Hello! It's late January! And here are some Christmas pictures!
Rufflebum played "Mary" in our community group's spontaneous Christmas play. She took her role very seriously and defended "baby Jesus" from rogue shepherds and crawling sheep.
She then went home and for weeks continued to play her role during "rest" time. Every baby doll in our house became known as "baby Jesus", and I was frequently scolded for waking "baby Jesus" up by being too loud.
In good south Texas fashion, we experienced some beautiful summer days right before Christmas and celebrated the season with popsicles while watching the elementary kids walking home from the school next door.
This was our "Christmas Card" this year - posted on Facebook on Christmas Eve! Early in the season I looked at the list of things I wanted to accomplish and Christmas cards made me itch all over and want to curl up in a ball and hide. So I gave myself permission to skip them. You should try it some time. It was lovely and freeing.
Christmas morning was special - the girls each got one gift from us. Rufflebum got a doll house (which she had been requesting for awhile). Picture below is blurry because girl wouldn't stand still for a picture, she was too busy playing.
Burrow got this (see picture). I have no idea what to call it. But Mr. San Antonio wants me to remove the batteries at my earliest convenience. Since I'm only just now getting around to posting Christmas photos on the blog... I'm guessing those batteries will be in there for awhile.
The day after Christmas I came down with the flu and was quarantined at my parents' house for 5 days. Mr. SA was super dad and caught this amazing picture of Burrow. Completely sums her up. Oh how I adore her happy smile.
Fortunately no one else got sick and we started 2015 off healthy and looking forward to the year ahead.
I hope you are having a Happy New Year as well! :)
