The Future Dance Center had it’s annual Winter Showcase last Saturday. This show is a nice little holiday tradition that gives the parents a chance to see what the kids have learned so far...and guess what!?! I got to dance too! Lori and I both performed with our adult hip-hop class this year and it was such a blast! It was nice to dress up and get on stage again :) Maybe we'll get to do the recital this year (hehehe)!
Here are some more pics and a couple clips...
Our first performance together in the same show :)

It's was bound to happen sooner or later...the kids had their first "Snow Day" of the year on Friday! I had to take them to work with me for a little while in the morning, but by the time we got all snug and warm back in the house...that was IT we weren't going anywhere! Sooo...we decided that cookies would be a fun thing to do!
Kayla and Josh did pretty much everything by themselves. I supervised, of course, but they rolled, cut and decorated the whole batch! Tabitha and Steve sent them a box of 101 different cookie cutters for Christmas this year and that's why we have cars, dogs, trucks, footballs, helmets...oh yeah, and a Yankees cap!?!!?! YIKES!!! (hahaha)
Here's some more pics...enjoy!
Yes, that IS a Yankees cap amongst my Christmas cookies!!!

Last Sunday afternoon we spent at Pom's house making the pierogies for our traditional Polish Christmas Eve dinner (and a few dozen more to freeze to have throughout the year). I think we made 23 dozen cheese and around 12 dozen sauerkraut. Pom made the fillings and dough, Lori and I did the rolling, Kayla and Mom stuffed, Tom boiled and buttered...we were an excellent assembly line!

We got to taste test some of the broken ones and they were yummy! Can't wait 'til Christmas Eve dinner!

It's that time of year again...we took the kids to see Santa and his reindeer at Niagara Hobby. This is one of my favorite Christmas traditions. On Josh's wish list... a Wii (surprise, surprise) and some more GeoTrax. Kayla asked Santa for the Prince Caspian (Chronicles of Narnia) movie and some surprises. Santa asked Josh if he wanted some surprises too, and he said "No"...just bring the Wii Santa :)
As always, he reminded them they have to clean their room and go to bed early on Christmas Eve...I love Santa!
