A beautiful day for a walk
I'm working on some Christmas presents and wrapping, trying to work down some of my list of "to dos". We went to the reindeer festival today too, which was fun- now we are all sugared up. We got to see real reindeer, make crafts, get lots of sugary treats, including an ice cream sandwich and hot chocolate. Ivan's favorite part was the reindeer race- they put on antlers and a red nose and raced down the hall, then got candy canes- he did that about a half dozen times until I pulled him away. Dominique liked the races too and went to the most craft tables of all of them. Emora is saying the liked the races too. She also enjoyed petting the reindeer. I'll post some pics some day!
When we first moved here, I didn't think there was much going on, but so far this weekend, we've taken in 2 events and missed 3 others, because we are a slow paced kinda family. Poor Emora has been a bit grouchy each night by supper time and I think she's a bit short on sleep. Wouldn't you know she slept until nearly 10am this morning! I hope there is lots of sleeping in over the holidays!
