Still not feeling well, but Ian came home from school in such a good mood we had to do something! He even greeted me with "I missed you today Momma!" and then explained that the guy had said "holiday." Shea translated that for me into, he heard NPR on the way home and they were talking about Christmas.
We made gingerbread cookies which meant lots of tasting and mismeasuring and anticipation for them to be done! They are his favorite though! In fact if I mention cookies he says, gingerbread! Even in July!
