We had help completing our Advent task of the day! GrandMama, GrandPapa, and Uncle Willy arrived to spend the weekend, and Alex was so happy to see them and share all of her Christmas activities! She was THRILLED to be able to trim the tree-- even though she was up way past her bedtime (we snuck in a visit to Auntie Rorie at St. Olaf for dinner-- no photos, sorry!).
Carefully placing her Santa Lucia elf on the tree.
Uncle Willy was so much fun to play with. Alex loved stringing her new beads again and again and again. After the tree was decorated, it was time to unwind with a mug of 'hot' chocolate and a good book. Thanks for all the stories, GrandMama!
