We wanted to have our tree up for December 1st and this was about the only chance we had, so we took it! We pulled the tree up from downstairs and started to set it up and immediately knew we had a problem... Buddy was completely intrigued and started climbing it!

I got a call from Ben's teacher at school just before lunch telling me that Ben had won the Book Fair draw for $25 worth of books! She asked if I would like to come help him pick something, so after lunch I headed to the school. Ben was SO excited when I arrived at his classroom. He bounce all the way to the door and exclaimed, "This is my lucky day!". We went in to the book fair and he immediately started looking at what he could get. I was sure that he'd pick one of the larger Lego books, but I was wrong! He headed right to this kit where you can make electronic things. He looked at a few other things, but kept coming back to this. It was exactly $25 (and something I never would have bought for him). He can hardly wait to start building all the different things it has instructions for... an airplane (go figure), a car, a robot, etc.

We've been attending the Festival of Lights at the Remington Center since it started. The kids look forward to it every year. This year we got a bit smarter (lazier) and didn't arrive until it was actually supposed to start (so we weren't standing out in the cold any longer than necessary). We then stood by the doors instead of by the fires, so that as soon as Santa arrived and the lights turned on, we were some of the first into the building! We ended up being about 4th in line for the kids to get their pictures taken with Santa Claus! They moved his location this year and it worked out so much nicer than in the front lobby like other years.

Last night and today while I was with my sisters in Lethbridge, Lennard went gung ho on the bathroom and made huge progress! He finished priming, painted, layed the flooring (which I love!), and installed the shower head and the toilet! What a guy! It was so nice to come home to so much work done. We're waiting on a few parts for the vanity and then hopefully we'll have a fully functional bathroom again! Hooray!

We were deep cleaning the kids bedrooms and switching furniture around today and Ben found a sticky mustache. He was so excited to wear it... and he wore it half the day! Even when we stopped in to the library! ha! ha! He definitely got the comments about it.

Buddy has quickly become part of the family. The kids are still getting used to him and Emma will climb furniture to get away from him when he starts to pounce and get a little too playful. He can be found on my lap most mornings while I work on stuff and I've been enjoying our quiet times together.

The kids were SO excited to get to wear their costumes to school today. I was able to go to the school to watch all the students parade around and show off their costumes.
