Decorating for Christmas

I'm not doing much. Since I left the Christmas tree in the game room up all year, we decided that the game room tree would be our official Christmas tree. I only decorated 3 other things, this mirror, the mantel, and the kitchen bay window. Before I hung this "JOY" piece, I washed the mirror, where there had been a perfect small handprint from Amya's visit. Taylor noticed right away that Amya's handprint was gone and she was sad.

We haven't set Kevin's village up for several years (since he took down our rail that overlooked the kitchen from upstairs. This year, I set up the village in the bay window behind the kitchen sink.

Oh, I guess that Kevin also hung some lights up outside.

Washington DC

I just got back from Washington DC and the NAEYC Conference! Below, you will find one of my new favorite quotes.
I had to visit Julia Child's kitchen in the Smithsonian, for Taylor.

The Smithsonian Castle

The Washington Monument

I think that this one might be the Korean War Memorial, but I can't remember!

From inside the Lincoln Memorial. I went with Margaret, Jackie, and Stephanie.

The Girls in Muskegon

Last night, the girls provided hours of entertainment to various residents of Muskegon. I've always wanted to see them really play together, and they finally did! More fun pictures to come!
