In the morning we woke up to this! Both girls were absolutely thrilled, and Magdalena was thoroughly impressed to find Santa's Magic Key hanging on the tree. (Since he used it to get in then left it on the tree so we could find it.) All together a very fun filled evening!

First set of Pajammies. Two more pairs of pants and one more shirt to go. She likes them a lot. I like that they are nice and roomy. The sleeves and pant legs do have a bit of growing room cause she seems to be on a length spurt recently. But her hands actually come out of the arms, she's holding them up for some silly reason.

It's also neat because if you flip it around, Magdalena can wear it "bolero" style. You can see pictures of that startig here:

I left the girls with Erich and took off to the library for a few minutes this evening. WOW. I forgot how wonderful it is to browse through the books without someone going through and ripping all the books off the shelf while the other one screams "MOOOOM! She's taking all the books OFF!"
Anyway, I picked up this book today and wow, I could knit a lot of the stuff in here! Economical and fast! I've already seen several things that I like and will probably be doing. The only problem is that my to do list is already so long with knitting for work and for pleasure! We're trying to scale back Christmas and do only hand made stuff, which I did a lot of last year. THIS year though I'm getting smart and mixing it up. I'm not just doing knit stuff because, while knit is incredibly beautiful, it takes longer. I've got a mix of sewing, knitting, and crocheting on my list. I should really nail down the list and stop looking at books though and just stick to the plan! Only 3 months you know!
Magdalena is SO much fun. And so frustrating. Three is definitely challenging, but also so fun. I love watching her learn and piece things together and develop this little personality, even if that personality is a wee bit, um, like me. If you ask her how old she is she's "three and a HALF" don't forget the half part. ;)
She's going to start a tumbling class next week. She is so excited about it and asks every single day if it's time to go to her "mumbling" class. She LOVES dinosaurs. She can write the letter A. She's good at recognizing them. She loves to dig in the sand and build rivers (taught by Daddy!). She can ride a trike pretty darn well at this point and still loves Sesame Street.

I've been busy. Trying to be productive around the house and be with the girls too. I just finished up my second wedding cake for the month. I'm really enjoying it and the bit of extra $$$ it brings in is very nice. You can see the cakes I've been doing here:
