Cafe Jaffa for falafel and fries. This is how I lured Rob to Boston to use up our free pass to the Museum of Science that expired 12/31/13 and guess what? It was 12/31/13.  We were not the only ones who wanted to use a pass before it expired. The place was packed. But first we stopped for lunch, frozen yogurt and a walk on Newbury Street.

Georgia found a perfect thing to wear when she's in certain moods at urban Outfitters and finally we made it to the Museum and stayed  until it closed.

Lily and I went to the Planetarium show on the moon and it was amazing!

Merry Christmas to Santa, the huge new Polar Bear and Miss Cookie who didn't bark at Santa but snuck right into her new bed.

Georgia has a new friend, great for snuggling and sleeping with.

Cookie is very excited by her new antler!

Merry Christmas to all! and to all a good night! Rob tends to nap in busy places during big holidays.

Almost all of us made it in. G-pop took the picture.

Georgia winding down by performing some important experiments with her new chemistry set.

More snow!

And a red tailed hawk on the pine branch, calling through the thick snow.

We might actually have a tradition! People were wondering when we'd arrive this year.  We stuck with two songs this year. Frosty and We wish you a merry Christmas. We had them down by the end. Then we actually pulled off Silent Night. Lovely.

Georgia's B-day

As you can see everyone is excited that it's Georgia's b-day! Cookie insisted on wearing the hat the whole day! (not really. I can't believe we even got a pic!)

Dressed in birthday finery including new school owl slippers. With her wonderful teacher and opening presents with Papa.

Cookie is worried about the new addition. And below Humphrey the school hamster enjoys some candlelight with a festive hat as well.

Happy Birthday dear Georgia!  Glad you enjoyed your birthday jello that you requested.

Sledding party

Great decorations and great sledding at a holiday party. The full moon made an appearance over the snow.

The Christmas Revels

Oh, how I love Sander's Theater.  Last year the girls both threatened not to come, but somehow they came again. They had a great time and so did I, although the snow storm on the way home, I did not enjoy.

Posing for pics and dancing in the lobby with a big crowd!

Much smiling after the festive dancing! (Although Lily hid in that picture below. Sneak.)

Gorgeous snow falling on stage.

Uh oh. Real snow falling outside. it took me a LONG time to get home and I couldn't complain because I had been quite sure it wouldn't snow. But we made it home and into our warm beds eventually.

Band concert

Lily and the band rocking holiday songs. NES gym was the place to be.
