Adrienne said to me a little while ago, "If we go somewhere for Christmas I am going to leave Santa a note."
"Why?" I asked, "To tell him where we're going?"
"Yeah," she said. "I will write 'me and my sisters and my brother and my mom are at my aunt's house' so that he knows where to leave our presents."
I let the kids play with scissors and construction paper. I think this is really the first time I have ever let Charlotte and Genevieve use scissors. They were a little clumsy with them. But, Genevieve successfully made herself a paper dog by cutting out shapes and strips and gluing them together. It was pretty darn cute. She even made it a paper leash so she could "walk" it.
