Wonderful Christmas break!

Well, today is the last day of our break. It is so nice to have a spouse that is also a teacher. We have enjoyed every moment of our time off together, and we look forward to the year ahead.

I thought I would share a "few" pictures:
The first is what Emma thought of Santa this year...petrified would be a good year. However, being the "GREAT" Mom that I am...I just HAD to get a picture. So, here it is
Emma and Santa 2006

So, Christmas morning when Emma heard that Santa had been to our house....and he left lots of toys. I THOUGHT she would be excited. She was..petrified. .. she tought he was still there. We had to practically drag her out of her room. She clung to her Dad's leg.

She enjoyed the rest of the day...and she looked oh so sweet:)

Two days later Emma got her first professional hair cut. I have cut about a foot off on my own, but I decided it was time for someone who knows what they're doing to give it a try.

She would only sit on the chair if the beautician's daughter sat on the chair first:).

Can you tell that she got it cut? Not really, but it did make it easier to comb through, and that was the goal!

We also enjoyed a GREAT trip into Yellowstone National Park on a snow coach over break. To see the beauty and peace in the park is magical. The shimmering snow that has not been touched is so amazing! Emma loved it too, and she was truly an angel for the entire trip. Here are a few pictures:

It looks like a great break and holiday season! Emma looks like she enjoyed most of it and I laughed about still being afraid of santa on Christmas morning! Carl and I really want to go to Yellowstone in the winter and your pictures convinced me that we have to! Not that we don't have a lot of beauty here in Alaska in the winter but I still love Yellowstone...

My daughter has been quite terrified of Santa! Glad your daughter got over her fear to enjoy the rest of the day. What lovely photos!
