Josiah and Livie drove out to the valley today. While everyone visited...Livie and I headed out for her date with Baachan. Our mission was to find gifts for her to give Josiah and Carrie (and to enjoy some time together). Liv's a pro and knew exactly what she wanted to find.
She also knew exactly where she wanted to eat - McDonald's. We finished the shopping and headed for lunch. She wondered if we'd see Alex and Nolan. She was excited to spot Nolan.
Arielle picked up the girls and they and Benny met us downtown to explore a bit of Colony Christmas Days. We went to the train depot to see Santa and reindeer...and oodles of people getting some Christmas shopping done.
|Reindeer headbands for all|
|Millie isn't so impressed|
We hid a second gift and I made up a clue - which I will not post here. I am banned from thinking up further clues as mine turned out to be a bit risqué. ::blush:: Not to worry, Livie found the gift! That's the point of the clue anyway.
When purchasing gifts for the hunts I picked some that would be family gifts, some cheap, some more expensive and many that would be things we could do together. I knew Liv would enjoy this one and we had decided not to go back out....a good night to work this one into the mix.
Stacia whipped up frosting while Allie and Liv shaped cookies. The downstairs oven didn't set off the alarm.
|Well done, girls!|
