Christmas may be my very most favorite time of the year...the much anticipated trip to the tree farm to cut down our tree followed by a family tree-trimming party, decking our house with Christmas decorations inside and sparkling lights outside, and all the cozy nights enjoying family time, creating memories and enjoying traditions. Well...being that we're entirely homeless this month (visiting our Nana and Papa before we make our way to Utah), all of our possessions are currently being stored in a trailer 1000 miles away, Aaron spent the past three weeks out of town (leaving the boys and I to make our own fun), and the flu bug has already circulated once...this hasn't been the most traditional of Christmases. Bound and determined to make this Christmas-time special, despite our unique circumstances, the boys and I have been busy all month long with Christmas festivities:
|What would Christmas be without baking? The boys got to help their Nana Grover make Christmas sugar cookies--good practice for our day 'o baking soon to come!|
|We cap off most nights with a little treat (brownie sundaes are the favorite) and a family game of Uno or Bingo.|
|We are soooo happy to have Daddy back home!|
- Carroling - Hank and Max LOVED going carroling!
- Christmas parties
- Polar Express Party with our best buddies....miss you guys already!
- Making snowflakes and painting homemade ornaments
- Service Project
- Reading Christmas stories every night before bed
- Watching Christmas movies - makes me laugh to hear the boys quote "Home Alone"
