A busy week for Anja

Anja has now has a new tooth. She also has eaten solid food and rolled over - all in the last week of December. I actually haven't seen her roll over. I left her on the floor for a moment on her back and when I returned, she was on her tummy (and smiling)!! Hopefully, I will catch her in action sometime soon.

Merry Christmas!

Here is our Christmas card from this year. We had fun putting it together and thought the "comic" theme was perfect since Kip is such a big comic book fan. Happy Christmas, everyone!

The Christmas Pageant

The Christmas Pageant at church was great. Gus and Johan were darling little horses and sang "Away in the Manager." Check out the video clip where you will hear me sing!! Anja was a sweet baby Jesus, though she didn't last on stage the entire performance. Their cousin Addy was an angel - you'll see her in the bottom left corner of the video. Enjoy the pictures and video!

Starring ANJA as Baby Jesus

If anyone is interested in seeing Anja in her first theater performance, she will be playing Baby Jesus at our church Christmas Pageant. Here are the details....

Sunday, December 21

Community Covenant Church
901 Humboldt Ave. North, Minneapolis, MN, 55411

Gus and Johan will most likely be sheep and sing "Away in a Manger" that evening, but I can't guarantee it. They refused to go on stage at the last practice. We'll see!!!

Anja's New Moves

Anja has really started to grow up lately. She is happy on her tummy because she can hold her head up so easily (still no rolling over). She also enjoys the standing position a lot of the time - either on a lap or in the saucer. She is constantly watching her brothers as they play and build around her.

Lucia Day

Johan, Anja and I headed over to Bethlehem Covenant (my childhood church) and attended their Lucia festival. I have been in the program almost every year, but I decided to sit in the audience this year. It was very festive and we enjoyed being with family and friends. Mor Mor (grandma Nancy) sang in the choir and cousin Evelyn was a Tomte this year. Sarah, Elsa and Becky are in the top picture. Anja is sitting with Papa after the show. We had a great time. God Jul!

Good times with SANTA!

It was perfectly snowy outside when we went to visit Santa on Monday afternoon. We were the only ones visitors at the time, so the kids were able to hang out on his lap for a bit and talk with Santa. Johan asked for a cherry picker and Gus asked for trains and a garbage truck. Anja was perfectly content sitting on Santa's lap. Gus is really starting to wonder about it all - questions like "how does Santa get UP the chimney?" It is fun to watch him try to figure it all out.
