Claire's favorite character at the moment is Stitch from the movie "Lilo and Stitch". She wanted Stitch on her birthday cake so Jen found this.
Claire enjoys coloring and painting.
I haven't really been taking pictures for quite some time now. I've been pulling from Jen's camera phone so a lot of pictures are distorted. Work has been so busy that the last thing I want to do when done with the work day is get back on the computer.
We went to watch Claire's teacher play some music at a coffee shop in Waukesha.
And Chef Claire.
Our niece Summer spent a couple of days with us this weekend. We went xc skiing and went to Helium.

Claire was a very good girl this year.
She specifically asked Santa for a Green Bay Packers pillow this year and Santa delivered.
We got together with my side of the family over the weekend.
Claire loves her cousins.
And learns so much from them.
Jen and I went out for some xc skiing on the Lodi Golf Course.
Getting into the Christmas spirit.

We got hit with enough snow this week to get out cross country skiing. Claire put on her skis for the first time. My parents were in town for Grandparent's day at school.
Claire wasn't the only one that got their cross country ski season started. I have officially started my Birkie training this week since there is now enough snow at Lapham Peak.
Jen took Claire and Violet to Chuck-E-Cheese after school one day this week.
Looks like they had a good time.
Claire won the elf-on-the-shelf contest at the Delafield library and received this Santa as a prize.
Our friends Clarke and Katie are big Alabama football fans so they always ensure that she roots for a winning team. They sent her this BAMA jersey and here's Claire saying "Roll Tide".
Choose your teams wisely folks. Just look at her face. That's pure joy from watching her team win week after week.
On Saturday all the kids got together in downtown Delafield to visit Santa and some of his reindeer.
Claire and I built a house out of blocks and it looks like it was going to tip over at any second.
We also decorated a gingerbread house and we agreed that it turned out better than our block house.
