts roasted on an open fire, luckily we left Jack frost on the other side of the street, so our noses were spared. There were yuletide carols being sung by a choir ans we SHOULD have been dressed like Eskimos! We were freezing by the time we left. It was wonderful and I have to go back to see the lights and other shops sometime. Yea for Christmas!

Daniel's work had a Christmas party for the children of all the workers. Lizzy most enjoyed running around in circles and stealing the other children's toys. Santa came and gave each child a gift. It was interesting to meet Daniel's co-workers.

Now What?

School is over! Yay, we even had some sunshine so I put the sprinkler on and let the kids play. Little did I know how disastrous this would ...
