After the excitement of The Nutcracker yesterday morning, we had another activity last night. The nearby state park was having a celebration with Santa, crafts, music, face painting, and refreshments. It was free! So we took the girls and Nelson's parents and had a grand old time. Our tree is now sporting a couple of new ornaments that Sarah and Natalie made last night. :)
In addition to the morning ballet and the evening at the park, I had an afternoon activity. I was feeling pretty tired while at the park, and I drank a Mountain Dew just to try to stay awake until bedtime. It didn't really work. We got home just after 8:00, and by 9:00 I was dozing off in my chair.
So Nelson graciously decided to let me sleep in this morning. Well, he tried to anyway. But while he was in the bathroom, Natalie sneaked downstairs.
"Mama? Are you awake?"
"No," I grumbled in response.
"I want you, Mama," she insisted.
"I'm sleeping," I replied.
"Well...can I have the iPad?" she inquired.
"If I give you the iPad, will you let me sleep?"
"Yes!" she proclaimed. "The iPad is your only hope for me to leave you alone!"
Sarah and Natalie had a birthday party at a local gymnastics place today. Nelson took them though, so you'll have to hassle him for pictures. ;)
