A quick trip on the rollerblades with the girls was moms request.
 Ashton made it very clear that she was not happy about the idea and that she thought it wasn't any fun.  It didn't get better until mom got her planning her birthday party and then all of a sudden things were ok again.

Family Bike Ride

 One of the benefits of living in NorCal is the opportunity to ride bikes over the holiday break.
 Jacqueline was quick to point out that she needed a bike with gears for this trip as there were some hills.
 Ashton was not thrilled to be riding this day so we had to hug it out a bit.

Girl Scout Nutcracker

 The girl scouts had the opportunity to see a bit of the backstage of the Nutcracker.  One of the options was the chance to try on the costumes that were retired.  Even Ashton couldn't resist the draw of the beautiful costumes.
 Jacqueline of course, went straight to the line for this opportunity.
 and tried on several.
apparently they were fighting over the phone as they waited for the show.
this wasn't even the full group who attended, it was a lot of fun for the girls to see the show with all their friends and while we were inside the rain stopped to let us get this photo after.
