Today we are going to try to do a family activity - Science Museum, maybe, since we are members. And my personal goal is to have 1) very little television 2) lots of fruits and vegetables (wish you saw Rose #2 with her ice cream and Whopper sundae last night) 3) thank you notes done by the end of the day and 4) a minimum of yelling. On my part, that is.
Tomorrow, the Christmas tree comes down. It seems like we only had it up for such a short time. This year the Roses got to the glass bulbs before I could put them mostly on the top of the tree, so they were all threaded precariously on the bottom branches. We lost quite a few of those bulbs this year, of course. I feel like I was always running into the tree room with a broom and dustpan.
