Sarah is definitely in Christmas mode. She asks every morning if it's Christmas yet. She LOVES looking at Christmas lights. And I've already mentioned that she has selected gifts for some people and that we've watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (She is looking forward to viewing the Charlie Brown special soon).
She is also frequently singing her own unique version of "Frosty the Snowman." She's got the tune pretty close to right, but her lyrics are a bit unusual! Try to imagine these words being sung to the "Frosty" music:
Frosty the Snowman,
he never, ever starts
but when he puts a carrot to his nose!
And she just sings those same lines, over and over again! :) Hilarious.
In other news, Sarah is still missing dear Ethan from Bible study. Our class doesn't start until Jan. 7, but she is still proclaiming, "When I grow up, I'm going to marry Ethan and he's going to love me forever!"
We went to watch Nelson's first basketball game for the church team tonight. Sarah has talked for weeks about wanting to go see the games, so she was really excited. And she did well throughout most of the game, clapping and cheering and saying, "Nice shot!" The last ten minutes or so of the game, she got tired and cranky and ready to go home. But overall, she really seemed to enjoy the experience of attending her first sporting event.
Little Baby Girl is moving around a lot today. She has been quite the active little thing! I think she must be having a party in there! ;)
Hopefully we will get the house decorated this week for Christmas and be able to post pictures (not to mention appease Sarah, who is begging for the Christmas tree). :) She needs a place to put all these presents she's bought, after all!
