Merry Christmas

It's been cold here in Chicago, just like in the rest of the country.  So we've been spending most of our days inside, watching shows, listening to Christmas music, baking treats, and reading Christmas stories.  It's really been pretty perfect.
Grayson had his first pickle, and walked around with it in his mouth like this for 5-7 minutes.  I could not stop laughing.
He was pretty pleased.

Nate pulled out his trumpet and helped the kids try it out.

Katie was pretty good--and actually got it to make trumpety sounds.

Grayson was sort of lost as to how to work the mouthpiece.

We decorated a rice crispy train

Played in the snow (briefly)

Decorated the tree

...and made silly faces next to it.

Checked out the windows downtown

Took pictures of the tree using Pinterest Tricks

And Self-timer family pictures in the courtyard.

Even though we're not spending the holidays with family this year, we're all really happy.  Katie is so excited for Christmas, and Nate and I can't wait to watch her and Grayson get up on Christmas morning.  Here's hoping that your holiday season is full of happy!  Merry Christmas from us Murrays.
