Papa came to visit on Wednesday night. Here are the kids with him on Friday, which was pajama day at school.
We spent Thursday shopping, and on Friday we wrapped gifts. And wrapped, and wrapped, and wrapped. My uncle Jim, who lives in LA, came to visit on Friday. We finished the wrapping before the kids got home from school (thank goodness! Thanks Dad!!!), and when they got home we baked and decorated Christmas cookies. We put Uncle Jim right to work, and he helped with the wrapping and baking and decorating.
On Saturday, we spent the day at the Phoenix Zoo. Daniel is sitting next to a stone that says, "Mommy loves you Daniel." It even has a picture of Thomas the Tank Engine, who he loves!!
Emily, Papa, and I made this wreath for Uncle Jim. Papa picked out the colors and helped us put it together. Michael helped, too. I think it turned out really well.
As always, the visit was too short, but we are so grateful that we got to see them both!!!
