Happy Holidays!

Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas!  

December has been a whirl wind of a month!  From getting the flu… which put us down for a week to getting ready to the holidays!  I don’t know about you but I”m ready for a weekend of nothing to do!  

Here’s a peek at what we’ve been up to this month …. 

We hung our stockings with care …. 

We adopted a tree at the local park for Lilly’s Daisy Troop – we made bird seed ornaments 

Made Gingerbread house- a school project. I went to school to help Lilly out … They used milk cartons as the house so you just frosted the graham crackers on the house! Genius if you ask me… and the house has yet to collapse!! 😉 

Saturday with the house a mess and being trapped in the house all day because my car broke down =(  I stopped everything and made the melted snowman cookies with Lilly!  What a fun cookie and she  rolled the cookie puddles out, iced the cookies, and then used food markers to decorate.  Definitely a cookie that we will make again!

In getting ready for Santa’s big arrival ….. We made our reindeer food.  This year we made a carrot wreath for the reindeer …. And they took it!!!  {insert major excitement from a 6 year old when it was gone this morning!!) 

Linus – thanks for visiting us for Christmas #3 – Lilly is looking forward to you returning next year!  Here is Linus in his last spot this season and with a letter in hand from Lilly. The letter says Merry Christmas Linus – safe trip back!  I love the magic of Christmas!! 

We left Santa sugar cookies and this year she wanted to leave Hot Chocolate.  … Look he wrote us a note back on my chalk board! 

One of her favorite gifts – McKenna arrived this morning!  Insert squeal of excitement!!  

Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 

I will be enjoying the next week with family and will be back with new things next year!
