Miss Briella -- in her tap class
Emily's first jazz class

Typical evening in our home.
Lighting of the candles -- a group effort!

Emily is now 14, which means Grandpa is 65! Wow, Grandpa! (In case you don't know, Grandpa got the best birthday gift ever when he turned 51 --- his first grandbaby!) Since we spread Emily's celebration out over several days, tonight was just the cake part. And, I had to scurry to get it frosted so that we could get to town for Bible study & babysitting. Craziness. I'm glad today was a SNOW DAY!

Grandma INSISTED I take photo of Emily in her new warm-up suit for dance! Looks awesome! Thank you, Grandma! I guess I forgot to take her photo in her new outfit from the other Grandma --- I will! It is so flattering :)

Beans & BaconIn his attempt at keeping the usual tradition of hauling the kids to the tree, Dan pulls the kids successfully... until Marci & Emily joined the load!

Here's the choice scotch pine! More photos of it all decorated in our living room ... coming soon!
