Christmas Wish List

Since you've been asking, here's all I want for Christmas from my Amazon wish list. We opened Christmas presents last night and Brent gave me a Black and Decker Food Processor (which was #1 on my list) and some simple but elegant glass serving bowls. Now I can serve vegetables and mashed potatoes in something other than the pots they were cooked in! I feel so grown-up.

The girls and I got headphones for our flight to Utah. They practiced wearing them this morning while watching Curious George. I've loaded the computer with Sesame Street podcasts so I'm hoping we're good to go! We also gave the girls Color Wonder by Crayola so they can color and I don't have to worry about them destroying anything. They also got several books that I'm excited to read with them.

Brent got his #1 from his wish list, too: Sketchbook Pro, which is a art studio program where you can free hand your drawings with his tablet computer. It has really cool effects for adding color, like airbrushing. I'm hoping he'll let me fiddle with it too! Other things Brent's interested in include a book light for reading at night, new sheepskin slippers like the kind from L.L. Bean.

Laptime Songs for Mommies

This month has been crazy busy around here. We enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with a couple other med school families. We've been doing the library thing and the church thing and the playing thing. Sammi has recently become obsessed with Dora. So we do the Dora thing during Elli's naps.
But the reason I've been most busy is I've been putting together my very first eBook! Well, it's not just mine! Brent did an awful lot of the design work and the technical stuff I couldn't do. But we worked together and got it done. It's all I envisioned it would be. I won't bore you with any more details about it, but if you want you can check it out here.

Oh, and in case you haven't heard, I have a giveaway over at Because Babies Grow Up for a VTech Ride and Learn Giraffe Bike. Very exciting! Come enter to win it, please!

Now that this project is done, I'll get some cute pics of the girls up. I promise!
