More Christmas Fun!!

December 5th We were planning on going to the Christmas parade but they had to reschedule due to the weather. So instead, last minute, we sang Christmas songs on the Santa Tracker chanel(which is SUPER cool btw), popped popcorn, and watched Polar Express. Fun family night!

December 6th Haley had her Christmas choir concert so we went to watch her. They did so good! Poppy, Nana, Aunt Ashley, and Stella came to watch too! About half way through the concert one of the boys passed out and fell off the top risor. It was so scary. But he is ok!

December 7th  The kids opened a new book to read.

The Night Before Christmas! The kids really enjoyed it. 

December 8th We decorated a gingerbread house. It gets messy but the kids love it(ok ok maybe I do too)

I thought it turned out really cute!! :)

Christmas activities 2011

Advent Calendar

This year I thought it would be fun to do an advent calendar with fun activities for the kids.

Decemeber 1st we went to the Bryant Parade of Lights. It was a VERY short parade! We had fun though.

December 2nd Blake and Kate went to Target and each picked out a toy to drop off at Toys for Tots. Kate really didn't want to part with that Cinderella doll! lol

December 3rd we took the kids to the movies to see Arthur Christmas. It was a very cute movie. Blake really liked it. Kate got tired of it about half way through though.

Arthur Christmas 3D

December 4th we made hot chocolate and wrote letters to Santa.
we made cocoa stirers

Blake writing his letter

Kate writing "letters"

You can tell she was with daddy all day-look at that hair!

Can't wait to mail them!!
