12/02 - Weekend fun: It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas edition

Last weekend, we started getting ready for Christmas.  First, we picked out a tree.  Then, we had cookies and eggnog and decorated it.
The next morning, we put the ingredients for homemade soup in the slow cooker. I also made my famous Mommy Bread.  Between that and the Christmas tree, the house smelled delicious all day!
After that, we got all gussied up and went to see Santa.  Lil' Guy stepped right up and charmed Santa.
Lil' Gal has always been shy, but this year, we had a Plan B.  A letter!  Santa was very touched and thought she did a great job drawing him and Rudolph.  She was SO proud.  And when he asked for a hug, she gave him a big one!  (I was on the other side, and her face was beaming.  So cute!!)
My attempts at getting a holiday card photo were not as successful as I'd like, but I'll keep trying...


  1. I think that is a perfect holiday card photo.

    1. I kinda like it too, but I think the grandparents might prefer a more traditional smile...
