Countdown to Christmas ~ ♥ Week 2 ♥

We are one week closer to Christmas! Oh my goodness how time is flying!!!
We've had another busy week ~ less crafts, more outings. Let's see if I can remember what we've been up to ;)
Saturday, December 5th
** Snowflake Necklaces **
I found the cutest kit at Wal-mart for making candy necklaces. Each packet contained edible candy beads and a snowflake candy to string on stretchy cord to create a necklace. The girls had such fun stringing the candy. {They also had fun eating it!}
Sunday, December 6th
♥ Decorating Nana and Grandpa's Tree & Chili Dinner ♥

I know I already shared this picture, but I love it so much I thought I'd share it again! :) That, and, somehow I managed to erase the remaining pics from our tree decorating/dinner at Nana and Grandpa's!

♥ Decorating Grandma and Grandpa's Tree ♥



Monday was a looooong day, but we couldn't skip out on decorating at Grandma and Grandpa's {Jeremy's parents}. The girls had fun hanging decorations. Kam had pretty much had it by that point in the evening {as evidenced by above picture}.

Tuesday, December 8th

♥ Hot Cocoa, Cookies, and Photos at Grandma's office ♥

This was so much fun! I'm so glad we braved icy cold temps to make it to Geri's office. The tree was the perfect backdrop for some Christmas pictures, and the girls gobbled down some cookies and slurped on some hot chocolate while we visited with Grandma. It was great!

Wednesday, December 9th

** Mini Christmas Tree Decorations **

This was a fun craft idea I found online at Kaboose

You need a styrofoam cone, green felt, glue, and rhinestones or other decorations. Just glue the felt to the cone and attach the embellishments. Voila!

Thursday, December 10th

** White Christmas Movie-Watching at Nana and Grandpa's **

Sierra's been wanting to watch this movie {a favorite of mine and my dad's} for awhile.

Kam found some cookies ;)


And afterward we enjoyed sparkling cider and lasagna! :)

Those felt trees look cute! The fancy glass for cider is so fun- my daughter loves it when I let her use "special" things for drinking or eating!
Thanks for sharing!

You are such a great mom! I love all the fun activities you've been up to...the extent of our Christmas fun was baking cookies yesterday...and possibly (if we decide to brave the frigid temperatures) going to see Santa later today!
