Yesterday morning was Violet's school christmas play. Her class were sheperds. Next year they'll have bigger parts. This pic is of her class walking in.

Violet being shy. She refused to look at me and kept hiding her head the whole time.

She bit her bottom lip the entire time. This is what she does when she's nervous or uncomfortable.

Grandma and Grandpa Young were able to make it.

Saturday was Chris's birthday. He wanted cookies instead of a cake. So we made sugar cookies with icing.
I also made a big lasagna for dinner that night.

I've learned that I can not tell Violet what gifts we are getting people anymore. Saturday morning I called her upstairs to wrap Chris's gift. Before heading up she ran to Chris and said "It's a surprise Daddy. We're wrapping your coffee mug." I told her we're not supposed to say what the present is and that it's supposed to be a surprise when they open it. Her response was, "It's ok. We can still hide it". I don't think she quite gets it.
