A New Beginning

Henry is off on his next big adventure at CDT Classical School where he will join Margaret & Malcolm on their five-day per week school adventures. We are so excited for Henry and what the next season in his education will offer. 
Oh my heart!

Christmas 2016

Better late than never with these Christmas photos!
Computer Advent Calendar is always a Christmas treat!

One of my Jade plants is flowering. First time in 20 years. No joke. I've had these plants since college. Amazingly resilient to neglect and low watering habits. 

Michael and the kids made gingerbread houses. From scratch. Another win for the Papa!


Some fun Christmas Eve photos. Evie is wearing a sweet "My First Christmas" tutu!



Backing and tree decorating are top priorities!


Christmas Eve dinner with loved ones!


Homemade pizza is our Christmas Eve tradition.

So much fun today. Can't quite make it through dinner. 



A Christmas Evening recital




 

Opening the Christmas Crackers at dessert.




The days after Christmas were filled with adventure as well. 



Viewing the lights at Nemacolin. They had the largest gingerbread house. 








Hiking at Ohiopyle. Chilly but well worth it. 





Ice cream treat after hiking.
