Holiday Spirit

All of our Christmas decorations are sitting snugly in boxes in England, so this year the decorations are sparse and mostly homemade. 
Our little tree and stockings Jack made

Handprint wreath and countdown to Christmas chain

View of the frozen lake
You know what else is in storage? All our baking supplies. I guess that is a good thing though since it is keeping me from making too many sweets. But it wouldn't be the holidays without sweets, so Jack did talk us in to letting him bake cookies one night
Our apartment hosted a Christmas party and since Lily had a cute outfit to wear, Jack wanted to wear his Spiderman jammies.

Trying to get a picture with both of them is almost impossible

But they are so cute together that I keep trying

Jack and Lily with their friends at the holiday party
Jack and Lily have been spending a lot of time practicing their dance moves lately since Christmas music has been playing round the clock
This past week I tried to take some self portraits with the kiddos:

And one with all three of us
Nothing like sweet baby kisses
And here is an old photo that I forgot to post, but right outside our window every morning there are two bald eagles who sit on the tree next to the lake. It is a beautiful sight
