Tonight was a big tree lighting ceremony nearby. They had a great band, a children's choir, the tree lighting complete with fireworks, and a SNOW MACHINE! The girls had a fun time and I enjoyed it too, except for my constant concern that I was going to lose a child amidst the hundreds of spectators!
Sisters as we arrive
You can kind of see the flakes here, they were like little soap suds :)
The girls by the big now-lit Christmas tree!
The cooler weather has come back to Texas, even though we likely won't see real snow! My 34 week doctor appointment went well, only 5 weeks (or less) till we meet Prince Peter! The blanket/thumb-sucking situation is going alright, just some whines and tears at bedtime, naptime, and wakeup. The thumb is still ending up in her mouth, but hopefully as she adjusts to life without the blankies the thumb-sucking will slow down. We might try the dentist's advice of gardening gloves at sleeptime if we need to. And I'm sure there will be some sort of reward program we'll have to start! But at least we've conquered the first step of losing the blankies.
Tomorrow we have a homeschool class where they'll be doing some Christmas crafts and making puppets, and this weekend should be filled with continued preparation for Peter's arrival...getting this house in ship-shape!
Hope you all have a fantastic Friday!
