and I am loving it! Christmas is my second favorite holiday afterall (surpassed only by Valentine's Day which is obviously the best holiday ever because, hello! It is my birthday!). This year has been a fun combination of old and new traditions.
One of our new traditions this year was an advent calendar that included a fun family activity each day. It has been so much fun already! Here is what we have done so far...
- Get out the kid nativity sets and play out the story of Jesus' birth
- Watch Elf
- Make snow playdough
- Decorate a gingerbread house
- And on tonights agenda... Draw pictures in the snow (a.k.a. shaving cream on the table)
And Pickle is still bust suprising us every morning (or most mornings.. we might be a little forgetful when it comes to moving Pickle!)
And I have added a few more decorations to spruce things up around here. I have definitly gone much simpler in my decorating this year!
And I wanted to give a big "thank you" for everyones amazing support of my first post over at Homemakers Challenge. I feel so blessed by such amazing friends!
