Possible New Addition

Rachel's boyfriend's cat had kittens and
Rachel has adopted this one as her own.
She has named her Noodles.
Joe has named her Dog Food.
For now, we are keeping her upstairs and Freckles downstairs.
Hopefully he will get used to her smell and quit wanting to eat her.

Three Bikes

Natalie got a new bike for Christmas,
but she did not like it very much.

I got a very short video of her riding it.

Natalie was happier to ride her old bike.

Natalie likes her old bike much better.

Natalie likes her tricycle best of all.

Natalie can ride her trike very fast.

Natalie Montana?

Natalie was singing along with her new guitar
She danced and sang
She even played the guitar on her back
She can sing along with several Hannah songs

Silly Kids

Natalie crashed Rachel's and Mallory's head together

Holiday Party

A few of the kids and I went to the Downs Syndrome holiday party
There was face painting
And hand painting
There were sister hugs
There was dancing
There was singing
Lots of singing
There was friend hugging
There were very cool ballon Rudolph's
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
And a slightly distorted Christmas tree
