A crown, platter, glasses, and lantern are all ready to celebrate the feast of St. Lucy. We had Lussekatter and hot chocolate. Neither of my children ate the Lussekatter, but at least Linus enjoyed the chocolate milk.
Lucy and Linus with their Grandma in the tent she made for them. It fits over a card table. When we set it up, Linus was fussing a little bit and wanted to be held. Grandma went in to demonstrate, and Lucy quickly followed. Linus saw this, stopped fussing, said, "Uh-huh!" and wiggled to be put down. It remains one of his favorite places to play.
While Grandma and Grandpa were here, we visited the local zoo. While the monkeys were not out, the cats were unusually active, which was fun to see.
One day while playing with blocks, Lucy quite spontaneously picked up these two blocks and said, "Look Mama, got my camera. Take a picture."
