Faux Christmas (Crystalmas)

We celebrated Christmas yesterday, three days late. We called it Crystalmas, because she likes to celebrate Christmas right. We read the Christmas story Sunday night and played and sang songs for each other. Then, we woke up (not very early) yesterday to go down and open gifts.

One of our gifts was the opportunity to play with Mabel and make her pose over and over for pictures! She was cute in her cradle with the zebra blanket!

Dad was able to lull her off to sleep in her swaddling blanket. Nothing quite as comforting as holding a sleeping baby!

We fought the traffic to get to the Kennedy Center for the nightly free concert on the Millennium Stage. It turns out the stage is just the end of a big hallway. They had a vaudeville troupe with a Cajun electric cellist performing. I got some new ideas for the band!

Whistling Prairie (along with the rest of the audience) got to perform, as they handed out kazoos to everyone in attendance.

Afterwards we stopped off to see the beautiful National Christmas tree in front of the White House. It was surrounded by trees from every state and territory.

The down side was we didn't get dinner till 10 p.m. We picked up stromboli from Pizza Boli's on the way home.  Mmmm. It was worth the wait!
