This morning we watched Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, made and played with peppermint play dough, and right now the kids are practicing writing letters in some dollar store Disney workbooks. They're really into that kind of thing lately.
Before all of that, however, we had a rocky start to the morning. Long story short, we were all up at 5 A.M. In order to drink my coffee in relative peace and get over the fact that I would not be sleeping in at all, I gladly obliged when the kids asked to go take pictures with my phone. They haven't really taken pictures before, so I was pretty impressed with what they captured.

Don't you love the one from behind Ginger? Who's scouting whom now, little elf? And kitty's ear (at least he got to snooze a bit). And the feet. And the portraits of each other. All that cuteness really helped the coffee kick in quickly.
