Ha ha ha… I thought all our holiday activity would be over after Hanukkah, but somehow the December festivities just kept going this year. Our neighbor had an open house on Christmas Eve where my husband and I had a ‘mistletoe photo opp’, and then friends in Astoria had a little Secret Santa gift swap for the kids.  Shortly after this, another neighbor asked my husband to pose as Santa at midnight Christmas eve (although he’s not certain the kids involved were convinced, he had a good time trying)! We joke that this was one (of a few) holiday mitzvahs that we did this year.
The weather was so unseasonably warm that crocuses and tulips are cropping up around the neighbors’  lawn holiday decorations.
It’s been a unique December, that’s for sure!

I guess we know a lot of cute folks whose birthdays are happening this month … just some more gratuitous pix of birthday fun. I love this ‘photo booth wall’ and may have to copy this idea for E’s bday in August:
