Christmas in Michigan

Here are some pictures from our Christmas vacation.

The cousins on Mary Kay's side of the family.

Both Katie and Mary will be helpful big sisters.

Before the action starts.

Worse than a lump of coal. (I haven't figured out how iPhoto works with Blogger yet. I may never.)

The prime rib. Or as Mary calls it, the roast beast.

Merry Christmas!

A Bomb Went off in our House

Please consider contributing to the Derek and Mary Kay disaster relief pfund.

Wizard of Oz Barbies

Mom and Dad got Katie and Mary all the Wizard of Oz Barbies for Christmas. Katie was excited about all of them. Mary really wanted Glinda. She was sorely disappointed to have found herself with the responsibility of opening the wicked witch.

9 month/ Christmas pictures

We took Alina to get her 9 month old pictures today... you will probably see one of these again in your Christmas card, but here are a few from this morning.

My personal favorite (this picture changes depending on which browser you use... I'm talking about the first Santa hat picture) :)

Mary Tells a Joke

Sure, she's the straight man in this joke, but she carries it anyway.

Katie's Dance Practice

They let Vittoria in to Katie's dance class for a little while today. Here's what she's working on.

Katie the Photographer, part 2

We got a new camera. At almost the exact same time, Katie started insisting on taking pictures. Attached are some of her finer pieces. I'm glad electrons are almost free.

She is better than most at getting pretty good pictures of Mary.

Here's a funny one of Norm.

And, of course, the self portraits.

She has also taken pictures of most of the toys, so she can later identify all the damage Mary and the new baby do.

UPDATE: Rare behind the scenes video footage of the artist in action.

Also, some of the pics that she took.
