Last night we went to the Mayor's Christmas tree lighting in old downtown Lee's Summit. Her elf hat from last year still fits.

First we stopped at the coffee shop downtown and got hot chocolate and Santa cookies.

About every five minutes Violet asked where Santa was. Of course when he finally arrived, on the fire truck, and walked up the side walk she hid her face.

We decided that we weren't going to talk to Santa tonight. We'll do that another night.

We got a Mazda CX7. The color is Black Cherry. We've had it about 3 1/2 weeks now. It seats 5. It's larger than our Mazda 5 van but has less trunk space. We have more leg room and head room. Violet can now sit in the middle and see a lot better. The tires on this car are HUGE and we are actually looking forward to the first snow to see how they handle. zoom zoom!

Violet has hit the "WHY" stage. Every answer to WHY is another WHY. Also if there are multiples of anything, say a color, a shape, an animal, ANYTHING, she says "Mommy which one you like". She doesn't just say this once she says it over and over and over again. It's driving me a bit crazy.

This years school picture is much better than last years. The fact that she is smiling shocks me. Anytime we go to get photos taken she gets all shy and frowns. Perfect example is her Halloween photo. I only wish the background was different and her hair looked better. But you can't do much when you're not there.
