a smattering of pre-Christmas happenings

Saturday, December 24, 2011

It's been such a wondrful week with the children home from school. I wish that we had a two week break every month! I LOVE just hanging out with my kids!

We started out the week by going to a Christmas play called A Child's Christmas in Wales. It was wonderful and so much fun! Thanks, Grandma, for getting the tickets for us!

On Sunday afternoon, Adam had a violin concert. I hope to get a video up of that soon!
After the concert, we went out for dinner and to look at Christmas lights, but I was enjoying it so much that I forgot to take pictures.

The boys went to a friend's house one day and we had a super-fun girl's day. We went to the mall to pet the puppies (an all time favorite activity of ours), ate lunch at Chick-fil-a, and came home to watch Little Women.

My girls are so silly!

We got some great snow on Thursday.

Oh my Lil'! You always make me laugh.

Maple loves to play in the snow.

not so much.

Yana painted some Christmas gifts.

And Lily helped me bake.

We bought a great game called Wits and Wagers Family. It's wonderful because it's enjoyable for almost any age and so easy to learn.

We're looking forward to our church Christmas celebration tonight and family time tomorrow. Monday will be spent at Oma and Opa's house.

Merry Christmas, dear friends!
Christ is born!
Let us glorify Him!
