The kids made Christmas paper-chains for Josh's tent last week and they just got mailed off to him along with a whole bunch of other Christmas stuff today.
I cut a whole bunch of strips of Christmas colored paper and some white strips too (so they could draw pictures and write notes to their dad) before I even picked them up from school.
We even listened to some Christmas tunes to get into the holiday spirit.
That's part of Annie's choreographed rendition of Santa Claus is Coming to Town. ("He knows when you are sleeping.")
They turned out so cool that I want to make some more for the house.
And then we had brownies and vanilla bean ice cream.
Of course Coley wanted to ensure that he had the longest (and most detailed) paper chain of the bunch, so he kept on working long after the girls had grown tired of paper-chain-making.
He is SO my child.
And if you're reading this Josh Downs...I hope you can feel how much we love you even from 10,000 miles away.
