Happy 2013 to everyone. We had a good Christmas break - we took trips to IKEA, the NC Natural Sciences museum and playing with friends. Louise's favourite parts of the museum trip: the dinosaurs and the opportunity to use a micropipette. Charlotte & Claire loved the escalator.
We enjoyed having time together. There were moments of sibling togetherness - Charlotte & Claire (at their request) shared a bedroom for 4 days (until Claire's mess started bugging Charlotte). There were also other moments - "I don't want three year-olds at my five year-old meeting!" But it was hard to go back to work and school after the family time together.
