We are deep in the midst of Christmas preparations. Miss M and Miss A had a few days off while Mr C was busy taking finals so we are attempting to do all the "girl things" before he joins us. Let's just say Mr C is not into crafts!
Over the weekend, while Miss M was suffering from a cold, Miss A and her brother went out to C's school for "Breakfast with Santa" Of course, Miss A was quick to point out that he was not the "real Santa." Guess that the real one is only at the Train Station. However, she did tell this "fake Santa" that she's still hoping for a Guitar! Might as well cover your bases. C said that even if he wasnt' the real deal, he could pass her request onto the "big guy."
Mr C has been hitting the books pretty hard in preparation for his first cumulative exams ever. He did notice that the house smelt pretty and thought that maybe Cinnamon stimulates the brain cells as he was really absorbing all the Biology and Algebra II facts. I think he was hinting that he wanted to eat some cinnamon rolls. However, I must admit that when there are 20 pans of Cinnamon Rolls sitting on your dinning room table, it is a very pleasant aroma!
We still have big plans for the rest of our Christmas prep week including a trip to the ice skating arena, shopping at the mall for sibling presents, and of course a few late nights watching Christmas movies or sports depending on who has the TV remote.
The only thing missing from our Christmas excitement is a little of the white fluffy stuff. It's my fault since it's been my prayer for a dry run into Chicago after Christmas. Maybe we can dream of a "White" January.
