Kristen had a workshop yesterday and Chris had class so we did a double shift. While these occasional longer days are tiring, we have such fun that the time passes fast. We picked the kids up after school and headed home to our house. The boys had been requesting a visit to Nana Papa's house so everyone was happy. The boys and I took a nice long nature walk picking up twigs, seeds, leaves and acorns to show Papa. Then we turned on all the lights and oohed and aahed. We did practice looking with our eyes and not our hands in front of the big tree (no decorations yet and we still use the fence when the Grands come over).
One of Santa's naughty elves had taken all the ornaments off their tree so the 3 of the kids spent a bit of time redecorating the tree that Papa got for just them.
Here are just a few pics. The three of them kept us pretty busy especially now that Leighton has taken off walking which is more like a run. I'm thinking she might be a red head ...look at that coloring. Top two teeth are working their way through and she is still smiling through it all.
Hope your holidays are going happily so far and continue to do so.
