Some pictures from the last few weeks getting ready for Christmas...
A little shopping at Faneuil Hall the weekend after Thanksgiving:
Went to the local Christmas parade with some good friends. It was a really sweet parade with lots of fun old cars and bands, clydesdales, clowns and not too many advertisements.
the little bag on the left is from Edie to Vera - 2 books right off our shelves :)
little hideout for snacks and UNO:
one of many catalogues they've gone through circling, love the note :)
making Christmas cookies with some of our favorite friends:
our sweet neighbors gave us some electric candles -
a very New Englandy thing to do apparently :)
The girls met Santa for the first time at Ben's Christmas party! It was so cute to watch their little faces. Both were so excited to go to a party and were serious about dressing up. Edie even had me put her hair in a ponytail - something she has never ever asked for.
Vera at her school performance - they sang "Jolly Old St. Nicholas," but Vera insisted it was Jolly Oats St. Nicholas :)
