December bball, trains, hamsters

 December ended Ethan's Jr. Jazz basketball season, I made it to a couple games, somehow we were so busy this fall and we actually forgot a game one week.  Crazy.

 Ethan and Ana had a late night turned into a Christmas Party with friends from school (being in a charter school you end up with friends from all over and so we don't see most of them very often).  It was a lot of fun.  They did try to watch a Christmas movie, but 15 minutes into it the kids were done and just wanted to run around and play.  They even braved the cold and played capture the flag in the back yard for an hour.

Following tradition we made Tingey cookie trains, mmmm.

Morgans science experiment.  Somehow I was talked into letting Morgan do a science experiment involving rodents, well hamsters... yes she bought them and is taking care of them, and yes she got a boy and a girl and a couple days before starting the experiment the mama had 8 baby hamsters.  It changed the experiment a bit and all of our lives.  I believe we are now a zoo.  Even Troy is in love with the little babies, we may never get rid of them all.
