Billy Tartle in Say Cheese by Michael Townsend
Boogs and I did not do much this week. We spent a lot of time at home just reading, relaxing, playing games, baking, and decorating for Christmas. We did leave the house to go to a movie, shop, swim team practice, and library. It was pretty cold most of the week. There was actually frost on the ground most mornings. Boogs and the neighborhood kids warmed up by spending hours playing and riding bikes and scooters up and down the street.
Boogs had a friend over to help make a maze for the hamster.
Boogs was a big help with setting up and decorating our Christmas tree.
I always enjoy getting out the ornaments. One of our yearly traditions is for Boogs to pick out a new ornament each year. I use a thin line Sharpie to put his name and the year on each of his new ornaments. When he grows up he will have a small collection of ornaments for his own Christmas tree.

Boogs helped make an apple pie for Thanksgiving dessert.
The lights look so pretty and festive.
We enjoyed our week off and are kind of sad that regular life, school, and work will have to resume on Monday.
