I love this picture with BOTH of my kids sitting on Santa's lap. Last year John Curtis wouldn't go anywhere near Santa. This year he decided that since he was 4 he wouldn't be scared.
Last night the kids at church went Christmas caroling at two of the nursing homes in town. Sophie was brave and went around and told the residents Merry Christmas afterward. It reminded me of living in Marlin. We would visit the nursing home a lot and Sophie would toddle right over to the wheelchairs and climb up in their laps.
Did I mention we've had a relaxing week? That often means not fixing hair in our house. When G-Momma was here last weekend she gave Sophie some American Girl crafts. One was to make matching bears for you and your doll. Sophie worked hard to get Sally's done and even wrapped it up and put it under the tree for her. She did most of it herself. She's got sewing genes on both sides and she really seems to enjoy it.
Another craft was a scrapbook to do of you and your doll. She started this one this morning.
I love her invented spelling (this was on the way to NYC)
May your Christmas be full of peace and love!
