Family Christmas Traditions

At Christmas time in our family we love the new traditions we have started with the grandchildren. One of them being attending the Teddy Bear Tea at the Royal Sonesta in New Orleans. This year Kali, Caroline, Alex and Eli were joined by cousin Kayla and they all enjoyed seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus and a host of other Holiday characters. The children all took photos with Santa and these also happen to be my favorites from the event. Krista and Claire took the children because Dave and I took Alexa and Erica to the Bahamas for a little winter break vacation.

I didn’t get a copy of Kayla’s photo with Santa but I have one that Krista took of her at the tea party that was adorable.

Ice Skating in the Berry!

The Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce sponsored an Cajun Ice Skating rink in downtown New Iberia this past weekend, Krista and Zach took Kali and Ian there to give it a whirl. They really had fun and had plenty of space to try out a few moves on the ice!

Six Months Old!

Caroline was six months old this weekend, she’s getting so big, she cut two teeth in the past couple of weeks and is almost sitting alone and rolling every where when I put her on a big quilt on the floor for tummy time. Here’s a photo Krista shot of her with her Daddy in town this weekend.
