Epiphany Celebration

We ended up with an extended celebration of Epiphany, which I think is fantastic.  Grace's "Little Women" groups hosted an Epiphany Party for the "Little Flowers" group.  The big girls put on a cute Epiphany play (Avila was Baby Jesus!), had games and decorations, and even gave gifts to the Little Flowers!
The girls also had lots of food, punch, and a King Cake for everyone to enjoy!
We celebrated at home with a nice dinner and then gave the kids a set of Waldorf Element Stackers, which Andrew had made for them.  They were so excited!
Remember, the Vatican continues their celebration until February 2 -- keep the party going :)

Celebrating the Season!

We have spent a wonderful week celebrating the Christmas Season with Andrew home from work and tons of fun family time!  We spent quiet days at home enjoying movie and books and food as well as fun adventures in Indy and around town.

Of course, PeterXavier's idea of Heaven is permission to scale the walls!
Christopher did a great job, outclimbing both of his parents!
We spent one lovely afternoon ice skating with friends.

Once the snow melted, we headed indoors to make festive marshmallow snow men!

And today, it was back to the old grind.  Daddy headed back to work while the kids and I broke out the school books.  It is nice to get back to routines, but the freedom of break is always missed!
