These Christmas ornaments came out really well. They are made from cone-shaped cardstock, cloth, glitter, and sequins.
We, of course, did our yearly Christmas nativity. I was the angel...YESSS, finally! I remember when I was little always wanting to be the angel in the school production, but I think I was usually a shepherd. We used Handel's Messiah (Glory to God) and a flashligh, aka the glory of the Lord, for my debut appearance.
Thank you BeBe! We love advent calendars!
Hanging the stockings.
Christmas morning...ah yeah...puffs.
Happy birthday, Jesus!
What's in there?
Ah, yes, an environmentally friendly vehicle. Just what I wanted.
A Fwashwight! Yay! Alden has actually been working on saying his L's. It's making me a little sad because he's getting it. Instead of hearing, "I wuv you mommy.", I am now hearing, "I love you mommy." Truthfully, I am relieved that we won't be hiring a speech therapist, but it's sad too.
We caved. She got dance lessons for Christmas. One unexpected positive benefit from ballet lessons is the desire to listen to only "classical" music. So, at the very least, they are instilling a love for good music.
A train table. Everyone loves this, even daddy, although he might not admit it, I think it gives him some satisfaction to redesign it every couple of days.
Carpooling even further decreases our carbon footprint.
I think I'll end my Christmas post here. We love staying at home and celebrating as a family. They also were able to attend church, without me, sniff sniff, (I had been really looking forward to celebrating with everyone else at church).
