Hello, there! I hope you are having a happy December. We have been up to so much – trips to the Science Museum, the Harry Potter Party at Barnes and Noble, and a bunch of other things I can’t think of at the moment. Ha!
We’ve been getting quite a lot of rain lately. This is the playground (park) where we go often. It was flooded!
Thankfully, the swings were still dry. Ha!
Our old McDonald’s got a make-over. We kind of missed the old, retro decor. But the new decor is nice, too. 🙂
Paprika and I have been to a bunch of movies. We usually have a Tuesday night date after her violin lesson. We go to the late show and have the theater all to ourselves! We’ve seen Moana twice in a row now. I have a feeling it’s going to be a Moana Christmas for Paprika! LOL
Violet (5) continues to write notes to “Her Handsome” – the 4 year old little boy who lives next door. She wraps him presents and writes him notes…then leaves them on his door step when he’s not home.
Here’s one from last week. It says:
I love you
I always feel this way!
Love, Secret Girl
Violet (5) – I mean “Secret Girl” – taking her gift over to leave on Handsome’s doorstep:
We’ve been going for lots of walks and bike rides together. It’s our thing!
Ginger (7) and I have been waking up to go for walks at dawn when everyone else in the house is asleep. We walk about a mile together and talk about whatever she wants to talk about! She really loves to read books, and is so inquisitive. She always teaches me new things!
I got the Little People Advent Calendar this year – which I’ve always wanted to get (we usually get the Lego one). It’s a hit. Here we are the first night with it:
I haven’t been disciplined about putting Ellie (22 months) down for a nap lately. She has so much energy, and loves to run and play. So, 99% of the time now, she has no nap during the day. But that means at night she gets pretty tired and will just fall asleep in random places (usually the couch)!
So, that’s a little of our news! More soon…
