Christmas Memories, yesterday & today



Our Christmas books last night were Jan Brett's The Night Before Christmas, Pooh's Christmas Days, On Christmas Eve by Margaret Wise Brown and The 12 Days of Christmas a pop-up book by Richard Sabuda.

The swingset was also completed earlier in the day.  The kids are having a blast!


  We made a Gingerbread tree (yes, it was from a kit).                                                                                    



We also finally made it to Michaels tonight for the few items I was missing.  At least I hope that was all I was missing!

These are the books we read tonight, The Legend of the Christmas Stocking by Rick Osborne, Jan Brett's Gingerbread Baby and The Night Before Christmas a pop-up book by Robert Sabuda.

(Robert Sabuda's books are beautiful works of art.  If you haven't seen his books before they are worth looking at.)

We only read three books tonight because it was late when we got home and S. fell asleep during our Advent readings so he didn't get a chance to pick a book out of the bin.

Tomorrow we're going to make these ornaments.  We're going to make one for the girls piano teacher and put sheet music inside.  We'll see how well it goes to determine if I actually give it to him on Thursday!
