Luckily there was minor damage and no children were near. In fact we were chatting in our kitchen with good friends that stopped by to visit. When we heard the crash, they immediately thought their son was a part of it. He wasn't. We only lost one or two main ornaments, a few other were basic color ornaments you can buy from Target and 2 more had "perfect breaks" so we were able to repair and place back on the tree, PHEW!
The only bummer is, it happened St. Nicholas Eve so the girls had to put their shoes under our little decorative tree in our family room, they didn't seem to mind, but I didn't get my picture...maybe I'll stage a fake one ;)
For fear of it happening again, we're still unsure of the cause. We have a free weight tied to a string, tied to the tree, to hold it back, I'll keep you posted!
Sally had last Monday off as part of her Thanksgiving break. Miss Queen Procrastinator loved that she was allowed to float through her whole day and was never required to get dressed.
Story time, school and house was played by all. Love catching these moments. "Sal, can you read me a story?"
Speaking of stories, is anyone else a hot mess at the end of this book? It gets me every single time. Not just tears, but like crying crying. This year Sally joined me...she's got my contagious crying gene
This girl...she learned how to pull her pants off and flush toilets. We also decided it was time to transition to one nap. It's been 4 days and so far so good, I'll update next post maybe, I don't want to jinx it
This gave me a little chuckle, thought I'd share
"Hey Mom, LOOK! Jesus made a cross for us in the sky! Take a picture!" -Libby
Sweet Middle Sister waiting to watch Big Sister's Advent program
She has a few practices after school and today was her first one. I got a little pit in my stomach. It was weird to me that she was old enough to go to an after school activity without me needing to be there to bring her there. I didn't like seeing her bus go through the neighborhood and she wasn't bouncing off ready to tell me about her day. Why do they have to grow up so fast?
Happy to report she LOVED it and can't wait to go again, at least only one of us has a hard time with new transitions.
Libby's Watermelon for Ww week
Emma wanted to show you that she has mittens on, she's not quite sure what to do with them. Libby wants to show you her sucker she got from dance class
It's 70 years old and is from a Catholic Church in South Saint Paul that closed and joined with another parish. We just love it!
"Now we can sit on it and pray in our HOUSE whenever we want, how cool is that?!"- Sally
Thank you Mom and George, we can't wait for you to see it!
This was a quick little story and song during the festivities.
Mama knew the first photo didn't work so we quick did a selfie :)
Then we headed in to City Hall to meet Santa!
Emma taking a good look. Sally being cautious for her baby sister. Libby always ready for the camera!
