Okay, this SHOULD qualify as the next installment of Orphaned Pictures of the Week, but since it’s been several weeks since I’ve done one, it’s more like Orphaned Pictures of the Month. So I’ll just call it a photo dump.
Ali and I have been doing a lot of cooking lately. Chris caught a photo of us making Brownies for Small Group:
A few more trampoline pics from Radford’s stay with us. I don’t know why I’m so obsessed with taking trampoline pics, but its true…
.maybe it was those adorable cheeks…
Chris got super-duper LED lights on sale last year – they really do make a difference!
After we got the lights on, Ali pulled her chair over to bask in the splendiferous glow:
Then we began the ornament placement.
As tradition states, Amanda came and helped us…
Chris bought Ali a small tree for her room last year – she really enjoyed decorating it.
Ali has, of course, loved all of our Christmas decorations – especially the Ferris Wheel:
She and I have spent some time making homemade ornaments for her little Christmas tree. I pulled out my huge box of beads from when I was into that in high school, and we started out by making a Christmas tree:
Then I taught her how to string beads:
It was a long, flexible needle, but she noticed partway through - “I keep getting poked!!”, so I showed her how to hold her fingers OUT to avoid needle-hand contact.
And finally, her two ornaments hanging on her tree:
Christmas rocks with a toddler around to make it magical.
