a few of our favorite books. harper loves eric carle books and all of his beautiful collaged animals. when i was an art teacher i did an eric carle unit and was reading the book "brown bear, brown bear, what do you see?" to kindergartners and one of the little boys would shout the words after i read them. so every time we read that book i think of quintin shouting with all of his might, "BROWN BEAR, BROWN BEAR, WHAT DO YOUUUU SEE?"!!
harper is finally getting into coloring. i'm so excited, because, well, i used to teach art and love everything involving color and mess and creativity.
we've been crazy busy this week and i haven't picked up the camera since last friday. tomorrow we are hosting a party for christopher's work for *30* people!!! i'm a little terrified, but i'm sure it will be fine. i'm going to be cooking like a maniac tomorrow.
on saturday we are going on a "vacation"! christopher has a week off and we are going to texas and oklahoma in a whirlwind trip to see all of our peeps. it's not exactly the relaxing vacation you would hope for, but we are all badly missing our families and will not be able to travel during the holidays since he will be working. i'm gathering up fun things for harper to do on a 10+ hour drive. i'll be knitting baby gifts. what do you do with your kids in the car?
