This and That

We have had a great week. Monday was a day of straightening up and laundry after a busy weekend. Yesterday we had the pleasure of keeping Sarah Beth while her mom was at work. Her babysitter was sick so we had a playmate all day. They played so well and we had a great time!!!

Tonight Scott and I went with the girls to the youth Christmas party and EllaKate stayed with my mom. When we got there, EllaKate went straight to her Christmas tree and started picking up presents. Momma had already thought ahead with a gift she could open. Inside was a necklace, a nativity scene, and a whistle... all things special back "in the day" but special "now" to EllaKate- another collection of things for her to carry around in a bag :D!!! If that wasn't enough, momma had a little Santa that EK played with while she was there. Can you guess what she said when it was time to go home? "Can I take Santa home with me?" Can you guess what momma said? "Of course you can." So we have a new Christmas decoration- EK loves him!!!

When we got home, Savannah had finished Amelia's and Rosemary's Christmas gifts- lapboards. Were they wrapped and under the tree? No, she couldn't stand it and surprised them tonight. Didn't they turn out darling??? I guess they need them since they are studying for finals...
