This year Lillian is finally old enough to get Christmas, so she's really been getting into the spirit. She's watched both Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus is Coming to Town, so she's officially an expert on all things Christmas. There have also been lots of activities to get into the spirit. As usual we went to the Mountain View city tree-lighting ceremony (though the pictures didn't turn out this year). She also got her very own, tiny Christmas tree, which will double as a rosemary bush for our new house.
And just tonight we went to a gingerbread house-making party, which Lillian helped decorate between eating the building materials and playing with her friends. Eric is particularly proud of the lamppost.
