Viva Las Vegas

 All Mariana wanted for Christmas was to see her friend Abby who is now in Las Vegas after living in Japan for 3 years. Thankfully, we made it happen. She had a long weekend there and enjoyed every minute with her long-lost friend!

We had a snow day, and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it. There wasn't a ton of it, but there was just enough for a little bit of accumulation and some sledding fun (It's hard to see it in the photos of the grass, but it was there.)

Wedding weekend

 Austin, Allia and Gloria sang with a great group of musicians in the wedding of two other musicians this weekend. It was so beautiful!

Sister time

 We are enjoying a little extra time with Allia while school is on break!

She got it!

 She is officially a licensed driver. Look out, everyone!

Happy 16th Birthday!

 She has been waiting for this day for so long! Sadly it fell on Saturday, so no drivers' license yet. After family gifts, we went and got lots of birthday freebies, had a nice lunch at Gringos, and celebrated in every other way we could.

We sure love our beautiful 16 year old Gloria!

Happy 12th Birthday, Anastasia!

We celebrated with family gifts and special meals. I can't believe it's only one more year before she is a teenager!

She had her party the next day with lots of fun friends and outdoor games. They were such a fun group to celebrate our fun, energetic girl!
