Tucson Christmas: Grandma

I'm back, here with my second installment of my many Christmas photos.

These photos will feature Grandma.  Grandma likes to teach things.  Here she is teaching Grace how to play a Peruvian game called Sapo.  She tried to teach me too and I was terrible at it.

Grace also learned a ton about baking.

We all benefited from these lessons in other ways.

This apple pie says "Gracie's Pie" in letters made from dough scraps.

One of the best projects they did was a collaboration.  Grace said the pool needed a boat and Grandma listened.

Grandma came up with the Styrofoam design and helped Grace to carefully paint it.

Thanks Grandma!

A Little Spinning Music

Hello everyone!  After I made my last post, my new computer broke and had to be sent back to the company!  I had grand plans to get our Christmas pictures up sooner, but that derailed my efforts.  I should have my computer back tomorrow.  In the meantime, please enjoy some pictures and a video!

We're having a bit of warmish weather and we're making the most of it!

Clara's eyes are healing well we think!  She has been experimenting with tantrums on occasion but she is still generally sweet.  She talks all the time.  She is working on her letters and asks questions all the time.  Her favorite one is "Why?"  She loves to help, but she gets the words mixed up when she asks and says "help me!" instead of "help you." English is confusing!

Uncle Ian gifted Grace this very loud but very fun train for Christmas.  Clara loves to dance and spin to its music!  I love how she asks Grace repeatedly, "On please.  ON PLEASE."

We went sledding at the neighbor's house!

Grace went down with Daddy.

Then she went down by herself!

Ada and Grace loved going down together.

Baby Iris got in on the action too!  

Grace had a blast doing this.  I think we're going to have to buy a sled!

Tucson Christmas

Happy New Year! 

I did a terrible job of documenting our December, and I apologize.  One post in a month is probably a new low here at Learning Curve!  I'm not much for resolutions, but I do try to do my best, and that hopefully means posting more!

We'll start with Grandpa.

A serenade for Clara.

A trip to the park.

Grandpa goes down the slide!

Clara loves to give hugs and Grandpa is not left out.

Grandpa makes great food!

He has a fascinating apple peeler.

And very importantly, he has a dog!
