Ellie and her Bosom buddy Zoe working hard to earn some dinero. Craft supplies were in demand. My good friend Lisa aka Zoe’s mom gave them some earning opportunities…. “Cinderellie, Cinderellie, night and day it’s Cinderellie".” Ellie earned $17.00, it didn’t burn a hole in her pocket for long!

School Breaks are what kids live for! Schedule and routine go out the window and are replaced by spontaneity, adventure and fun, fun, fun! We tried out a new attraction in town…. JUMP STREET! A blast for kids and adults!Photos courtesy of Lisa Heuer

We packed in a full day on Christmas. Presents at home in the morning, a highlight was the custom quilts Nana made for Daimon and Ellie. We headed to Granma Teri and Grandpa Jim’s for breakfast with the Spratlley Clan. Finished the day at Aunt Cody’s for dinner with the Brown Clan… cousin’s galore! It was wonderful to celebrate with all our family.

Uncle Josh and Aunt Nic hosted Christmas Eve. Smores by the camp fire, snacks, and plenty of socializing. The kids enjoyed a present game of their own as did the adults. We were surrounded by aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and friends. It was great to celebrate with so many loved ones.
Before heading off to Christmas Eve parties we felt it only fitting to have a beautiful meal, minus all the work and clean up. We celebrated at The Deli (a local favorite) with our good friends The Heuer’s and cousin Wes. Our meal started with a delicate puff pastry filled with roasted vegetables and goat cheese and a creamy white sauce. That was followed with a green salad with fresh made salami and mozzarella and a light vinaigrette. Then it was filet and grilled shrimp, roasted potatoes, asparagus and hollandaise. We completed the meal with chocolate lava cakes with berries and vanilla gelato. SATISFACTION!Photos courtesy of Lisa Heuer and Benny
