Holidays 2012

Blogging about the holidays in July just seems wrong. But skipping it seems even wronger (don't you love inventing words?).

One of the first orders of business during the holidays was to take family photos for our Christmas card/letter. Unfortunately, this letter was never mailed, or even written, for that matter. However, in case you need a recent photo of the Seaman family (ours or extended) for your fridge, you can print out one of these below:

We started two new traditions this year. One was to build a Lego Christmas village. We got the first collectible set this year, and the kids had lots of fun putting it together. We hope to get a new set every year and build them from scratch (well directions are included). The kids had lots of fun with this. I have no pictures of the completed Lego set, but lots of photos of the goofing off:

The other new tradition was to have a family game night with "Minute-to-Win-It" games. Got the idea on Pinterest. And it was a blast! We were glad that our house renovations were progressing to the point that we could host the entire extended family.

An older tradition is to make sugar cookies with all the cousins, and we did that, too: Another fun thing was that Rebecca got her Poppa to help her make a photo booth, and she made some props to go with it. We look forward to even more fun with it next year, as with all the excitement of the games we forgot to use it much. Here are a few of the funny photos she made with it:
