Well, Day 2 ended with Momma popping expired Tylenol (the only kind we had!) due to a massive headache...needless to say, it didn't go as I had envisioned. Our activity for today was to pull out the Christmas decorations and decorate the house. Ella was pretty excited when she saw everything - I'm pretty sure she doesn't remember any of it from last year.
She found a stuffed reindeer and carried him around for awhile. She also carried around a Christmas ball on her wrist, but I would have to say her favourite part of decorating was the lights. I turned on the lights on a tree decoration we have and she said "Look Mommy, it's lighting!" Hopefully she will be this easily amused for a few more years.
After about 10 minutes into decorating Ella asked to watch Sesame Street! Every 5 minutes after that she asked me for something - a book, a snack, water, her teddy, music for dancing, more colours (crayons)...you get the idea. On top of that she kept moving a candle from the coffee table onto the foot rest...apparently it was getting in the way of her workspace (for colouring). By the time Harrison woke up from his morning nap, I had about 4 decorations put up. I tried asking Ella where I should hang things, and showing her what I was doing but she was more interested in seeing the finished product! I did get some good pics of the kids though. Maybe she'll be more helpful when it comes to putting everything away! :)
