Here’s Willow either singing Christmas carols or really over the holidays.

This can’t be comfortable…

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before, but our these doors make for good card holders.

We put on Muppet Christmas Carol and the cat actually watched it. She liked the rats.

Here’s the vegetarian moussaka we made (Disney Food & Wine recipe) for Christmas eve (and also for Christmas dinner):

A Potato dish we tried for Christmas. Wasn’t super happy with the way this one cooked. A Disney recipe. Think it needed more time in the oven but we were tight for oven space.

Making the vegetable stacks – another Disney recipe. This one was a hit. So delicious!

You guys have to try out this Spacecraft 3D app. It’s SO cool! The app gives you this image that you either put on your phone or monitor, and then the app uses it to anchor a virtual 3D spacecraft! It’s a pic of me using it via my computer. (I screencapped the app screen.)

Connor is getting so big! He got a phone for Christmas, his first one. He’s predictably glued to it.
