Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Mary Poppins

One of the Christmas presents the girls received was tickets to Mary Poppins.  I (Nicolle) got take them.  It was so fun.

Top 10 list

Guest post by Greg:

Here are the top 10 Christmas cards we received this year...

#10- this is from our milk man.  By about the middle of December it was one of the only cards we had received, and since we moved 2 times in the last 2 years we thought it might stay that way, so we treasured this card from the guy who comes so early in the morning that we have never seen him. 

#9:  from Greg's Uncle Bob.  He is in the tie business and has given Greg so many ties in his lifetime that he automatically makes any top 10 list we ever create.

#8: Our Arizona friends had lots of Sun Devil references.  
#7:  Our WA friends had a great beach backdrop.
#6:  this is the first card we received.  Well done, Cooks!
#5, because these babies are adorable and we are so happy for the Martins.
#4- our mail lady held this card hostage from Dec. 8th until Dec. 23rd... She knew how valuable it was.
#3- we know Carlos is smiling because he gets to sit in Santa's lap next.
#2- because the glare from the flash combined with Gordon's bald spot is brilliant.
#1:  all of these family members included photos from our favorite beach!

catching up, again

Christmas Festivities

Christmas Parade in the pouring rain.  Usually it doesn't rain in Seattle, it just drizzles, but on this day it RAINED and we got soaked.

2nd annual Christmas Eve Nativity with the Allens and the Taits.  (This year on the stage with "special effects.")
