Merry Christmas from the Rydes!

Although we did holiday cards this year, we didn't do our typical cheesy letter with photos. Here we are, getting into the spirit a little early this year...

Liam and the Blue Princess

For weeks, Liam has been telling us he's dressing up as a "blue princess" at school. All became painfully clear when I attended the school holiday party Tuesday - he was a shepherd in the school nativity scene! He revised his party line -- and proclaimed he was a "sheffer". It was a wonderful morning -- I probably had a better time than most of the children, however, as evidenced by the photos. I don't know how they managed to get 20 3 year olds to sit still (and be quiet) and frown for 30 minutes....

Trou d'eau douce

We spent a fantastic weekend on the east coast with Tim, Mel, and Sarah. Very relaxing and a great bungalow - Les Cilaos. Saturday, we took a boat across to Ile aux Cerfs to swim and relax. Mel and Tim parasailed -- Steve's back was bad and I was a chicken but they had a fabulous time. Liam enjoyed himself in the shallow water. Overall, a top weekend!
