Holiday Performance

Liesl loves her preschool so much and she reeeeeally loves when they have performances.  Now this is not just kids shouting jingle bells.  Her teachers are amazing and they work on dances and songs and poems from about October on.  They did a great tap dance to up on the housetop.  I will try to get it on here.  Anyhow the performance was a success, only one little girl left the "stage" crying.  Then we had an amazing potluck with 25 crazy preschoolers running around like mad.  Nana and Papa came and Liesl was so glad -even though she was trying not to smile.

Liesl and I found this fabric and we decided she must have dress made from it. 
So last week I sewed up a storm and here it is, it fits!
 I was a little afraid we wouldn't get it over her head.


Hamming it up!

She is trying sooooo hard not to smile.

Here is the start of the tap dance, candy canes and all.

She was concentrating very hard.

Yeah!  Nana and Papa!

Suppertime with all of our friends.

Liesl and her good friend Alice.

These are 2 of Liesl's best friends from school.  We managed to close down the party!

Snow Time

Yippy! Snow!
We are thrilled to have lots of snow sticking on the ground already.
Liesl will be doing her first organized activity this winter.
 She is taking X country ski lessons, apparently it is a blast (I hope).
 I get to do my job as Chalet Parent (only one time).  We are excited for it to start.

This is so funny, it looks like ping pong balls are flying around our yard.

Liesl is a huge help shoveling the walk.

Here's my girl in the Coke hat.  This has appeared before in the blog.  It is still her favorite.
It was mine as a child.  It was probably from the Bonners.  Sara P must have one too, hiding somewhere!
