There is a tradition in Clive where the fire department drives Santa around a couple of weeks before Christmas to visit all of the neighborhood kids. This morning was the big day and the kids were excited for the visit.
The Reagens came over after school today to hang out. They did a lot of things, this domino run just being one of them. These kids just can’t get enough of each other!
Lucia and Rose have Chicken Pox! They were exposed a couple of weeks ago, and we noticed the first pox on Monday night. Tuesday was OK, but things have gone downhill since then. Lucia has a ton, and quite a few on her face. Rose has about half as many as Lucia, but also some in some uncomfortable places. They are doing better now and we hope to see some improvement over the weekend.
Sometimes the kids like making long domino things.
On our way back from Kansas City we stopped to pick out our Christmas tree at the Costco Christmas tree farm. This has sort of become a tradition as soon as we are back from Thanksgiving and we drive right by Costco on our way home from Kansas City, so it works well.
Lucia & Rose had a photo session today with photographer Mari.
I don’t usually make posts about our furniture, but we got this really cool table from West End Architectural Salvage. It is 10 feet long and 4 feet wide. Susan pointed out that since living in the RV with tiny furniture we are going big!
