December Fun

December is always a busy and full month. This year I determined that we were NOT going to be too 'busy' to enjoy the season, and we pulled it off beautifully. There were still parties, seeing Santa, building gingerbread houses, getting together with friends, baking cookies and all that comes with preparing for Christmas. But this year there was no stress, lots of focus on Jesus and most of all....a really FUN season.

A few of the highlights included...

Skype dates with my mom (she even showed us her Charlie Brown Christmas tree!):Dress-up days full of cowboys and pirates:
Granddad stopping by to play cards with Bridget on the front porch:
Annual small town Christmas parade (they're the BEST!):
A quick family picture in the front yard before we left for a wedding:
A viewing of the Nutcracker, which the kids absolutely LOVED:
Piles of yard junk for Sam to burn:
And of course a visit with Santa. We got to see him at Bass Pro Shop (very cool!) and also at our local library. Fun times!
