Santa and Mrs. Claus stopped by our house today to pick up gifts we'd purchased for an angel we adopted. Sarah would not get up into the sleigh to say hello. Maybe next year. :)
J can make some pretty great balloon sculptures - a backpack can also double as an angel's halo.

If you give a mom a muffin, she'll want a cup of coffee to go with it. She'll pour herself some. Her three-year-old will spill the coffee. She'll wipe it up. Wiping the floor, she will find dirty socks. She'll remember she has to do laundry. When she puts the laundry in the washer, she'll trip over boots and bump into the freezer. Bumping into the freezer will remind her she has to plan supper. She will get out a pound of hamburger. She'll look for her cookbook. (101 Things To Make With A Pound Of Hamburger.) The cookbook is sitting under a pile of mail. She will see the phone bill, which is due tomorrow. She will look for her checkbook. The checkbook is in her purse that is being dumped out by her two-year-old. She'll smell something funny. She'll change the two-year-old. While she is changing the two-year-old the phone will ring. Her five-year-old will answer and hang up. She'll remember that she wants to phone a friend to come for coffee. Thinking of coffee will remind her that she was going to have a cup. She will pour herself some. And chances are, if she has a cup of coffee, her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.

WE spent fall break in the mountains with friends. The scenery was beautiful and we had a perfect getaway. Baby squirrels fell between the walls of our room in the cabin. The maintenance man had to make a hole with a hammer to get them out. The boys thought they were cute and soft.
