Mabel and I had a Special Day on Friday, and did everything just exactly for fun and for no other reason. We stayed in pajamas for a long time lingering over breakfast. We read books, mostly counting books, since Mabel likes to practice counting now and can read some of the numbers. We worked a complicated sea-creature puzzle that Mabel picked out from among the new Christmas toys. Many activities of the day were too busy to get photographed, but the late afternoon trip to the playground did get photographed.
