We enjoyed a fun time of decorating at Papaw and Granna's house. Ellie was so excited to see all of Granna's ornaments, and it was fun to hear the stories behind some of them. Josiah was his very busy little self and tried to get into everything, of course! We also enjoyed roasting marshmallows in the fire place and having smores! So glad they waited for us to "help" with the decorations! :)

We had a fun morning decorating cookies and trying to "help" with Mimi's Christmas tree. Later, we found Josiah eating the sprinkles off the table... then both kids joined in. Ellie was very excited about Mimi's "contivity" (nativity) scene. Christmas is such a fun time of the year!
The leaf unit was also so much fun! We enjoyed learning about the letter L, reading about leaves, going on "leaf hunts", pressing leaves, leaf runnings, tracing leaves, making a crushed leaf picture... so many fun things to do with leaves. Of course, Josiah was close by in the pack-n-play or high chair listening in on things. This week, however, he managed to get out of his pack-n-play. What a sad, sad day!! :) Things will be much more exciting now that I can't put him in there. Ellie loved our leaf unit and we're excited about the next one already.
