Happy Holidays!

Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas!  

December has been a whirl wind of a month!  From getting the flu... which put us down for a week to getting ready to the holidays!  I don't know about you but I"m ready for a weekend of nothing to do!  

Here's a peek at what we've been up to this month .... 

We hung our stockings with care .... 

We adopted a tree at the local park for Lilly's Daisy Troop - we made bird seed ornaments 

Made Gingerbread house- a school project. I went to school to help Lilly out ... They used milk cartons as the house so you just frosted the graham crackers on the house! Genius if you ask me... and the house has yet to collapse!! ;) 

In getting ready for Santa's big arrival ..... We made our reindeer food.  This year we made a carrot wreath for the reindeer .... And they took it!!!  {insert major excitement from a 6 year old when it was gone this morning!!) 

Linus - thanks for visiting us for Christmas #3 - Lilly is looking forward to you returning next year!  Here is Linus in his last spot this season and with a letter in hand from Lilly. The letter says Merry Christmas Linus - safe trip back!  I love the magic of Christmas!! 

We left Santa sugar cookies and this year she wanted to leave Hot Chocolate.  ... Look he wrote us a note back on my chalk board! 

Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 

I will be enjoying the next week with family and will be back with new things next year!
