Sorry for my absence the last few days, getting everything ready for Christmas with a three-week-old baby takes its toll....We had a wonderful holiday and I hope everyone else did as well. We missed out on our girl being the Baby Jesus at church on Wednesday night because I didn't raise my hand quickly enough, darn it, but it was nice to debut her anyway ;). The kids got a lot of books yesterday and my favorite so far is Make Van Gogh's Bed, a book that introduces toddlers to great works of art by Renoir, Monet, Degas and Van Gogh. If you have a bookstore gift certificate burning a hole in your pocket, I definitely recommend it. And it looks like it's part of a series. Another early fave is A Pocket for Corduroy, which we didn't have. We enjoyed that last night with my son adorned in his new Corduroy pajamas.
