The following day was Mallory's Christmas party at school. The parents basically stood around and watched the kids eat pizza and made a special treat - a christmas tree. You start with an ice cream cone, frost it with green icing, then add "ornaments"... in this case, they used m&m's.
Hey look, a telescope!
There wasn't much to the party, but Mallory appreciated that I was there :) I asked if she wanted to come home with me afterwards, but she decided she would rather finish the rest of her school day.
