Friday evening the girls and I headed over to the church for our annual Christmas party. There we ate lots of yummy food, listened to some great music, and hung out with Santa. All the girls seemed to love it, especially the Santa part. Ava sat on his lap more than anyone. She kept cutting in line to sit on his lap again. It was quite amusing. Later that evening Anna and Lainie decided that it wasn't the real Santa. Anna said to me, "that wasn't really Santa mom, that was Amy's dad." Little stinker.
Please note: I look absolutely huge in this photo. I am very large these days, measuring 30 cm at my mere 24 weeks, but I swear I'm not this big!

We got another round of snowfall and school was canceled for the second time in one week! This time we went out as a family and built a snowman. It took us a good 2 hours to make, but we had a good time. Ava...maybe not so much by the end. She sat on the porch and ate crackers most the time because she lost her balance too much in the deep snow. I'm estimating we had a least a 15 inches. I don't know if you can tell by the picture of Anna, but she lost her other front tooth about a week after the first. Now she says that all she wants for Christmas is her two front teeth.

We ventured out to Pine Valley (up the road 20 minutes) to find ourselves a tree this year. It took us awhile, but ended up with what we thought would be a great tree. (Later on I discovered this particular kind of tree made my house smell like urine. Note to self: Do not get a pinion pine next year.) We ended up decorating it the next day. Paul took charge of the picture taking, while I handed out the ornaments.
PS. I've tried to get that top picture not huge a million times and I have no idea why it's still large. So sorry.
