Friday, the 3rd, we ate gingerbread cookies and watched our favorite holiday movie, same as last year, VeggieTales - Saint Nicholas. Nice to have an entertaining, silly movie that makes you excited for Christmas while reminding you about what Christmas is about. (And no, it's not about giving people presents. Not really at least.)
Lucy really enjoyed the movie this year. Even her new magazine couldn't distract her. We finished our holiday shopping that morning and had to run into the bookstore. Guy grabbed the "Trains4Kids" magazine and Lucy grabbed National Geographic for Kids - 10 tiny pages, $3.99. Rip off! But. it was so cute to see her so excited carrying around a teeny tiny magazine I bought it anyway.
