The weather outside is frightful - temps in the 80's and 90's until today, when we got high winds, pounding surf and 3 drops of rain.
Which is about the polar opposite of what we had during our Thanksgiving week in Colorado.
Santa has been visited -
Travis will be 4 on the 23rd!
and the girls made their holiday trek to Build-a-Bear,
bringing home Clarice (for Leanne) and Princess Dancer (Leia).
Mary and I took a fun wreath class
at the Christmas tree farm owned by one of my favorite former co-workers.
Addy decorated her tree while we were in Colorado,
(did I mention I taught her finger crochet - she's a natural! - and more embroidery stitches while we were there? Proud grandma!)
Yesterday we started a fire,
then got out our boxes
(and more boxes)
so the little girls
could help us
with our tree.
They even stopped bickering for 47 1/2 seconds
so I could get a couple of decent photos.
Now that's what I call Christmas spirit!
