Along with our activity-a-day calendar, we've put up the Advent calendar my mom made with Mikko's self-proclaimed "favorite" candies…
which, one day in, he decided he doesn't like anymore.
"You talkin' to me?"
"Well, I'm the only one here. Who do you think you're talking to?"
(I like imagining reindeer confrontations.)
"Oh, hello, I didn't see you there."
(Whereas I've decided this camel was entirely chill.)
Happy sleighing boys!
Oops, that didn't last.
(LOVE the expression on both their faces. Ha ha!)
We went to our neighborhood "downtown" for some holiday celebrations,
including a mule-drawn carriage ride.
It was raining so hard we had the carriage to ourselves.
Can you tell?
We thought we'd try pictures with Santa.
What if we photobomb him?
Oh, no, that guy with the beard is still there.
A family in our neighborhood goes all out decorating, so we stopped to see.
Let me tell you — the astonishing abundance was a hit with five-year-olds!
Ain't it always the case? You just get the baby to sleep in the manger …
… and a train goes by!
Doesn't it look like he's enthralled by the lights?
He's actually afraid the carved bear is going to spring to life and eat him.
True story. He signed it to me.
