Nutcracker Ballet

Thank you to Clark for treating the whole family (less baby Ashley) to a Christmas treat -- the Nutcracker Ballet at the Cultural Center in TST.  We had a great time, and enjoyed great weather, too!

Merry Christmas!

What a great Christmas!  First, we celebrated Christmas Eve at Lisa yee-yee's with family and friends, then we got ready for Santa later that night and he found us!  Christmas morning we were busy opening presents, then we popped in to meet baby Gabby Tan, and then finally headed over to Christmas lunch at the Simmon's (which lead into dinner). Thank you to all our family and friends for helping us make Christmas extra special this year :)

Ramping up to Christmas

Video 562 - Every night we have a Christmas disco to celebrate the holidays.  Here's the start of the tradition.  The girls LOVE to dance now and we do it every night -- usually with the lights turned off and Christmas tree lights on "flash" mode.

Lauren loves her Christmas dress.

Hong Kong post - thank you for taking the time to open Natalie's and Lauren's letters to Santa and then sending back hand-written, personalized Christmas cards to them. The girls are thrilled!

Thanks to Ba-ba for ordering the Christmas tree and working with the girls to decorate. They LOVE it. And now, most importantly, the girls are reassured that Santa will know where to leave their presents.

Pancake breakfast. Love family time.

Thanks to Winnie and family for hosting gingerbread house decorating yesterday. The girls loved turning the barren ginger village into a candy-full masterpiece.
