We had a busy December preparing for Christmas. Celebrating Jesus’ birthday is a BIG deal at our house! We count down with a fun activity each day. Here are some of the fun things we did. Don’t judge that our kids seems to wear the same outfit the entire month.
We decorated our tree (in shorts and t-shirts)
Nathan was having so much fun one day that he fell asleep in his fort
and later on the couch. If you know our kids, you know that is rare!
We drank hot-cocoa in our Santa mugs
Made Rice Krispy treats
Enjoyed the fair weather
Played dress up
Went to see the Nutcracker
Wrote letters to Santa at the library
Visited Santa at the FNI Christmas Party
Hannah had a Christmas party at school
We took a quick trip to Evadale to visit Me-Maw and Nan
Did some holiday baking
We opened presents with Nana, Pappy, Aunt Becca, and Uncle Jon Michael. Nathan loved his Ninja turtle race track
Hannah loved her American Doll
Henry loved the paper
We did some shopping. This was one of Nathan’s ideas for Mommy. We opted for the robe on the next rack.
We also wrapped some gifts
Hannah wanted no confusion, so she went with first names on her gift tags.
It was a great month leading up to Christmas!
