More presents wrapped. I think that takes care of that category. A roll of wrapping paper will actually survive for next year's use.
When Bryce Eleanor arrived yesterday morning, she came bearing a gift. She didn't seem certain about who it was for, and Chris explained that there weren't any presents under their tree. They have a train under their tree and gifts will all be in Colorado; Bryce Eleanor wanted a gift, so Chris told Amelia to just "wrap something."
This turned out to be a great idea as B.E. was totally happy with the "gift." After Chris left, she wanted to open it, so she happily ripped the paper from the box. Amelia had wrapped a box of blueberry muffins...and B.E. and I had breakfast!
Later, she wanted some crackers for her snack and got herself all comfortable to watch Thomas and Friends.
There was plenty of cavorting yesterday. Pretending to be a cat, playing tag and follow the leader, working puzzles, gathering holly berries, cleaning leaves out of the pond, making a tent, and generally keeping busy.
And a little greenery and some appreciation of nature, around the house. Especially birds.
Outside, we discovered 3 bird nests, two in the arbor and one in a tall shrub.
She will be back shortly for another day of play. Maybe we will make some banana bread.
