Daily December 10--Week 49

Enjoying the month.  We had the elementary Christmas program this past week.  So glad we live in a small town where it is still a Christmas program, and you can still sing songs about Christ and the real meaning of Christmas.  I am so grateful for that.  Still doing my daily December blogging, so stop by often.  Here is a look at our week. . .

Sunday evening treats are a big tradition in our house.  Mr J helped me make chocolate chip cookies.  I posted the recipe in yesterday's blog post if you are interested.

School Christmas program.  Mr J was a toy soldier. So cute!!!

Miss E sang, played the alto recorder, and played the xylophone.  She did awesome!!!

Another Christmas tradition at our house--Celebrating Sinterklass Eve.  More about that in this post.

This evening we didn't have anything going on.  We were supposed to do 'star gazing' tonight which was the activity on our Christmas countdown chain (more about that tomorrow), but it was cloudy.  It was pretty warm out, and Ben decided it would be fun to do a bonfire and sing carols while the kids burned sticks.  It was a very nice, relaxing evening that the kids really enjoyed.  Ben and the kids built a fire pit in our backyard several years ago which we love, and it was so nice to enjoy this evening.

Mr J and I made some Nutter Butter reindeer cookies for a church party today.  They are the easiest Christmas cookies to make ever!  

Our church Christmas party was this evening.  They had the youth sing some songs at the end.  Good food, good company, and great music always make for a wonderful evening!

Thanks for visiting and hope you had a great week!

  1. Looks like a great week. I love the bon-fire idea and those reindeer cookies.

  2. It's so true (and so sad) about not being able celebrate the true meaning of Christmas in some places...
    Thanks for sharing these lovely photos with us!
