julian and plum came home today. since they were not here during christmas, we had a little celebration for them when they arrived this afternoon to see what christmas gifts santa had brought them while they were away.

afterwards we went on a family walk so they could take their new scooters for a test drive and landed at the park before heading home for dinner.





i am so happy to have these two home. it's back to school tomorrow. we will be busy, busy, busy in these upcoming weeks. we decided on a house in nashville and are just waiting to hear back on our application. if all goes as planned we will be in our new home in just a little over a month. eek!

footnote: for those inquiring, the scooters are maxi kicks, birdie's is a mini kick. her helmet is a little nutty, nutcase helmet. sailor's stroller is a stokke.

    Wow! A month!? So soon. I used to spend Christmas with my mum when I was little and then have a belated celebration with my Dad. It was really sweet because when we got to his apartment at like, 3 in the afternoon, he would make my brother and I put on our pyjamas and go to bed so that we could pretend to be asleep and then wake up to a pretend Christmas morning :) xx
