Esme and her pal, scaling the rocks beneath Marblehead Light.
Progress, with a dash of Doc Martin
She solemnly swears she is up to no good!
We discovered today that her cozy black blanket can also double as an invisibility cloak. Score! Soon enough she’ll be off to Honeydukes for some Chococlate Frogs and the Three Broomsticks for a pint of Butterbeer.
Not a bad day for a walk to the library!
The month of December, somehow, seemed shorter than advertised. And, thus, Esme received a big ball of yarn under the tree instead of something hand knit. The upswing is that she got to help in the choosing of the pattern and project and I get to knit it in January without the busyness of Christmas looming over me.
I took advantage of the warm weather this afternoon and took a long walk at the beach while Esme was at dance. I was treated not only to a beautiful sunset over Boston, but also this lovely moonrise over Swampscott.
These two were very willing to oblige me with a photo at the sledding hill today. But don’t be deceived by their angelic faces. As soon as they were in the sled together and smiling and I was framing the shot…they pushed off and started sliding backwards, and away from me. See the sled tracks? What goof balls!
A little end of the day down time. Pink cheeks, cute hair and snuggly play clothes. Sweetest little couch scene.
The girls were honored to be asked to decorate their little cousin’s first birthday cake. A giant number one, fireworks and dinosaur & shark sprinkles were the order of the day.
