After lunch, the kids get a free break to do whatever it is they want (you know, kinda like the rest of the day). Today, they watched "Shawn the Sheep". While I certainly don’t understand it, the three of them had a blast watching.
I, in turn, had a blast watching them.
Okay, here it comes…
… for pulling decorations off the tree.
🙂 He stood near it for almost an hour pointing and saying "up" then proceeded to one by one eliminate ornaments.
After date night tonight the kids are having a sleepover at my parents house. Marcus came home with us, but Molly and Thomas are more than happy to stay there for the evening…
Well, she was happy after about a half dozen hugs and kisses from Thom and I.
Goodnight sweet princess.
It’s as good of a date as any to start the advent calendar that I bought the wool felt for last year to make an advent calendar. 😉
Molly seems to think so too.
Today the kids and I made some dragon tails (with a little texting guidance of my friend Elizabeth who came up with such a cute pattern), then I made up a story about them as they acted it out.
As it is letter V day, we dubbed the story “The Very Very Dinosaurs”.
The Very Very Dinosaurs
A long time ago, in a faraway land there lived two dinosaurs. One day while the two very very happy dinosaurs were playing, they realized that they were VERY VERY hungry.
So they set off into the forest in search of food. They looked high in the trees for apples, and low in the bushes for berries.
After searching high and low, they couldn’t find any and were very very sad.
Defeated, they went home to their mommy (the spider, Thomas’ idea, ha!) and told them of their hardships. She told them to not be sad, but to look in their very very large refrigerator. When they opened it, it was filled to the brim with so very very much food that the brother and sister dinosaurs were so very very surprised!
They were overcome with excitement as they danced around the room very very happily.
Remembering that they were so very very hungry, they ate and ate and ate until they were very very full.
Just then, they felt very very sleepy, laid down, and fell asleep for a very very long time.
Good Night Very Very Dinosaurs. Hope you have very very sweet dreams!
