Still in an effort to write about the present, I will share some highlights from winter break!
December 2010- January 2011!
*School ended with a great play at Ruby’s school, she was the “lovely lady” in an Arthur and Camelot style production!
*Ruby and Miles, although ill, played together splendidly! Miles misses Ruby so much when she is away at school all week. It was awesome to have two weeks to play, read, make stuff and build together! I love my winter break!
*Art and Gift giving; we created lovely prizes for friends, family and ourselves and took time to adorn the house in winter trinkets and bright baubles.
*We had a warm and magical winter solstice, creating family traditions (snowflake paper cuts year 3), hot cocoa, cookies and fireside stories. We awoke to a fairy visit with stuffed stocking and prizes galore from one another! A few days later, we had Christmas morning together and opened the presents from Santa and Grandparents!
*We visited our loved ones; Grandma and Grandpa Raasina stopped through on their way North. We headed down to Bette and Warren’s for a brief, yet fantastic holiday visit. And we left for the coast to celebrate the New Year and hang out with Grandma and Grandpa Arnold!
