Happy New Year!

Olive here. My sis and I hope you have had a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year!

Overall, we had a nice, quiet holiday. It was sad not having dad here to celebrate

with us but we tried to keep some of his favorite traditions alive, like singing "Rudolph Got Runover By a Reindeer" in loud, funny voices. It makes us laugh each time. On Christmas Eve, we sat around with eggnog and gingerbread men, which is another tradition. I love dipping the gingerbread men into my eggnog.

We got some nice presents on Christmas. We each got a couple new books, some new movies, etc.

We didn't really do much for New Years Eve, besides watch movies and eat Chinese food-yum!

School vacations seem to go by way too fast, don't you think? We're already hard work reading new books to write reports on. And we have a project where we have to rewrite a nursery rhyme with bigger words (our teacher calls them quarter words). It's not as easy as it sounds. I'm doing "Baa Baa Black Sheep" and I can't think of anything for it. :/ At least it'll have a pretty border of sheep.

How were your holidays? What are some of your favorite traditions?


Here are some photos of us in our holiday outfits:


  1. Hi Aimee and Olive,

    Quiet Christmases can be nice! Technically, my Christmas was also quiet - Christmas Day, that is. We actually celebrate the holiday more on Christmas Eve. This year, my family went all out - I flew back to Paris for the first time in years to be with my parents, Juliette, and both sets of my grandparents! Juliette and I had fun window shopping in Paris with our grandparents, attending a mass service at the Sacré-Coeur, enjoying a huge Christmas Eve meal, and opening presents. I think my favorite part was celebrating the Polish Christmas Eve traditions with my Polish grandmother. I actually love Polish food more than I love French food, I must admit.

    You two look pretty in your Christmas dresses! I especially love Olive's; that's one I was really drawn to when I visited the AG stores.
