Heading off to school. Every day Lucy insists on taking a backpack with her in the morning just like the big girls. Inside the backpack is a lunch box. She follows me around the kitchen in the morning filling it up with every snack food item imaginable.
The Christmas cards arrived.
The Santa letters have been written. This is Ella's. All Claire wants for Christmas is rosin (for her violin), a "fairy book" (even though she can't read them, she is obsessed with these somewhat insufferable Rainbow Magic books), and a charm bracelet, so Santa is going to have to be a bit creative.
On Saturday, we went with the Shontzes on our 2nd annual Christmas tree hunt.
It was absolutely freezing outside (a bit different than last year), and I couldn't feel my toes by the end, but we found our tree! Never mind that we managed to kill it within two weeks of getting it home by forgetting to water it, but I suppose that's a story for another blog post.
Ella helps carry the tree to the car.
