This is such a late and long-overdue post….I was making a Hawaii scrapbook through Shutterfly for the past two months (they’ve stopped napping, so I don’t get a lot of time to do…anything). I had a free offer from Pampers, so there was an actual deadline, thank goodness! It finally arrived yesterday and is exactly what I had hoped! Anyway, here are some Christmas doings:
Face Painting (first time!) at MOPS playgroup. They sat very still but smiled for me in between brush strokes.
Making a really neat project: luminaries (first time using glue sticks) at the community holiday party, and Caroling with neighbors.
Here are some Christmas traditions that we’ve settled on:
Buying clothes and toys and packing a bag for the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree. I picked a 2-year old boy to make it more relate-able for T&T.
Reading the Christmas story over brunch
A few stocking stuffers on Christmas morning
(what was in the stockings) We won’t miss a thing with these binoculars and headlamps!
Baby Jesus makes it to the world on Christmas morning!
Making Jesus a “Happy Birthday cake” and singing to him (the apple cake had so little sugar that it was more like apple bread…fooled everyone!)
Winter Lights! This year we did the drive-through one at Seneca Creek State Park.
Looking at the lights from under the tree like Daddy always did growing up 🙂
Family PJs, this year with the Hawaii vacation theme of sea turtles and snorkeling. That’s right, Mommy did not get camo PJ pants for herself. And yes (take a closer look at Mommy’s shirt), we’re expecting #3! This picture was taken a month after Christmas; had to wait until the baby bump started to show.
