December fun

We have had a fun December full of Christmas activities! I feel like this is the first year where I didn't try to cram in every little Christmas activity. We didn't get around to doing some things, and I am totally okay with that. I am learning that quality is really better than quantity!
We are at such fun ages this year. I know that Cheney was here last Christmas, but I really feel like this her first REAL Christmas. She is obsessed with the big Christmas tree this year. The first week it was up she would walk into the foyer, her eyes would get big, and she would yell "WHOA!" I love experiencing everything through their eyes...it is so magical!

We have the best library right in our neighborhood. It's beautiful and always has fun activities going on! Earlier in the month they had a magician there performing & we got to see Santa! Cheney is very unsure about new men in general, but the guy with a big fluffy beard really bothered her! I love a good crying Santa picture!
I have waited 5 years for this...but I am happy to say that I finally have kids that love to do crafty things!! Our big kitchen windows are full of cute Christmas things made by the boys. I love it!
One of my favorite things about Christmas is matching Christmas jammies! Luckily, G still thinks it is cool to match his little brother and sister. I am sure that will end soon, so I had to live it up this year!
We have had some crazy weather this month. Thunderstorms and tornadoes last night...yikes! It has been so warm outside and we have loved being able to play in the cul-de-sac.
 Our afternoons consist of picking up sticks, riding scooters, playing hide and seek outside, and exploring the backyard. I am a big fan of a warmer December!
This year our preschool did something new! One Sunday afternoon we had a Journey to Bethlehem. We had different rooms that the preschoolers got to walk through & they learned all about the birth of Jesus. It was so fun! I love that our preschool is so focused on the Lord...our kids get to hear about Jesus all day! The boys are still singing the songs from that day. They enjoyed it!
I also got to spend time with Grayson at his Gingerbread Party at school! He ended up covered in icing and sneaking lots of marshmallows and candy!
I love making Christmas memories with these kids. When you are little, being a kid on Christmas is THE BEST.  It's so much more fun though as a mama. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!!
