Melting Snow Men and a Christmas Tree…

Yay!! Christmas is finally here! It’s been a fun few weeks of December getting ready for the most wonderful time of the year. With the ages of the kids, this year has been pretty fun thinking about and looking forward to. And of course, we love remembering why we celebrate Christmas in the first place: celebrating the birth of Jesus. For the last few weeks, Jen has been leading the girls through a craft/story time about advent, and the girls have been learning a lot. If you want to see some pics from that (and read some really awesome stuff from my wife) check out her blog. Today though, has been fun. We really haven’t done anything special (in fact, even a trip to the swimming pool was cancelled because they closed earlier than we expected! yikes!) but we’ve been having a lot of fun together. This morning was the first project: Jen did something with the girls that she found last Christmas but didn’t have the chance to do. They all made melting snowmen cookies! I know…you’re thinking, WHAT??? But, as you’ll see, they’re pretty creative, and the girls had lots of fun. So far, it’s been fun. Now, I’m off to start cooking the Mexican food (the cuisine of choice in my family on Christmas eve…) then we’ll watch a movie together, and get tucked into bed to wait for Christmas morning! Now….the pics of the snowman (and a throw in one I took of our tree!)
