The weekend

We're still playing catch-up from the week-long flu hiatus... so it's only pics for now...

Thursday was our long-awaited trip to the Huntington Library/Art/Gardens in San Marino. Here's the wee one in the Children's Garden.

Friday was a cookie makin' playdate and finding our tree. Em tested a few of the cookies before they were done... but he had a wonderful time and was quite thoughtful about what he wanted where. I used a sugar cookie recipe from "A Bakers's Field Guide to Christmas Cookies"

Saturday was finalizing the outdoor decorations... Rob made 10 of these 2 foot high trees... each with 300 lights on them. Next year, he wants them to turn on and off to music!

Sunday, was tree hugging and Santa visiting. Em loves the book "Little Tree" written by Chris Raschka and based on the poem by E. E. Cummings.
