Savannah received a gift card to American Girl for Christmas this year. She was so anxious to go to the store, so we went the next day. She loved walking around and looking at each doll and their accessories. The store spans two floors of the mall! So she had plenty to look at. In the end, she found the perfect doll for her.

This year is the first time that the company that I have worked for has invited the entire family for the Christmas party.

We have continued our tradition of distributing the presents for the kids throughout the month of December. Then on Christmas day, there is one gift under the tree that says:
From: Heavenly Father
Inside are pictures of Jesus.
This leads us into a discussion as a family about the true meaning of Christmas.
So in the meantime, the kids love opening one or two presents a week and each of the presents is played with for at least one week.
Notice that Savannah is wearing a coat at the same time Carson is in shorts and a t-shirt.

Shorty after moving to the DC area, we learned that there are actually two Smithsonian Air and Space Museums. One in DC and one in Fairfax, VA.
On Saturday, we went to the Virginia one. It was impressive! They had hands on science displays and many of the most significant planes in US and World history.

A science demonstration about hearing, balance, and air pressure in space.
The Enola Gay, which dropped the Atomic bombs on Japan in WWII.
This X-35B can land vertically.
This SR-71 was amazing. When they delivered it to the Museum, it flew from California to Virginia in just over an hour. They say it had 2.5 miles of film that it would carry (which they would then have to develop afterwards).
This engine is together, then when you press a button, it splits in half and starts to rotate so you can see all of the pieces moving.
