Houston Christmas 2011

Our Christmas celebrations started off with a visit to Houston to see Grandma Judy, Laura, Rob and Will. Highlights included riding the train at Hermann Park, a saxaphone performance from Will, opening presents, lots of reading, brunch with the Hancocks, and dinner out at Katherine’s favorite Mexican restaurant Chuy’s. And, of course, lots of fun with Will on the trampoline. Click on the group picture for a slideshow.

Gearing up for Christmas this year involved a few of our favorite activities — going to see Santa, a visit from Aunt Mona, and decorating a tree — along with a few new adventures including going to an aquarium in holiday clothes and heading to a local farm to pick and cut down our Christmas tree. Claire also went with some friends to her third annual performance of The Nutcracker. Click on the picture of Claire and Juliet making gingerbread men with Aunt Mona for a slideshow.
