On Monday it was really, really cold here. Ben had on his one-piece flannel jammies. The kind with the feet attached. He was really, really warm. And I really, really didn't want to change him in to school clothes. So, I didn't. He got to do what I dream about doing - he wore PJs all day! I think his teacher was a little miffed. But, I get to be the big boss, and I decided he would wear those cute jammies all day. I loved picking him up in the evening, still in his flannel PJs. It is a treat that only babies can get away with!
Could it be the Elf on the Shelf, or maybe she wants to be on Santa's good list....whatever the cause, Lily is a doll baby! Tonight at bedtime she told me that I did not have to give out kisses - it was her turn to kiss me goodnight. I was spoiled with no less than 20 kisses! Lucky me! But we all know that I will sneak in her room later tonight and repay the favor!
The winter solstice seems to have missed our house. But busy as we are there is no doubt it is Christmas. Our little traditions are taking shape. Maybe some will last forever while others change with time. For this season, we love listening to holiday music and watching classic Christmas movies. We've visited santa and baked cookies. The kids are making decorations at school and Lily performed at the hospital's holiday party. We are spending time with friends and sneaking away for a date night here and there. With cold weather moving in, we are wearing sweaters and indulging with hot chocolate and apple cider. Presents are wrapped, unwrapped and some not even purchased yet. Busy aside, this really is the most wonderful time of the year!
