That Was Nice
We had a full week of family from both sides (though not all of them), just enough great food to have enjoyed the holiday without feeling like stuffed turkeys ourselves, and some down time this weekend to catch our breathe and get some work done. Ruby went with us to see New Moon and slept through most of it like a champ! She woke up with a piercing cry about thirty minutes before the end so I spent the rest of the movie bouncing her on my shoulder in the walkway. We decided Edward looked just as good from down there.
Sebastian and I put up the Christmas tree together again this year and didn't break any of our vintage ornaments! His strategy was to place as many on one branch as possible and then move a few branches over and do it again. It got to be a little crowded about three feet up so I would rearrange them when he would go get another ornament but he would come back to those same spots every time. He kept telling me he was so happy for Christmas time because he could throw snow at Scoop (Bob the Builder) and that the tree looked perfect. I'm so glad he gets as excited about trimming the tree as me and I hope we have many more Christmases with memories of overloaded branches and empty boxes of Shiny Brites stacked around the room.
This afternoon we're going to attempt to paint a wooden train, make stockings from wool suits, and any other fun projects we can tackle in between newborn naps. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are ready for all Christmas, all the time!
