Here’s a very short clip I took of the ‘gingerbread house’ up the road. I meant to take a picture but I accidentally hit the record button instead.
Yesterday, I bundled Olive up and we ventured out with her stroller to walk to the bus stop to meet Brandon.

It was a chilly day but we enjoyed it.
Rudolph Olive was so happy to see Brandon.
We hurried home for a quick play in the yard before heading inside for dinner.
With our holiday shopping past us we look ahead to the days before Christmas with anticipated children happily finishing their lists for Santa and us wrapping gifts, preparing meals, etc. Tomorrow evening I’m taking Brandon and Olive to get their pictures taken with Santa Claus. Brandon is excited. I’m just going on instinct here but my guess would be that Olive will not want any part of this, especially if its anything like Halloween was. 🙂 and thats okay too. This mama doesn’t mind being needed. Once they get bigger you feel less and less needed as they become so much more independent. The first year we brought Brandon to see Santa he was terrified, so much so that we didn’t go back until he was comfortable going, which was last year.
Can you believe we have no snow yet? December is coming to an end shortly and right at this very moment it is raining. Cloudy with a chance of rain? Weird, but we will take it. I’m almost certain a few weeks from now we will not be lacking snow. I’m really excited about getting outside to build snowmen with the kids, taking them sledding and snow shoeing with their cousins and going ice skating together!
Olive, Brandon and Daddy. I love these three more than anything. They are my everything.

A few photos from today. Olive looks like a little elf that has lost her way from the North Pole 😉
I love these hats.
