25 Days of Christmas 1-5

As I said in my last post, we started a new tradition this year. I made 25 little envelopes, each with a new activity for the day, and hung them on a ribbon to count down to Christmas. So far it has been a LOT of fun! Here are some pictures of this past week's activities:

Day 1 - make paper snowflakes

Day 2 - Festival of Trees

Day 3 - Paint everyone's toenails (we just painted the kids' toes. I was too pooped by the end of the day!)

Day 4 - Bake Cookies!
Chocolate Chip :)

Day 5 - Letters to Santa
Grace went to sleep for this one. Carson and I cut out pictures of toys that he wants and then we pasted them on a piece of paper. He dictated and I wrote "Dear Santa, Bring me a Nerf Blaster. I have been good to you Santa. I want a Nerf Blaster. Love, Carson"

Tonight is movie, popcorn and eggnog night!

December is looking to be a great month!
