What an amazing, busy, fun month December has been! The holidays have been full of memory making moments. Get ready for lots of pictures, but I had to do a brief catch up!
Eli’s 3rd birthday! He received drums, a microphone and an electric guitar:)
Christmas Craft Night with Nonnie! We had so much fun!
Mark was gone for two weeks for training in Orlando and when he came home we went to NC for the weekend to visit family and cut down our Christmas tree. This is the second year we have done that and we LOVE it! Although I think the boys liked the tiny bit of snow we saw and the mud much more than picking out a tree:) Notice how proud Mark looks and the boys are not excited about posing for the picture.
Here is our neat Christmas Garland. Thanks Robin for the idea!
Decorating the Christmas tree is my most favorite part of Christmas. I love, love, love hanging each ornament and telling the boys the memory behind each one. McCall loves it too:)
A Birthday Party for Jesus was one of our family nights with the Browns. Lots of fun and gave me a chance to try out this fun, new cake pan. I also made way too many Christmas cookies this year. Thanks again to Robin for the perfect sugar cookie frosting recipe! I so love making cookies!
We, of course, made a gingerbread house this year and I was amazed at how fun and non-stressful it was:)
We also had a Christmas Eve drop-in, drove around to see local Christmas lights (McCall fell asleep), went to see the Christmas lights at the zoo and bumped into our favorite friends the Bausmiths which was fun. We enjoyed a Christmas Newspring service which was awesome. We traveled to the upstate to visit with more family, spent a day in Charleston seeing my parents and the Pereas. Grandma Chapman spent the night with us Christmas Eve and it was such a blessing sharing Christmas morning with her.
The children were above board blessed by Santa and family this year. Oh I almost forgot! Our couch came in on the 23rd! I will include pictures soon because I have to say it made me such a happy camper:) We have had a tremendous Christmas.
We spent New Year’s Eve snuggled down at home. We celebrated old school and pulled out a Christmas present. Last night we played Disney Scene It which I highly recommend but tonight the boys and I broke in Lite Bright. I haven’t done that in about 20 plus years but I forgot how much fun it is! So it has been a great night! Happy New year everybody!
