This year we read The Twenty-Four Days Before Christmas by Madelin L'Engle we also read lots of other Christmasy books.
We started out the month putting snow sugar on some cookies...
|This is us watching White Christmas Together...Friendly really liked the first half...I never did get to finish that movie...|
|Friendly made hers THAT long!!!|
|Wrap the cookie cutters thickly in coton yarn.|
|Spread peanutbutter over the cotton yarn.|
|Roll peanutbutter covered cookie cutters in birdseed|
|And hang up for the birds to enjoy! We added some cranberries for good measure...The cardinals have been visiting quite a bit!|
|We made snow topped Christmas Cookies|
|Why yes I like to enjoy some quality time with the ipad from inside a Christmas box...Doesn't everybody? Pip is a quirky kid.|
|The kids played Train several days...Which involved delivering presents and lots of bread crumbs. Don't ask me.|
|Paleo and Vegan Christmas Cookies!|
And for St. Nicholas Day the kids recieved some special Crayola Model Magic- Friendly LOVES the stuff...we all do actually!
|But she especially likes working on her cakes.|
This year I also tried to make it a priority to take each of the kids out on a special date to shop for other family members... This was a lot of fun, though I think next year we'll draw names from a hat! shopping for multiple presents in each trip was a bit of a headache! :)
|Friendly picked special crayons and a sticker book for her sisters a coffee mug for Nana and candycane boxers for Daddy|
|Roo picked out beautiful earrings for Nana, a computer Mouse for Daddy, and 2 special books for her sisters|
