Lily put quite a few ornaments on the tree. She did really well keeping them on the tree too!
Lily and Drew met with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the neighborhood community center. Lily had been talking for weeks about what she wanted to tell Santa she wanted for Christmas; a princess clock. We didn't know if she would actually talk to Santa though. To our surprise she ran into Mrs. Claus's arms and then took her turn on Santa's lap. She was so excited. What a picturesque scene...we had our first snowfall that morning.
Drew is ready to get shoveling. The boys made some money shoveling the neighbors driveways. Nate and Drew came to the conclusion that shoveling snow is a lot harder work than mowing lawns. Little did they know that 2 weeks after this snow we would have 22 inches fall in 12 hours. At least the boys had a little practice before the BIG snowstorm!
Lily couldn't wait to get out into the snow and make a "snowmam". I think she would have stayed out until bedtime if I would have let her. Snow in her boots...no big deal!
