Given the choice, I will choose the sand every time! Luckily, we get to spend part of our Christmas break here:

We open our Christmas presents on Christmas Eve morning, spend Christmas Eve with Kyle's family, and then visit the Brennan/Marino clan on Christmas Day. This year Christmas ended up being about three things that define Grace in 2013 - music, art, and dolls.

When you live on a hill there is no need to go somewhere for sledding. But you do need a helper (in this case Daddy!) to stand at the bottom so no one goes into the lake!

For the last few years, Kyle's soccer team has been volunteering for an organization called "Elves and More". This non-profit group builds bicycles of all shapes and sizes and then on a weekend before Christmas, they drive a truck to an underprivileged neighborhood to donate them to children in need. When you read their website, you find out that a lot of research goes into choosing the neighborhood who will receive the donations, like there needs to be a YMCA or community center that children can ride their new bikes to for classes, outreach, and adult support. This year, Kyle and I thought Grace was old enough to go so we made this a family outing to volunteer our time.
