One nice, one naughty and one super chill dog. Merry Christmas, everyone!
It is our final weekend before Christmas celebrations and we are busy little elves cleaning and organizing! We’re happy to see everyone next weekend and the kids are very excited. This week sees us finalizing things for the feast as we grocery shop (mmm, prime rib) and prepare!
See you all this weekend!
We used half a container of sprinkles….because children were in charge! The cookies were fun and we’re looking forward to our next batch. Natalie has been busy reading through our holiday cookbook so that she and Conrad can make their cookie list.
We have a free weekend coming up and we’re very excited about it! Natalie still has piano and James is seeing his doctor (just a checkup), but other than that we are wide open. It’s awesome! Especially since James still has work every evening after he gets home…..it’s important to have a little break now and then. We’re looking forward to some family time and getting some things finished up. Christmas is fast approaching!
…..starring the Park kids! Today’s cookie choice is sugar cookies (to be frosted after dinner):
Conrad added all the wet ingredients and Natalie added all the dry ingredients and I mixed up the dough. Since we have lots more batches to go this season, I let these two do it all on their own. They are rocking it! Stay tuned for the finished product.
I didn’t write a follow up yet, but Nat’s recital was amazing! Most of us were there anyways, so I didn’t feel the need to hurry up and post the video (I can’t for some reason anyways, so we’ll wait for James). In other news, she’s also been chosen for the district’s spring art show again! This Saturday, we’ll wander over to the library and find her masterpiece and post some photos of the artiste!
It’s quite windy and some stuff blew over, so I’ll be fixing that today. I’ve been putting away projects and clearing things off and washing and straightening the house. This will help get the projects back off the ground after the holidays are over! It’s much better to start from a clean space, than work around clutter. Bonus: it creates space for the new toys and new things!
Making Christmas cards was making me feel tired, so that’s off the table this year. Maybe we’ll start an every other year thing! Or maybe i’ll have a burst of card making energy and get it all squared away…..we’ll see.
