The girls had their first basketball game over the weekend. They lost, but only by 6 so that wasn't so bad. Lindsey is so much shorter than everyone in this league, but she's hanging in there. Olivia has never played basketball so she's trying to get her skills and speed up to par. I didn't get to take photos, because I was working the scoreboard/book and needed to concentrate. I'll do better next time. This weekend is our "bye" week, so they don't have a game.
Olivia performed in her first Mummer's Play this weekend at the museum. She'll be spending a lot of time there over the next weeks, getting ready for the 10 stretch of nightly tours. Once we picked her up from the museum, we headed off to ring the bell for the Salvation Army for a few hours. Santa (my brother Nelson) always goes with us on this endeavor.
St. Nicholas Day and we made cookies (ahead of time) to surprise our neighbor with. I searched high and low for a "traditional European St. Nicholas Day cookie recipe". I was hoping the one I came up with was right. I sent Lindsey over very early to deposit a package on Ms. Kay's doorstep, and then we left for the gym. She called as soon as we got home and said that the box "smelled like home" (she's native to Luxembourg), and that the cookies were just like the ones she remembers as a child. SCORE!!
