City Sidewalks, Busy Sidewalks...
Yesterday, Addy decided that 5:45 was a good time to wake up. That's just craziness. So we fed her, played for a little bit, then all took a 2 hour nap until almost 9. Then I made lots of monster cookies, yum :) Then after more playtime, we went to downtown St. Charles for their Christmas traditions celebrations. There are lots of dressed up actors playing Christmas characters. There are Santas from all over the world, the Nutcracker musical people, carolers, even Jack Frost! After that, we all came home to warm up, and we finished wrapping most of our Christmas presents.
This is Addy's newest trick. She started it when we visited my friends at work. Everyone was laughing and doing it with her, so she's been doing it ever since. I guess the world looks cooler from the side :)
Today, we went to the Children's service at church. Addy was in a great mood and really enjoyed making everyone around us smile. She also enjoyed watching all the kids sing songs. After church, we delivered a meal to a family from Little Lambs who just had a baby. We brought them all the fixings for tacos, so that they can have a home cooked meal easily. Then we went to buy Josh's manager's Christmas present and had some lunch. We came home, watched a movie, built a successful fire, and relaxed. What a fun last weekend before Christmas!
