Bet you're jealous you don't have one of these in your kitchen!



Calvin and his friend Gracie decided to snuggle by the Christmas tree yesterday at Lucy's piano lesson. They can be so cute sometimes!

Christmas Tree Book Report

Miss Lucy has worked all week on her book report--a little bit each night. She chose Susan Cooper's "The Dark is Rising" (even though she was worried because none of her friends had heard of it) and planned a special tree with ornaments based off of the signs the hero of the story searches for. She's pretty proud of the final result!



I'm busy getting ready to host the preschool Christmas party--looks like I have a busy little elf following after me and helping in his own way :)


That mom

Yesterday, I was that mom who signed her kid out of school early to go to the fancy movie theater at the mall and see the decorations. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.


My girl

The light was gorgeous this morning, and Lu looked so cute in her outfit with her side ponytail, that we simply had to take five minutes and do a mini "fashion shoot."
