December 3--Polar Express--We traveled to the North Pole today. We picked up Santa and brought him back home with us. He collected the letters kids or their parents had written and just made everyone very happy to see him.
December 4--Holiday Fun--The kids enjoyed decorating gingerbread cookies. I loved that all three seemed to equally enjoy this activity. The newly decked out people will grace our mantel during the holiday season.
December 5--Our New Friends--Some of the finished products from yesterday's "Holiday Fun" activity. Don't they look festive, gracing our mantel?
December 6--Bachelor Pad--...or something like one. Last week we moved all the tubs of clothes and other stored items out of the crawl space behind the boys' room and brought up the train table and some of the crafts from downstairs. I especially love the seating! The kids have enjoyed playing up in this new addition quite a bit. Hooray for making use of all available space in a relatively small house.
December 7--Work Neighborhood--Another rainy Wednesday; I notice them since on Wednesday evenings I teach a night class and trudge through the city blocks, attempting to stay dry. This was taken from my office window and the very urban neighborhood is apparent.
December 8--Fun on Mommy and Daddy's Bed--What is it about Mommy and Daddy's bed that is so appealing to kids? It's almost universal. I can still remember climbing into my parents' bed as a small child on weekend mornings.
December 9--Just So--The Y had their holiday party tonight, which was full of carnival games, a bounce house and crafts. Imp was very particular about the decorating of his cookie; the candies needed to be placed in just the right spots.
