Happy New Year!

We've been celebrating birthdays like crazy here at the Pellerin house.

Jack was 9 on November 22. He asked for (and received!) a Flip video camera because he loves to make little mini movies staring his Pokemon toys. He's such a nut! Here he is with his cake. There was some mix up at Poupart's, because his cake was decorated with flowers. He wasn't very pleased about it, but luckily, it didn't stop him from digging in and enjoying his cake!



Next was Caroline on December 11. This girl is fifteen years old! What is up with that? She was just born! Well, it feels that way to me. We celebrated her birthday at my grandmother's house in St. Martinville. Here she is with her favorite lemon daubage cake. Can you tell that she didn't want me to take her picture?



The last birthday of the year was Anna's, on December 21st. This sweet girl is now 12 years old. Crazy, I tell ya! Anna and I are both Hello Kitty enthusiasts, so her cake was an easy choice. Her birthday always seems to get wrapped in together with Christmas, which bothers me more than it bothers her, I think. She loves being a Christmas baby!



I spent some time in November and December making ornaments for our Christmas tree. Here are a few.

This is the picture from our Christmas card in 2004. Caroline was 7, Anna was 4, and Jack was 1. My babies!



I love this picture of Matthew from our time at the beach last summer. It was just begging to be displayed!



Here is Caroline holding baby Jack in 2003. How sweet is this?!



We spent a wonderful Christmas morning at home together. It was our first one in the new house.

Here's Matthew with his new Angry Birds game. This kid loves, loves, loves Angry Birds!



Jack got, among other things, lots of Pokemon "stuff". Little rubber Pokemon creatures, books describing all the different Pokemon, these plush Pokemon critters . . . the boy is obsessed!



Anna got a much-anticipated laptop. No more having to share mom's computer with the boys!



Here is a shot of Caroline with a gift from Sephora, which I think must be her favorite store. Seems like we are always in there! Her "big" gift was a Vitamix blender. She is a vegetarian, you see, so I thought that a Vitamix would be a great gift. I envisioned her starting each day with a smoothie made just the way she likes, maybe some fresh, homemade hummus . . . let's just say that my bright idea did not translate. She was, and remains, unimpressed. There's always next year, right?



That's it from here. Thanks for stopping by, and best wishes for the new year!
