On the third day of December....

we were in full Christmas spirit!  Our day began with a trip to visit Jolly Ole' St. Nick.   Clearly we're missing someone.  As this picture was being snapped that someone was screaming and crawling up my shoulder in an attempt to get as far away from Santa as possible.   Next year?
After, the big girls and I walked to the Hi Pointe and saw Miracle on 34th Street...the old one in black and white.  We ate popcorn and drank Sprite at 10:30 in the morning, we could get used to that.
In the afternoon we attended the most fabulous piano recital.  Emma's first.  She played a duet with her teacher Miss Sarah and was a delight to watch.
We told Emma we could go out to dinner to celebrate her performance. She asked if instead we could order Jimmy John's and eat it on the living room floor while watching Santa Clause.  Does life get any better?  I think not.

On the fourth day of December....
we got our Christmas tree!  As always we went to Ted Drewes and chose a cute Balsam.  Our best yet.  
Pre Ted Drewes (and custard) we went to Starbucks and Lucy discovered peppermint hot chocolate...she's hooked.

OK, so after an afternoon with the Baum family… I've been listening to happy Christmas music and great jazz all day... it is just contagious!

Emma: Thank you for inviting me to a beautiful concert. You bring me so much joy when I see you play the piano and enjoying yourself.

Thank you Eleanor for giving me a private concert on 50 different pianos - you played wonderfully on all of them but my favorite is will the black one!

Thank you Lucy for ... well just being Lucy
