Monday 12/6: Our new favorite Christmas book, The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming: A Christmas Story, is really more of a Hanukkah story, but that's part of the joke. This silly story by Lemony Snicket is about a latke who runs, screaming, from the pan of sizzling oil he's about to get fried up in, and he keeps on screaming because of frustrating conversations he has with a string of lights, a candy cane, and an evergreen tree, all of whom are trying to co-opt him into a Christmas thing.
Tuesday 12/7: All the presents (except the 2-3 I haven't bought yet) all wrapped and waiting in the spot where our tree will go, once we get it. That's tomorrow.
Wednesday 12/8: In the morning, Santa Claus came to Kate's school and gave the kids books (lovingly chosen and wrapped by Santa's mommy- and daddy-elves). That night, we got our tree!
Thursday 12/9: I gave Kate an Elmo ornament to go on our tree. As with everything E-L-M-O (we have to spell it to avoid a riot) Kate loves it and likes to carry it around the house. I doubt it will spend much time on the tree.
Saturday 12/11: My friend Nancy and I took the girls to Nashville's Adventure Science Center. Kate and Becca had tons of fun running around all the exhibits. (Full post about our visit here!)
