Music, a visit to Daddy, and Family Game Night

Today we returned to music class after a few months hiatus.

Libi was beyond thrilled to be back-- so much so that she threw a fit when class was over.

It is only a three-week holiday class, but we are enjoying every minute of it!

This class was quite a workout for all the Mommy's!

We pulled the kids through the studio-- pretending to be horses,

bounced the kids on our laps, and twirled them til their hearts content. (Actually Libi got Miss Moira to twirl her the first time then I took over after that.)

We did some of our favorite things today as well: scarves,

instrument free-play,

and bubbles!!

Libi is a much better bubble blower now then she was for our last class, but she did eat a great deal of bubbles when she inhaled as opposed to blowing.

Next it was off to Daddy's class to visit his yearbook students.

Libi took this opportunity to draw on Daddy's white board. She actually liked erasing it better than drawing on it-- but we had to limit her when she began to erase Daddy's agenda for his classes.

On our way out Libi found every leaf on the ground to step on-- it's a good thing I wasn't in a hurry to get anywhere!

She also woke up with a very runny nose today. Not sure if it's a cold or allergies, but the pockets in her little holiday vest are the perfect place to stash lots of Kleenex.

For day 4 of our Advent celebration we had family game night!

We started off with a huge floor puzzle that cousin Bridget gave to Libi for her birthday.

It took quite a bit longer than I expected as Libi doesn't quite have the concept of straight edges going on the outside-- we will be working on that.

We did finish and we were all quite proud of ourselves!

Next it was on to Elefun, a game that the Strassner's gave to Libi. The elephant blows little butterflies out of its trunk that you catch in a little net.

It was a great deal of fun for everyone (Tobee even tried to catch some!) Libi did much better at grabbing them on the ground then as they were fluttering in the air, but she still thought it was a wonderful game!
