As is the case with most everyone this time of year, we are busy. Seems silly to even mention. But, I'll give you a little photo show of what we've been up to...
St. Nick came to visit.
He brought matching pjs and new ornaments...
We received a Jesse Tree this year. Guess who didn't even know what one was until this Advent season? Me.
We've been doing some crafting...decorating letters to be exact (cardboard c, p, j, and s). It went as you might expect it to go :). Quickly and messily.
But, we've had these guys picking up our spirits all season long thanks to Aunt Sammie. Sometimes they bring us juice. Other times, hot chocolate, but they're always welcomed with open arms (don't worry, Sophie has one, too).
Taking a little break to take care of some business.
And the next day, it saw a natural disaster of sorts.
John Paul had a tiny birthday party for his second birthday. And, aside from eating lots of candy candies (candy canes), blowing out candles was his favorite part!
Sophie turned six months old...and has gained a pound and grown an inch or two (17 lbs, 27 inches).
Look at all the boys on this side...
Peter's been a pretty good little Santa, chanting "ho ho ho!" all around.
And, I've dressed them in matching sweatshirts every few days (the same one). They'll thank me some day!
A sweet friend sent this to provide a little relaxing bathtime. She made it (it's not a cupcake you eat but one you put in the bathtub)!
I needed it. I guess that means that I haven't really done this Advent what I hoped to do (slow down). I'm embarrassed to say how many journal entries I've done. Don't ask!
I hope you've been full of blessings (be they peaceful or busy). Have a Merry Christmas!
