Last few Christmas pictures

These are my last few random pictures from Christmas!
Here are Abigail and 'Lindsey' in the matching dresses that Grandma Minota made for them.

Every year we get an ornament for the kids that reflects something that happened in their life in the past year, or something that reflects their personality and current interests.  This year, Abigail got an ornament that says "Nutcracker Suite" on it -- it plays part of the Waltz of the Snowflakes and the ballerinas twirl around in a circle.  Very fitting, since we took the kids in December to see the Nutcracker Ballet for the first time, and since Abigail got her first 'real' ballet outfit from Grandpa & Grandma Minota this year, too.

David got a reindeer made of various tools, since most of his free time is spent using tools to build things, and since we gave him his very first real tool set for Christmas!

My mom also brought a couple of 'family-history' ornaments for me to add to my collection.  I remember these ornaments hanging on our tree for all of my growing-up years.  Thank you for sharing, Dad &

My grandma always got us a new ornament (still does!)at Christmas time. I like your family's tradition of getting one that matches their interests/personalities!
