Climbing and swinging.  (11/6/18)



We woke up to Ella Fitzgerald singing, “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” and found that Elaine had started Christmas.   Wesley was dressed like an elf (though that’s normal), and they’d invited their grandmother over.  ‪They'd even put together Christmas gift bags, assembled from things around the house.‬  ‬(11/11/18)
