Oh, let's see.
Today we went to Central Park.
And then to the National Museum of Natural History.
Maddie brought up some surveyor's tape from downstairs, and said, "Look! I got this to make ribbon sticks!" And she did.
For her brother.
For her friends.
And there were celebration ribbon dances (for both of them).
And there were duels with carrot swords.
There was a trip to the Lemonhead Factory to see how lemonheads are made.
Maybe not a big deal to you.... but we love Lemonheads. :)
(There's a huge list of places to take a virtual fieldtrip over at OLM.com. Check it out! You might find something you like.)
Trevelyn dug the little trees out of the garage to put up in the den.
And then we started on our Woodland Elves. : ). A project that Maddie and I enjoyed very well-ly.
After dinner (our with-all-the-trimmin's dinner, as we were Out for Thanksgiving)
we bundled into our mittens and scarves and boots and went to get our Tree.
Which meant singin' Christmas songs at the top of our lungs in the car, frosty noses, shouting "And more ChrismasLights!" every three seconds, standing at the fire for a few seconds to get warm, lots of "How 'bout this one?" 's, and the very favorite - helping Dad to tie it on top of the truck for the short ride home.
Home again home again jiggety jig
For some hot cocoa and movies.
And all is right with the world.
