A Christmas Story

Most of the time we wonder if our kids are listening to us at all. We used to feel fairly certain that even if they listened they didn't actually remember anything. That was until Lila proved us wrong many times. Lila got "Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree" as a present on her birthday. So we have been reading with our other Christmas stories to get her excited for Christmas. Apparently she memorized the whole thing already! (make sure to turn your volume up, she is talking kind of quietly).

Little Lila the genius. You should just start telling people your 3 year old can read. She is so cute and I love that you and Johnny are trying not to laugh the whole time....and I cannot believe how long her hair is. WE NEED TO SEE YOU GUYS!!
