Welcome to Week 3 of Countdown to Christmas! Not quite sure how a whole week passed before my very eyes, but ohhhkay.
Here's a brief recap of our week:
Last Thursday we made hair clips for gifting. That was the idea, anyway. Kenners was pretty happy with the one she made, and she decided she wanted to keep it for herself. The one below Sierra made for her cousin.
Saturday we were supposed to attend a Follow the Star event, but the weather was HORRIBLE. Flooding, cold, and pouring down rain, we decided we didn't want to hang out in it for any length of time, no matter how cool the live nativity was. Sooooo, instead we invited Nana and Grandma over to bake cookies. We made a LOT of them! Oatmeal, Gingersnap, Jam Thumbprint, and Sugar . . . just to name a few.
Sunday we helped Grandma and Grandpa decorate their tree, and afterward Jeremy took Sierra and Makenna to see The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The following photos crack me up. Jeremy was Sierra's "lifter" and Grandpa was Makenna's.
A little friendly competition ensued.
Look how high I can hang my ornament!
Woohoo! Mine's the highest!
Oh yeah? Top this!
Alright, how about tree topper?!
All the while Daddy and Grandpa were commanded to "lift higher!"
And a few photos by the tree
Mostly just slurpin' on Flurries
