Lil' Emmy called her Grammy tonight to tell me about her breakfast with Santa experience yesterday. Oh me oh my....here's what I got out of our conversation..."ummmmmmmmm, Santa, Dora, purple, red, potty, cheesy broccoli soup, Santa, Cinderella, ice, ummmmmmmm." She hit the highlights....Disney on Ice Show, lunch, what color Santa's suit was, and that she was a big girl on the potty! She'll be three on February 7th, so as you can imagine, her thoughts go faster than her words can come out. Oh what fun this time of year is for the short ones, huh?
Jim spent four full days at home, enjoying some much needed, and overdue, R&R. He left today and should be home in time for Christmas Eve and Christmas. The corgi kids were happy to have him around to rub their tummies; nobody does it like their Daddy!
