Merry Christmas! A little late, yes, but that’s just where I am right now. I still want to wish you a merry Christmas! I actually like it when I get Christmas cards in the mail after Christmas. It helps me to know that I’m not the only one who doesn’t have it all together and it makes the Christmas season last longer! Here are some pictures of Christmas around our house.
Gabe and Daddy made this gingerbread house at school. The top of an orange carton is in there as a base.
Gingerbread cookies and silly faces. Find the gingerbread snowman named “Mr. Bones.”
Our Christmas tree.
Lots of hang out and play time. Lots of PJ time, too. I loved this idea from Small Notebook to put Christmas books under the tree leading up to Christmas. I love getting Christmas books from the library.
Simple centerpiece with pine cones the kids collected while on a walk.
Making Daddy’s favorite Christmas cookie: Cranberry Cookies.
Making sugar cookies! We still haven’t decorated these, but I’m not giving up hope that it will happen this week.
Miss Anna turned 2! How does that happen? She’s trying to make her fingers show “2″ here…
I dug out a few things to make the table special.
Real fun. Real life. Real mess. Really need to clean this up!
Our celebration isn’t done yet. We’ll be celebrating Christmas with extended family on Sunday. More fun, more mess, but not at my house! I’m looking forward to more family time and traditions like my dad reading the Christmas story from the Bible.
We will also celebrate my grandfather’s 98th birthday! He still drives himself to the gym 5 days a week. He’s a blessing to us in many ways.
