Christmas Eve 2007

We have been making great strides around here this week...
no, no homeschooling breakthroughs,and no, the plumbing is still not
working properly, but look at this....
There is Peace on Earth!
Well, at least in this little corner of the Garden State, oh yeah and only in this room..
the others are filled with this....
This little fairy keeps running through my house singing Christmas songs at the top of her
(rather powerful) lungs!
We did get a peaceful few poses in front of our tree Yesterday before leaving for my nieces
house for dinner.Naturally they all came too late for the Christmas cards, but here they are...

My sister found these adorable matching dresses for her and her Bitty Baby.
Naturally, she had to sing to her too. :-)
Think Santa will be fooled by this angelic expression?
My sister offered to drive us all up in her van to her daughter's house.
Princess sat in the back with her cousin and her boyfriend to watch movies.
My poor niece was feeling really terrible with a cold, but this was her big sister's first
"family dinner" and she didn't want to disappoint her
by staying home.

Naturally, where Princess goes there is dancing...
Farmer Dad (on the left)and my "little brother" Mike look on as Princess and her Aunt Adi (Mike's fiance)
dance around the living room. It was nice to have them take time out of grad school
and drive up from Virginia to attend.Princess snuggling up with her "big sister" Amanda, who did a wonderful job cooking
two hams, a turkey and many side dishes to keep us all fed and happy!
Opening presents in front of the tree... I didn't get a picture of the whole group, which is a shame.It was the first time Amanda
and Eddie had both families together for a "holiday dinner" and we all had a lovely time.
Naturally, the heavens opened up on the drive home and the roads were even flooded out
in a couple of spots.We all made it home safely, this time the three of us in the way back, watching a movie.
I do like being chauffeured.

Sounds like a very nice family dinner.

Princess looks like such an angel in her red Christmas dress.

Peace on earth...if only we could have it all year long! Even all week long! Wishing you and yours a blessed holiday. I'm so happy you had such a lovely family dinner!

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
