A Flurry of Christmas Activity

'Tis the season for fun Christmas activities! We have been busy little elves around here!

We've had friends over to make Christmas Crafts,

and we've been to Christmas parties,



We have also started a few new traditions.
We made Christmas cookies with all of the grandmas!

(Deedee was manning the camera.)

And on December 1st, we began our advent calendar. Everyday has a piece of paper with a special activity on it. Some are as simple as getting a piece of candy and some more involved like going to look at Christmas lights, doing a special craft, or memorizing a Bible verse. The girls and I have had fun doing it!

Early in the month, the note said "Open box of Christmas toys." The girls enjoyed getting out all of the Santa hats, Christmas books and nativity scenes.

Christmas is only 10 days away...we are counting down!
