The search for the Famous Christmas Pickle!!!
Who knew that this would be such a hit. But, every year when we get out the Christmas boxes, at least one of the children will scream, Mom (or mama if its Courtney, cause she calls me Mama) "don't forget the Christmas pickle" so out it comes and it gets placed in its box, by the Christmas tree where it remains till I hide it amongst the branches of the tree for it to be found right after the stockings and Santa gifts are done. This year the gift was books on CD to listen to in the car during long drives. The children and I love listening to stories as we drive. This year Thomas tried his best to hide his tears over Beth's death in "Little Women" while Aiden's eyes grew huge over the events in the "Lemony Snicket" series. Right now we are enjoying the "Secret Garden".
