Two weeks ago it rained several days and then I got super sick. Fever, chills, the works. It was awful. I completely lost track of what activities we were doing when and did a lot of Christmas movies and hot chocolate.
Once I felt a little better we made peanut blossoms; one of my favorite holiday cookies we made when I was a kid.
We hung stockings by the brick wall with care.
And Isabella wanted to decorate the house "like Christmas", so I let her do her thing and she spent a half hour wrapping this chair. It was the most decorated chair ever. ("Was"...because the ribbon has since been removed, by the kids, and used for other imaginative adventures. Mostly wrapping each other.)
