Sasha gets a Nintendo 3DS from Uncle Beans & Aunt Dawn for Christmas

It was a low key and quiet present opening.


I guess she kind of likes it.

Mommy brought home Angry Birds treats!

The Christmas Parade at the beach

Anya was pretty excited for it to start


Pooh Bear!

The horror of the Go-Carts.  Alan takes a few steps back from the curb.

Anya liked the floats


And this tiny drum major.

Fancy decorated cycles

One of the big balloons


Marching bands from all the local schools

The "Ghost Buster" ambulance

This was the biggest balloon in the parade

This snowman balloon if sponsored by TCC (One of the schools where Holly teaches)

Maybe next year Holly and Sasha will be able to walk with it.

The Winter Festival at Sasha's school

First she ran in a mile fun-run

Hear that Grandpa Wiseman?  A Mile Fun Run!

Here she is crossing the finish line.


Playing some games in the gym.


Anya scores too!

Playing with the Keva Blocks again.  They love these things.

They did a great job!

First we ate lunch...


Then on to the presents!


Everybody tears right in.

Santa has not yet earned Coleman's trust.  (Hint to Santa...  Toy's = Trust)


Anya goes back for a big Goodbye Hug.

Sasha shows off the sign at the Reception Center for the condo.  This amuses Coleman.

Anya got a new stomp-rocket for Christmas

They fly really high, especially when Daddy stomps on it!

Mommy gives it a stomp too!
