What we've been up to this week...
Staying up way past bedtime
Reading chapter books out loud
Dressing and brushing American girls
Playing Chinese checkers
Catching up on 30 Rock & Downton Abbey with Nate at 3 AM
Sliding in the slushy snow and then drinking hot chocolate
Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (twice so far...)
Eating Christmas leftovers in various creative ways
Planning a special girl's 6th birthday
Coloring in our new coloring books with our new crayons when Nate falls asleep (my favorites are Backyard Nature and Pond Life)
Attempting to catch up on laundry and cleaning
Being excited for Pa (more to come on that...)
Being happy to have my kids home for the whole week and appreciating every minute!
And some bonus pictures...
Checking out Rivka Malka's website and trying out some tichel tying on Pip
Watching Willy Wonka and perfecting a Veruca Salt attitude
