It’s been a little busy around here lately. Throw in preparation for a holiday trip to China, and, well, things are falling through the cracks. I did finish our Christmas postcards, so those are being printed and will start hitting post offices around the U.S. in the next week or so.
Oh, and last night we got one Very Important thing done. Since we’re traveling over Christmas day, the girls wrote letters to Santa asking him to visit our house early, specifically on the 21st.
The elf-on-the-shelf was entrusted with winging the missives to the North Pole last night, and Ro and Ree were thrilled this morning to see that he did his job.
Whew. Guess that’s one thing off the list. Now on to numbers 2 through 5000...
PS: The girls drew pandas on their letters because they get to meet and hold baby pandas while in China and can barely contain themselves. We found a news story last night that seven baby pandas were born in Chengdu last month at the giant panda preserve we’ll be visiting (including one baby that they named Oreo), and I thought Ro and Ree were going to pop.
