We went out on Tuesday for a visit with friends (the family of one of Colin’s school friends) at the Sealife Aquarium.
It is unseasonably warm this week so we took advantage of the weather and went camping. We are having a great time and the kids are learning to camp when it’s a little cooler (1-7•C) in the mornings and evenings. It is lovely camping weather at 15•C in the days.

Supper outside on Dec28th!
And the annual watching of Mr Bean in Christmas jammies.
I am questioning why we bought them toys for Christmas…
The box quickly became an airplane.
Clouds came along and interfered with the flying.
It was pajama/board games day for Laura at school today, and since Colin has been diagnosed with strep throat he also had a pajama day. That didn’t stop them from playing outside.
Laura’s Grade hosted the class Winter Party. She and 2 friends made the snacks, including shopping for ingredients.
Laura is sewing a pillowcase for Colin’s Christmas gift. She is also learning valuable life skills!
This is how Colin shares a double bed.
We came to Houston for the weekend, which provided a good excuse to fulfill an annual tradition and go to the Nutcracker. Colin came for the first time this year.

This production was brand new, and gorgeous. Lots of cute details, such as little bees dancing around the flowers in the Waltz of the Flowers. The kids enjoyed pretending to be bees:
