Ballroom Dancing . . .

And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. Freidrich Nietzsche

I have the greatest and most talented kids . . . I suppose every mom thinks that, but I am sure I am right! LOL!

So, the kids big Christmas present this year was a years worth of Ballroom Dancing Lessons. They have been twice now since Christmas and already the want to sign up for more than once a week. They're working on the Rumba now and making great progress. Here are some shots from the first lesson; the extra guy in the first pic is their dance instructor, and the fourth dancer is Ryan's friend Sophia.

Merry Christmas to all ! ! ! !

I keep saying how big the kids are getting; but, everyone is mom's baby on Christmas morning especially when they discover the stockings. We had much love and good cheer and hope the same for all. We played board games (the start of a bloody week long Risk game), watched movies and enjoyed Prime rib (turned out perfect :) ). It was perfect end to a great year. And of course even Piper got her Christmas chewy.

Here's a shot of them signing up for "their own" Bank Accounts.
