Elise yet again was our gracious host for this year's Christmas and New Year's. We had a great time with Grandma and Grandpa, Eric and his family, and Elise and her family. We ate a lot of good food, watched movies, and played lots of board games (our favorites were Harry Potter Clue, Cranium Cadoo, and Blockus.) Cora and I got a little sick for part of the time, and Cora broke a bunch of new teeth (molars, no less,) but she was a trooper and pretty good throughout, all things considered. She loves all of her cousins and it was so fun to watch her playing with all of them. She especially loved baby Noelani; every time she saw her she would laugh.
Stinky faces in the kitchen.

I think she's doing her "How strong is Cora" response here.All the kids in their BYU sweatshirts from Grandma and GrandpaThe whole gang, on January 3rd. Noelani was blessed that day in church and so she's wearing the beautiful blessing dress Grandma Madelyn painstakingly handmade for her.
