Like "We're going on a bear hunt, take a camera, close door, squeak!"
Super adorable, but what the heck was she talking about? It took about two weeks of Ellie singing for Matt and I to figure out exactly what she was saying.
While her recent camera obsession has already prompted us to get her a camera for Christmas, some googling led me to this book.
We're Going on a Bear Hunt
You can bet that's added to the list. I'm thankful to be in a position where I can buy Ellie books on a whim. We love books.
Here are some other things I'm thankful for right now….
Ellie looking adorable in her glasses. Day two:
She also looks great with a cone on her head.
I passed my National Boards for teaching. Big deal. Huge relief. I found out very very early this morning.
Matt is exhausted because even though he went to bed (at my request) while I awaited my score, he was more nervous than me. And more excited. So grateful for his support and to be done with the NBPTS process.
My favorite Christmas treat is in stores again.
Get excited. Or mock me. Whatever. But this stuff makes my Christmastime coffee sooooo good. I'm already using my new Christmas tree mug, which I purchased on clearance last January. I held out for a long time.
I have great friends who care. Friends who organize sock drives for the homeless as the weather gets cold. Friends who organize Turkey Bowl to feed the hungry. Friends who live out their faith. I love those people. The same friends who see each other more rarely in our 30s than we did in our 20s, but who still love and care. Oh, and having friends for 10+ years as transplants to DC? Amazing.
That photo? Ellie's first Turkey Bowl. Her second Turkey Bowl was a bit better. We'll see how tonight goes; she may even try her hand at bowling.
Happy weekend. Enjoy. Give thanks. Have fun.
And hug a turkey.
