For Christmas, Louise hasn't asked for much.  Charlotte, however, would like a guitar, and Claire would like a rock band.

Meanwhile, the tree and the lights are up, and we're busy getting ready for the 25th.  The whole street enjoyed decorating Christmas cookies and a gingerbread house at Chez Atherton:


We were thankful to be able to spend a couple of weeks over Thanksgiving with Pop and Granny.  We wrestled, did crafts, went to birthday parties, visited the Greensboro Science Center...and Granny tried to teach Louise how to knit.

We may have driven them up a tree, but they seemed to enjoy riding the Santa Train with us.


They also enjoyed watching Louise, Claire, and Mummy ride on the Masters Garden float in the Hillsborough Christmas Parade:
