You can probably guess what this is!
We took Namine to the store and got her a new Christmas outfit. You could say she was excited. We took a bunch of pictures of the little diva in front of the lit Christmas tree. Here they are.
We’ve been so busy lately, that we hadn’t had time to put up the tree or do anything more than decorate our window. But with yesterday’s snowfall, it seemed the perfect thing to do – not just because we were more or less snowed in, but also because it seemed like the ideal Christmassy day. Turn on some Christmas music and get to decorating. It was fantastic.
On Saturday we took Namine to a movie. It was a showing of Free Birds, put on by the Variety children’s charity group for disabled kids. After the movie, they provided pizza and presents. Namine picked out a couple books and got a poster and a Katy Perry hoodie.
So we were watching The Sound of Music tonight. During the beginning of the movie, when they showed the nuns, Namine said this gem: What are those women mad about?
In lieu of putting up other decorations, like the tree (which we have not have time for, unfortunately), we settled for a simpler solution in case we didn’t get around to the bigger stuff. And it’s one that Namine could help with: painting the window with a tree and nativity scene, then decorating it with lights and homemade ornaments. Out of everything we did, Namine really got into making her own ornaments.
One of childhood’s great joys is building a couch fort. We might no longer have the couch, but we still have the cushions. So yesterday, Jessica helped Namine build a cushion fort.
