Merry Christmas Eve

We've been busy having fun around here.  The girls had their party at school and I finally got some presents wrapped under the tree.  Not all of them...but it's a start.  Our elf, Ethan, has been making the rounds around the house.  He hasn't been naughty this year, but I have big plans for next year!

A mom passed these Rudolph noses out to play a game.  Wesleigh immediately stuck it on her nose.  So funny!

I baked cookies with the girls yesterday.  We cheated and did slice and bake and used a Christmas baking sheet instead of using the cookie cutters.  I just didn't have it in me.  They had an absolute blast!  We started mixing the cookies and after just the flour was in the bowl, they were having such a good time playing around with that flour that I just started snapping pictures.  They got it everywhere and thought they were big stuff.  My mom showed up at just the right time to get in on the action.  After they played for a while, I just dumped what was left of that flour and we started over.  I will definitely use that trick again!!

This might be my favorite picture of the day.  Wesleigh is just cracking up over how messy the flour is.  So funny!!

Goodness, I am having a hard time getting my comments to stick. I am so glad to see these photos. I was worried that I didn't get the leggings to you in time for the girls to wear them. Merry Christmas friend! God Bless.
