Ella told me only brothers & sisters could be in the tent. I couldn't resist getting a quick photo anyway.
Ella has wanted to do a lot for Sammy lately. Here she was trying to snap his shirt but he kept licking her hand. It was pretty cute.
Big sister asked to have Little Brother on her lap and wanted to make sure he could see the snow.
I've always wanted an audience while getting ready in the morning! Ok, maybe not. I need to plan better.
Daddy & his boy after a long day at work.
Sleepy little man.
This was not from the last week. While I was sick, Pete did an incredible job with taking over all of my usual tasks. He even did Ella's hair. What a man. Seriously. What a man.
Thursday we played at Auntie Becky's. The girls love their popsicles!
Sammy was mesmerized by Auntie's tree.
I had two divine outings this week...alone. What better place is there than Target? And during the holiday season!
Outing two was to get my hair done on Thursday. Goodness, it was needed. Many people today have told me they don't remember seeing me with my hair down. New goal: to leave it down more often. Except that means I actually have to take time to do it. Hmm. I'll see what I can do.
We're continuing to make amazing progress on simplifying the house. Another big load will be going to Goodwill tomorrow. Joy! Just one and a half rooms left in the basement and we'll be finished. Then we can decorate for Christmas. I might have to share some photos of the crazy organized rooms soon. Yes, I'm that excited about it.
I will have one more change to post, but now that the weekend is upon us, I think I'll wait until Monday. We're heading down to St Olaf for Christmas Fest tomorrow. Pete sang in the prestigious St Olaf Choir once upon a time, and it just isn't the start of the Christmas season without taking in the annual concert. We always follow the concert at our dear friend Anton's house for dessert and a sleep over. Sammy will be joining us while Ella stays in Duluth with friends. After tomorrow night's concert, Christmas will be in full swing! Yay!
Happy weekend, friends!
