My brother is really getting into photography lately, and he's so talented. I asked him to take some silhouette photos of my kids and I can not be more pleased. I was going to hang them in my bathroom, but now I want them more visible.

We got the outfit for isla for Christmas, and registered her in this little intro to dance class. Today was finally the day. She loves it, and is already looking forward to more classes. She saw all the pictures on the wall or the other dances dressed up for shows and she really wanted to have a fancier dress.
Our favorite twin family, the Pratts invited us to spend the day at millenium place with them. Wyatt's ear drum had perforated from an ear infection earlier that week so we had to miss the swimming- but we spent te morning on the inflatables, in the play park. After lunch and naps we returned for skating!
It was our first time with the kids. Isla was a natural and zipped around with the frame support. Wyatt found it very frustrating and could not get moving. Girl skates have te benefit of the pick in the front for assisted movement, but on hockey skates wyatt couldn't get anywhere with or without the frame.
We had a low key Christmas this year. We put up a little tiny tree because we have a toddler that likes to get into everything. We like to do a few things every year. I love traditions!
Barbie dream house. THis is not on the top of my list for favorite Cristmas activities. But I tried to be a good sport. No matter how hard we tried, it would not stay together. The kids didn't mind because I let them eat the candy.
Christmas morning. Santa brought this big doll house to isla. It barely made it thanks to UPS- I opted to pick it up from the warehouse Christmas Eve just to ensure there was no disappointed girls in the morning. Took Brett and I all night to put together. These are the moments when I feel like a pretty good parent :)
We always go to the live nativity in Spruce Grove before Christmas. Reminds us of the true meaning of the season. It's a short little show, but you can feel the truth of the message. After we head to mike and heathers for Thai food. Delicious. Fed spiritually and physically!
I missed pictures of Christmas with the Fixsens, Drever Christmas on Boxing Day. It's nice to be close to both our families, but it makes it busy when we need to see everyone. It was a good year. Onto 2014!
