Do a reenactment of the Nativity
See what St. Nick brought the crowd
Grandma had all sorts of yummy things for making cookies and Grandpa got goofy with the frosting!
Thanks G'ma and G'pa! You guys are the best!
On the 11th Day of Christmas, we went to see the Jolly Ol' One
We waited for 2 patient hours, catching a glimpse when we could
of the Big Guy!
Exhibit A: J happily playing just moments before being plucked up and plopped on St. Nick's lap
Exhibit B: What is it about the Fellow in Red that makes the wee ones weep like babies?
Good thing Mom is so brave!

On the 8th Day of Christmas, we delivered our treats.
We were supposed to go visit Santa, but due to Santa's scheduled breaks, and Mom and Dad's other list of obligations, we only saw Santa from a distance, but we will return
Sunday was the 9th Day, so we learned more about the Reason for the Season!
We watched Luke II, did a kind deed, talked about how Jesus is the Light of the World, and then went to see the lights, on what we call affectionately, "Christmas Street". Its a street of houses that all work together to put up tons of lights, with a sign in every yard reading a section of "Twas the Night Before Christmas". Check out some of these houses!

On the third day we went to Grandma's and made suncatcher ornaments
On the fourth day of Christmas we worked with some Christmas trees
On the Fifth day of Christmas we made cookies!
Today was the 7th day and we gave to others. We gathered our old coats, gloves, hats, etc. and donated them towards a homeless shelter, then we made treats to give the neighbors.
