Christmas Mischief

Emilia discovered the box of ribbon.

Christmas Caroling

Sunday was our church caroling party. I had volunteered to bring cookies, so I baked some sugar cookies and Ella, Ava, and Addison decorated them (with some help from Alex).

The cookies were loaded with frosting!

Dena always dresses up in a festive outfit for caroling.
The weather was perfect--chilly enough to feel seasonal, but not too cold.

Emilia got passed around quite a bit.
The girls ran up to the front at each house we went to. They didn't want to miss any of the action.

Church Christmas Program

(Pictures: Kelvin Heitmann)

Sunday night was our church Christmas program. I will post more pictures later (at least that's the plan). These are a couple of pictures Pastor Kelvin took of Ella. She made her piano debut at the program, playing "Good King Wenceslas" from the book of Christmas songs I played out of when I was her age (complete with my name in block letters on the front and stickers on the pages I had mastered). Ella practiced very hard and played her song very smoothly.

Meanwhile Emilia climbed all over Nicole and me and yelled things like "the baby is crying" (about a baby who was clearly NOT crying). I managed to keep her quiet part of the time with Smarties and suckers, but eventually I had to take her out. The joy of two year olds.

Dear, tooth fairy

If it would be posible...I would like to keep my tooth. But leave the money, because I diserve it. I got it poled and so I think you should eather leave the money and leave the tooth or don't do anything. But if you would like you can take the tooth and next time I loose a tooth take it and give me back my other tooth.

Little Baby Pack Rat

Whenever Emilia leaves the house, she carries a backpack...and a purse...sometimes two. She stuffs her bags and pockets and diapers full of loose change, dollar bills, and keys, whatever she can get her hands on. She carries an old cell phone everywhere. She wears one coat and carries another. She goes to bed with two blankets, a book, a doll, and a toy every night.

Like mother, like daughter, I suppose.
