Merry Christmas from Santa and Rose (part 7)

(from the Seems like there's more than just Rose and Santa in this picture department)

Hi everyone,

Yes - it's that time of year again.  Here's our family Santa photo:


Once again - Rose was a little shy at first, so Santa volunteered his chair for us.  But - Rose warmed up to Santa pretty quickly - even though she really wasn't sure what to ask him for!  He suggested that she send her wish to him in a letter, and that seemed to be okay with her.

Afterwards, we stopped by Fran's Chocolates for some high-class hot chocolate (yum!) and finished off the evening with a nice dinner at Piatti's.  A good time was had by all!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Pietromonaco family!

Cheers,
Paul

Rose @ Pacific Northwest Ballet's The Nutcracker - Sunday, December 8th, 2013

(from the Endless Twirl department)

Hi everyone,

We attended a performance of the Pacific Northwest Ballet's Nutcracker at McCaw Hall on Sunday, December 8th, 2013.  Rose was pretty as a ballerina.  She insisted on getting a flower headpiece, so I insisted on a photo:

 
Generally, I don't like photos in portait-orientation, but this does capture her full outfit:

 
Then, she twirled away:




A good time was had at the ballet by all!

Cheers,
Paul
