dance recital and a church Christmas pageant. We spent a lot of our holiday break doing Gretchen stuff - we went to the Museum of Science and Industry and the Art Institute. We baked cookies and made ornaments for gifts. We saw Santa at the Lions Pancake Breakfast. We played in the snow. We watched lots of holiday movies and cartoons. We sang carols and took lots of pictures. Not that previous years were bad but this was the first year I think she's really going to remember. She is going to connect swedish meatballs and tamales to Christmas. She knows Tres Leches cake is only for New Years. She will expect to go to a museum or similar institution over the holiday break. She'll know this time of years means fun! The boys aren't quite there yet but when they are, Gretchen will be an old pro! Hope everyone had a great holiday! There are links to pictures and videos on the blog.
