These are the 5 ornaments we sent out today for The Crafty Crow Ornament Swap!
Pretty, aren't they? This is our second year doing this and it is so much fun getting ornaments in the mail from all over the country!
These are the 4 we've received so far:
This one is very regal!
A beautiful wax sun!
And the prettiest wand!
And a royal crown!
There is still one more ornament on the way.
Today was pretty mellow around here. Some math and reading, hershey kiss eating, visits with friends and martial arts class. Tonight we will light some candles on this fourth night of Hanukkah and snuggle up for some holiday stories.
Goose and Binky spent the afternoon with Grandma at the symphony to hear "Peter and the Wolf." The narrator was Linda Ronstadt! Of course they have no idea who she is. Binky didn't love it. But he sat through it, at least!
We have been really enjoying the season. Today we decorated the tree and the house. And we still have cookies to bake! Goose is going to see "The Velveteen Rabbit" this weekend. This is a great production for young children. It is still one of Binky's favorite stories.
Goose and Binky tested last night for their first blue stripe!
They were a little nervous and very excited!
Here's Binky in the air doing a round house jump kick!
Goose doing a perfect pinan 1.
Sensei Terri said all their hard work really showed in this test!
I know it's hard to see but they both recieved their stripes! One more stripe and then a blue belt. They have both been working really hard in Cuong Nhu. I am so impressed by their desire to succeed and learn new things. I am so proud of them!
