i realize that a date like this will not happen in again in our lifetime or our children's lifetime. i at least wanted to take one picture. daylight was slipping away and i had francesca on me in the sling. so i ran outside barefooted and snapped elodie through the window. we then decorated her gingerbread house and make cupcakes for her birthday at preschool. little holiday moments that are my very favorite. so now i think i will remember this until the twelfth of never. and that's a long, long time.
