I can't believe how long it has been since I posted last!
I can believe that I have been having an awesome week with my kiddos so far!
A busy end to school. . .and now it is a lot of playing. No sleeping in for me, but I can't ask for too much, right?
Last night the kids got a surprise visit from Santa! Yep, Santa came right to our door! Along with two firetrucks and a bunch of firemen on their way to the hospital to spread some Christmas cheer there. It was a nice pre-visit for my kids--their eyes were HUGE as they looked at a "real" Santa that close!-- and they each got a stuffy from Santa as well.
The kids have been busy making cards. . .here is one E had for a teacher/helper at his school. "Real Christmas cards are just kinda boring, unless they have glitter"--according to him.
Crazy me always have my kiddos help me make cards of some kind. I started this when E was 3, I think. They love it, but I am crazy for doing it! This year we made cards using recycled materials (cards, paper, left-over craft materials, etc.) We didn't get very far. . .I think we only made 19. And I also haven't sent too many off yet. . .too busy!
But never too busy for. . .
A hot chocolate break!
The Christmas picture we finally settled on. . .after all the other failures! But then, who knows if anyone will see it as the Christmas cards are not being used so much yet.
More Christmas crafts/ornaments that need to be made. . .
Yep, one craft a day is how it has been going down at our house. In addition to the other "creative messes" we have going on, of course.
And to close this overdue post. . .
This is the first picture with Santa the kids have ever had. We finally decided that this year Santa wasn't so scary! (Although, from the photo, I can't tell that Princess A is convinced. She did find him later so she could give him a hug!)
Blessings to you during this holiday season!
