Advent 2012

December 22 - The girls and I made snowflake tortillas for an after dinner treat.  They declared it a pajama day as you can tell and that resulted in a crazy hair day for Pumpkin.

December 23 - After we put the girls to bed, we surprised them by going back upstairs and yelling "All aboard," complete with Daddy's train sound effects. We did our own Polar Express. We loaded them in the van with blankets and their tickets for the Polar Express. They found snacks, hot cocoa, and the movie all waiting for them.

We drove around trying to find some great Christmas lights displays. We hit the jack-pot with a house that had 47 blow-up Christmas thingamajigs. The girls thought it was amazing!

When we got back home, the girls got to camp up by the Christmas tree for the night.

December 24 - We went out for supper with some sweet friends at a local Indian restaurant before heading to our church's Christmas Eve service. This is my dear friend. We are getting to know her and her family much better. They are such sweet, wonderful friends and our kids love to play together. Win, Win! IMG_1160
After church we headed home where the girls got to open their first presents...new pajamas! IMG_1167
We celebrated the birth of Jesus by having a birthday cake together. IMG_1187
This brings us to Christmas Day! We have done so many fun and wonderful things together this month. That is what it is all about for me. I just want to create fun memories for my kiddos! I think we did just that.
