Sue's darling little girl arrived here in Washington! It was sunny here, but a little on the cool side.
So I made her a little blanket, and cap to keep her head warm. She talked about how she loves to snuggle under a warm blanket on a cool day with her teddy bear, and some hot cocoa.
We talked about Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, and the fun memories that we make. When I mentioned Christmas...her eyes lit up and she got a big smile on her face! We were looking through some catalogues, and she saw some bunk beds. She thought that it would be so much fun to sleep on those with her teddy bear...they could have a sleep over and everything! But... then she saw a "Sleigh Bed"! She just beamed with the idea of sleeping in a sleigh...especially on Christmas Eve! So, we made one especially for her!
She couldn't wait until Christmas Eve to snuggle into her sleigh with her bear and hot chocolate...with marshmallows of course! So we snuggled her into her bed with her bear and hot cocoa, and read stories.
