 For the month of December, Caleb decided to "plan" out the month and do something Christmassy each night.  Our calendar has consisted of Christmas movie nights, game nights, plays, symphony, decorating, shopping for gifts, gingerbread houses, and so much more.  We are half way through the month and here are a few pics from our evenings.

At the first of the month, we decorated our home with all the Christmas decor.

This nativity was from my grandparents and it brings back great memories every year we put it up.

The kids with their favorite ornament

The 3 of them were just all sitting around the ornaments talking about each one and the memories they had.  It was pretty cute.

Trenton was very particular about where each ornament was hung.

Gavin kept getting irritated because his ornaments would fall off.

While decorating, we enjoyed some egg nog.  Addison enjoyed it a little too much.  It ended up all over her face and she loved it!

At the first of December the grandkids did gingerbread houses with my mom.  We had purchased a kit from Costco and so we did a family gingerbread house later that week. 

Addison helped by eating, and eating, and eating.

Gavin showed her how!

Trenton and Dad were the engineers and did a great job assembling everything.  They both were very precise!

We did suffer one casuality.  The poor gingerbread men were attacked by the big bad Addison.

The finished product.

Snow Day!!!

Oh what do you do on a snow day, when all the grass is white? Do you put on a coat, do you put on a scarf, or do you play in it all day? That is the song we made up when playing in the snow. This is what we did on our snow day!

We sat and watched a movie, took naps, built a snowman, made a slide, attempted to build a fort, and then finished our day with some hot chocolate. We didn't clean, do dishes, fold laundry, or anything else that should have been accomplished on a day off. It was the best day ever!
