On Wednesday Monet started a Fairy Tale Ballet class. She was so thrilled with all the new ballet clothes I bought her, she could hardly stand it!
The theme is The Little Mermaid, so they got to put on costumes and dance to the music. She did really well, following along and dancing. She was really cute.

And then she had to take off the costume and had a meltdown!

Hayley Anderson took some really cute photos of Monet last month. Here are a few of my favorites.

Yesterday at about 1:00, I was cleaning my house, feeling like I was going crazy. So I threw on our ski stuff, called Riley and Chloe and raced up to Sundance. I'm so glad I did, because it was so fun and so warm.
Monet had on her new ski outfit. She was decked out from head to long johns.
Grant, Becky and Larry came up to watch Monet.
How cute are these two.

Monet had a blast. Riley was flying down the hill with her, he was even catching air on some jumps. Monet loved it, she kept yelling, "faster!" I'm so grateful for a brother, who I 100 % trust racing down the hill with my precious cargo! People kept saying, "look at that kid with that baby!!"
Super fun, happy day, finished with tortilla soup and cookies in the deli.

Christmas morning.
Monet went right to Santa's cookies and milk.
Then she spotted her high chair and cradle.

Grandpa and nana gave Monet a Disneyland castle and she could hardly wait to open it.
More than the presents Monet was in love with playing with Wyatt and Scout.

Monet gave grandpa this picture of Sadie, and grandpa gave Monet a picture of Sadie.

Christmas breakfast.
After laying in the basement for a few hours we all went to Larry and Becky's for the best dinner and some serious Dance Dance game playing, provided by Wyatt and Lindsay.
Christmas eve we went to Macaroni Grill, church for the Christmas eve service, to my parents for dessert and to open pajamas.
Putting out milk, cookies, carrots and cheerios for Santa, the reindeer and the elf's. But Monet ate most of it before she went to bed.
La Dolce Vita Christmas party.

Our annual Lambs Cafe / Ice skating night was so much fun. It was perfectly snowing. It wasn't too cold. Monet was loving it.
Monet really wanted to skate, since she has seen Belle and the Beast ice-skate on the Enchanted Christmas movie. Of course they wouldn't let her on the rink, so I told her this little courtyard, was a rink for kids. She was in her own little heaven. It was adorable.

Merry Christmas!!
