Chickadee Thursday–Fifty-Seven Months

Tonight, “The Bigs” had their final choir rehearsal before Christmas Eve church, and Chickadee, Dolly, and I tagged along to listen to them.

Chickadee loves the Christmas tree at Hope!


She’s very excited that Christmas is almost here!

Fifty-Six Months

Chickadee’s favorite of our Thanksgiving books is A Turkey for Thanksgiving, so of course she had to “read” the story to Dolly!

Fifty-Five Months

Today we visited the first Legends and Lanterns festival in St. Charles, MO. Of course Dolly had to come along for the ride!


We saw pretty much everything, including the Dia de los Muertos Plaza:


And a bonus picture without Dolly…Chickadee really had fun practicing riding a “horse” according to Ichabod Crane’s instructions!


Once we were home, Chickadee also had a fun time showing Dolly all the stickers she had collected in St. Charles!


Chickadee Thursday–Fifty-Four Months

Right now, Chickadee’s favorite book is Make Way for Ducklings. This morning I caught her “reading” the story to Dolly:



I especially love all of the quacking sound effects…she’s adorable!

Fifty-One Months

Chickadee and Dolly had a very busy day today!

All four of Chickadee’s older siblings are in choir camp this week, so we started the morning off with Matins at that church:


We then spent about four hours at the St. Louis Zoo, and did almost everything! We rode the train, saw a sea-lion show (a first for Chickadee), visited our favorite animals, and walked around in the extreme heat!


After we were done at the zoo, I thought we deserved a treat, and a place to cool down, so we went to The Cheesecake Factory. It was delicious!


After all that, I think Chickadee will sleep well tonight!
