WOAH is December a busy month!! Just looking at my calendar I wonder why I fill it so - but then I think - because I LOVE IT! I love being busy with fun! So here are a few things we have been doing this month already.
We made french puffs the other day for breakfast. From the Pioneer Woman's Cookbook, Tristan was my helper. Alyssa was helping too but she was doing dishes!
At the Parade last month we had free coupons for the kids to eat at the Old Country Buffet. So we called Uncle Joe and headed out for dinner. As you can see here - Tristan really was enjoying it all! Check out his plates!
My good friend Tamara gifted me these earrings and necklace. Thank you Tamara! They are beautiful!!! Hard to tell but they are green and blue. Match a TON of my outfits!
After church we made lunch then had a trail mix making time. Kids were able to put in whatever they wanted in theirs. They loved it.
the Family Man, Todd Wilson. This game is fun for ALL AGES and gets the family around the table. I think the "around the campfire" squares are the best. You pick a card and they get you talking. Some are questions, some tell you to do something. Last night we had to call Uncle Chris and sing him a Christmas Carol! We sang - Wyatt yelled. It was funny! Sorry Chris for hurting your ears!
I love December! Advent... we are doing our calendars, ripping links off our countdown chain and just enjoying the season. We are looking forward to caroling, gift making, parties and more. I love seeing snow but have been really happy to see warm temps this week. We have been outside playing every day! The kids have really been taking advantage of being outside! We know soon the bitter temps will keep us inside so we are spending as much as possible out in the 50 degree weather we have had! LOVE IT!
