W: All the new goodies sit under the tree while I play with a 30 year old jewelry box (it was mom's when she was a kiddo) and Jezzy....
Technically, mom made these shirts. But I did the artwork. Mom did make my princess veil, which looks a little more like a nun's habit in this picture than any of us would like.
And the sandwiches, while still the crowd-pleasing pb and j or cheese and cucumber, are in the shapes of butterflies and stars.
And this is all daintily consumed under a canopy... of course.
Then Winona started unpacking a whole box of toys with little hooks that mom kept reminding her to keep away from me.
So far, I'm not seeing the fun.
My sister, however, was SUPER excited--dancing and singing about how much she loves Christmas, making repeated mention of cookies and presents.
W: I'm introducing Jezebel to the finer things in life, like Berenstain Bears literature...
Then we got to pet horses...and take a nature walk. Great day!
J: I'm just over here getting bigger, stronger and more vocal. I've discovered my high vocal range which I thought would come in useful this morning to be sure that mom was awake. Yup. She was. She must like it because she said something about being lucky I was so cute...
