The last few weekends have been so busy! I still don't have my tree up...do you? Things sure make the holidays look different with a little one in the picture. I seem to be seeing things through a child's eyes! I'm not sure what Little Miss A thought about visiting ICE! this year, I think her hat covered her eyes most of the walk through the exhibit, but she didn't cry or complain much. It was a chilly 9 degrees in there...brrrrr. Still it was a fun day with the kids. Little Miss A picked out her own souvenir and has been mesmerized ever since! We have made this a holiday tradition, even though it was cancelled a few years in a row because of Covid.
We attended a Christmas reception given at our DIL workplace. I'm not sure what I was expecting but it far exceeded my thoughts! There was a lovely Santa with a nice backdrop for pictures, face painting, balloon animals, Buzz Lightyear and Encanto, and a meal that was sooooo good with salmon, crab cakes, chicken dishes, beef dishes, fruit and veggies and deserts to die for. Not sure what one of them was, but it seemed to be cheesecake dipped in dark chocolate. I need to know where they got those delicacies. These pictures of little Miss A with the wonder (and sometimes fear) in her eyes just make those memories unforgettable. (Why are some kids so afraid of Santa? She loved Buzz who was several times her size...but sweet Santa was the boogie man! LOL) Her whole body language screamed... SAVE ME!
Our adventures sure make the days leading up to Christmas so exciting! I hope you are experiencing the joy of the season as well....and you are Happily Stitching!
