ABCs song and playing school

I am loving being home with Aidan over the Thanksgiving break (5 whole days!). We have had great fun playing and doing art. Her imagination is really starting to take flight, which is cool. She's been playing with her "Little People" figures, taking them to school. She had lessons and PE (they caught a football), lunch, and nap time. The video below if of Aidan teaching her class the "ABC song."

I must say, I have great respect for mothers who stay home full-time. Just coming up with activities to keep Aidan engaged without relying on the TV is hard. Just today, we have played school, painted, (watched some TV), danced, made a costume out of a paper bag, and had a scavenger hunt - and this is all before nap time. After naps, we are going to put up some Christmas decorations. Big excitement!

Playing the piano and singing

This is Aidan's new interest:

Welcome Bishop Robinson


Today, our church was honored to have Bishop Robinson of New Hampshire worship with us. He spoke to us after church during out annual Thanksgiving luncheon. We have much to be thankful for, especially this man of God who is breaking down barriers for all of us by being who God called him to be. Such a lovely, loving man. We pray God's blessings upon him and his partner Mark as they walk a difficult but wondrous road.

First hair cut

On November 8th, Aidan had her first official haircut (other than mommy cutting her bangs). She wasn't so sure at first, but was happy with the results at the end. In other big fashion news, Aidan has kept a bow in her hair all day (she usually pulls them out). Big excitement for the girly mommy who likes to do her hair.

Foxes

Aidan has developed a fear of foxes. I'm not exactly sure why, but she's afraid that they are in her room at night. She's even afraid of Swiper on Dora. Yesterday, we went to Walgreens and found "Go away fox spray." We were lucky to find it at Walgreens and not have to go to a speciality store. We came home and sprayed her room and then sprayed it again before bedtime. She's not entirely convinced, but it helped some.

Her new favorite phrase is "Oh man!" when something goes wrong.

Aidan says she must watch Wiggles right now, so we are practicing being patient. She has a patient body, but that mouth....

More later.
