We went to our local Christmas tree festival this weekend, and my boy made a beeline for the super hero trees. Plopped himself down with this superman guy and said, "Mom! Picture!" Yeah, okay cute boy. Cheesey smile and all.
Also, this weekend was St. Nicholas day. We called it Sinterklaas day, because of my love for all things Dutch, but it's essentially the same thing. My girl was super excited about it and got shoes out for everyone.
She chopped the pears, poured the glass of milk, and loaded up the shoes with apples (for Sinterklaas's horses). I failed to grab photos of them the next morning (something to do with me staying up really late and them waking up at some ungodly early hour), but St. Nick brought them some new seasonal story books that I'll be sure and include here soon. It was really fun and we'll definitely repeat this festival again next year!
And.... it snowed! A whole lot. It is so beautiful and I'm anticipating the moment when boatloads of snow will start dumping down again. The more snow, the merrier in my winter book.
I've been knitting like crazy the last few days. I'll share a bit of what I've been making really soon.
