So, so glad this last week is over! So glad break has started! So looking forward to Christmas! But before we get there, take a look at our last week of crazy. . .
I think all of us are just so tired! Miss E fell asleep really early by the Christmas tree tonight. One tired out girl.
Gingerbread cookies are a must at Christmas, and I found time to fit them in this week. So yum! I use Mel's Kitchen Cafe recipe here.
Ben got our outside Christmas lights up, and they look awesome! You can see a part of our huge tree in the living room window.
Had a fun experience to go Christmas shopping with the high school marching band.
This whole group invaded Wal-mart at 8 a.m. Wednesday morning. They had saved their money from marching in parades in the fall to buy Christmas presents for 10 lucky kids. I went around with Miss O's group to buy for a little girl. It was a neat experience.
Our 4th and final school Christmas program of the season--middle school band and jazz band. Miss E in up there playing the trombone in her amazing jazz band.
Enjoying our tradition of reading a Christmas story each night--Miss O reading with Mr J looking at the pictures.
And we finally hit the weekend! Yeah! The kids needed to wind down and enjoy some relaxing time and played some games.
Hope you have a blessed and wonderful Christmas! Thanks for visiting!
