Tree Topper

As per tradition, Margot put the star on top of the tree on Saturday. I say this every year, but this year's tree is really gorgeous: full, lush, and smells delicious.

She's getting so big I wonder how this will go next year. For fun, how about doing a flashback to 2006.

Foodie, Part II

After visiting Santa on Saturday, Margot and I went into William Sonoma so I could ogle the kitchen items. We stood patiently while a saleswoman demonstrated a fancy water pitcher, which she noted featured a German-made filter. She offered us sample cups of water so we could taste it. Since we were thirsty, we each took one.

Margot gulped hers down and loudly announced, "That German water tastes exactly like regular American water to me!"

And she was right.

All I Want for Christmas

Besides her two front teeth, of course.

This morning, Margot offered the following gem on the quality of the chocolate in her Advent Calendar:

"It tastes good when you first place it on your tongue and let it sit there, but then it starts to taste like Chapstick."

I'm glad I'm raising her to have a discerning palate. It really IS terrible chocolate.
