Santa Baby

At the Foothill Elementary Craft Fair, the girls had a somewhat uneasy visit with Santa, who they recognized as Mr. Thomason (a family friend). I think they didn't really know whether they should share their lists, or confess their Christmas wants and prayers with their friend's dad. Poor Billy couldn't even get his own kids to go along...they got a little perturbed by the whole thing.

Ah well. I thought he made a great Santa. Especially with those cowboy boots! ;-)

Soccer Stars!

Well, you might infer from the title that we had a victorious All Star game. Alas, we did not. We were simply outplayed. In fact, the whole league was outplayed. We won one of eight games. Yikes. But the girls did seem to enjoy the game, played well, and took the loss in stride, which made me proud.

Here are some dynamite pictures taken by C&C Photography in conjunction with team photos.

NOW you see why I called them soccer stars? Yeah...they are stars to me!

What the heck?

That seems to be appropriate caption for this poor coach, as he deals with my girls in their tutus and shinguards.

The girls are practicing for the All Star game this Saturday, where we will play our mountain nemisis, Yosemite (really Oakhurst, but Yosemite High School is in Oakhurst, so it's ALMOST Yosemite). It will be the first time our girls play an all-girls game. Should be interesting!

Just a few extra pics from our formal family photo op. Because after we've worn out the men and the children and the dogs, we do have some fun with these...

Yes, we can entertain ourselves indefinitely!
