Saturday was cold, cold, cold. The girls did some painting to keep themselves occupied while stuck in the house.
Christmas is long over; but Holy Mary still comes to visit with Baby Jesus. Here is the baby in a pipe cleaner manger. And Holy Mary wrapped in a very warm quilted mantle.
Sunday was much warmer so after Mass the girls went outside for a bit. I looked up from my pancakes and sausage to see Sophie attempting to pull Bella in the sled. I whooped and jumped for my camera.
Not that Bella had much better luck pulling Sophia.
I think this photo exemplifies the dynamic in their relationship quite well. Sophie just content to sit and wait. Bella runs off to do something else.
Waiting. Stoic Sophie.
Dom took advantage of the (relatively) nice weather to fetch some boxes of baby clothes out of the shed for me. I found Raggedy Ann in one of them. Last week Sophie had us tearing the house apart looking for her. And there she was. How she got there I’m not sure. But that bin has been in the shed since before Christmas.
Sophie was so very happy to see her.
Well, you’ll have to trust me on that. The light in her eyes when she first saw her precious dolly was priceless. This stony face. That’s just… Sophie.
Note the stick sticking out of Sophie’s boot. How she managed that, I’m not sure.
