It seems like we've been having a lot of fun lately (wouldn't Cannon agree :) Probably you are too. It's Christmas!!
We had our ward Christmas party at the church. I didn't take pictures but you can imagine Kate and Brynn dressed up as angels and dancing on the stage for baby Jesus, Adrie crawling across the stage on all fours wagging the lamb ears on her head, Brandon singing "O Come All Ye Faithful" in a male a-Capella quartet, me playing some Christmas tunes with my string quartet.
Not all that was going on simultaneously of course. Imagine Cannon, again not having fun with all the hullabaloo.
This weekend we went to the Light Parade on Main Street and had hot chocolate and donuts with Santa after. *Note to self: never drink hot chocolate before bed even if it is super-diluted. I was up all night with a cocoa buzz.
Tonight is our local production of the Messiah and I get to play in the orchestra.
I imagine I'll come crashing down off my cocoa high about that time.
Brandon and I saw Narnia 3 and later this week we'll go the the Forgotten Carols concert.
The girls have watched Elf, Christmas Carol, made gingerbread houses and written their letters to Santa...
- Adria wants a new bed (our kindergartner is still in a toddler bed?) with an Eeyore fuzzy blanket. (Do you think Eeyore is a good role model?)
- Brynn would like her very own bike that was never ridden by a big sister. It would be a mountain bike that's hot pink. Also it would have tires that never go flat.
- Kate would like a cell phone and lots of cash.
Yeah-- how did we go an American Girl doll last year to that?!
And, what does Santa do for the kid who wants to grow up too fast?
