Countdown to Christmas ~ Week 1

Whew! We've had a busy first week of December, how about you?

December 1st started off with a North Pole Breakfast.

December 2nd we got our tree!!!!

December 3rd was a little hectic, as I had already scheduled a photo session out of town, and had errands to run before Jeremy and I headed off to an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party.  So the girls' activity that day was Movie Night with Nana and Gramps.

December 4th we hurried home right after Church because Mama was goin' on day 3 of a migraine. Bleh.  We still managed a quick craft.

December 5th we had hoped to wake up to snow, as was forecast. We were a little disappointed at first . . . until it started snowing later that morning.  And continued the rest of the day!! We made these adorable little paper houses while watching the snow fall outside.  It would have been the best day ever had our dog, Kate, not gotten sick.  A short stay at the vet, and overnight in the house snuggled up to us seemed to work magic!  She's feeling much better now.

December 6th we got to see friends we hadn't visited in ETERNITY, and decorate sugar cookies to boot!

Today is another busy one, with a photo shoot at the home studio this morning, followed by the big girls volunteering at the preschool.  But the goal is to snuggle together and read some Christmas stories as well.

What have you been up to???

So sorry about your dog! I'm glad she's better though.

Here's what we did for the countdown:

Dec. 1- Light up Christmas necklaces for Branson
Dec. 2- Light up Christmas window gel clings
Dec. 3- Chrismas Pez dispenser
Dec. 4- Reese's Christmas Tree
Dec. 5- Watched a few Christmas movies
Dec. 6- A Reese's miniature
Dec. 7- A coloring page with the names of Jesus and bible verses.

However, we did not get to the coloring page today. My Dad came over and fell getting into the house! He has bad knees and has trouble sometimes. He fell back onto the sidewalk. Luckily, his tailbone hit first, then his shoulder, then head. By the grace of GOD he is ok. I called 911 and they took him by ambulance. All of his scans and x-rays were fine. He'll just be in a LOT of pain for several days. I'm pretty sure my Dad is a cat. Actually, he's had more than 9 lives. LOL!
