Today was ice skating day! But before we met our pals at the rink, we spent a quiet morning at home, including doing some Christmas preparation cooking.

We met up with our homeschooling pals and I believe I counted nearly ten families in our group, so you can imagine how many children there were!
This year, Margaret (4) learned how to skate without the "blue thing."

Joseph (almost 3) took his first turn on the ice!
Bonus picture: Mary was doing her violin practice and took a barefoot stroll throughout the house, like a street performer, causing her baby brother to stare in awe. He loves to listen to her play.
