I am almost caught up on my album now! HOORAY! I am still not happy with my photos of the completed album pages. I just love the convenience of the pockets, but the glare from the page protectors is annoying! They look better IRL.
On December 5th, we actually had a night of NO ACTIVITIES! It is a rarity, so I made one of the boys' favorite meals. Bill and I had some of our favorite "cheap" merlot and we all cuddled up and watched "Elf".
I have continued the tradition of celebrating St. Nicholas Day with my boys. It makes me smile, because they are way more impressed with the huge, juicy apples and oranges St. Nick brings, rather than the candy and the gift! When Will was little he used to go on and on about how St. Nicholas found the biggest, best pieces of fruit. Every year, it is a challenge to find the best produce to put in their stockings. This year, Bill found the biggest oranges I have ever seen. The boys were super impressed with them.
