We had a crowd over this Christmas. All of the kids have moved away and it is difficult to get them together from scattered locations, but fortunately our daughter from Portland (1800km) came down with the family as well as our youngest son from San Francisco (1000km). They all drove over through California during those big rainstorms but left here in sunshine.
E came down along with mom and dad. On Christmas Eve she left milk and cookies for Santa and wrote him a welcome note.
It looks like the cookies worked, as there were a lot more presents under the tree the next morning.
Mom made E a new tutu.
She also received lots of toys and things she liked. She danced with a new wand.
And played with some new dolls and doll chairs that Granddad made
She really seemed to like some hats that she got
And she performed a nice dance number several times
All in all, it was a pleasant holiday week.
