* A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2016*
Matteo: The great Christmas tree hunt, 2016. You wore your 3D glasses from the movie theater and had a ball running around pointing to every tree and saying "this one! this one!" You helped entertain Lilah, by clapping along with her, one of your favorite games to play together (while singing "clap hands, here comes Lilah!"). When we finally found our tree, we all "clapped hands" to celebrate.
Lilah: Your first time picking out a Christmas tree! You have really started to walk all over the place in the last couple of weeks, and you relish your newfound independence. When we let you down out of the cart, you were beaming with pride as you toddled around inspecting the trees. It's going to be a very busy Christmas this year, as we chase you around the house and attempt to keep you away from the ornaments!
