We have been up to a lot of Holiday Hoopla around here. We are having such a nice holiday.
I will fill you in:
We have been receiving lots of cards and packages. I love getting the mail at Christmas time. The other day I got this in the mail from my blog friend Stella. She lives in the Netherlands. She said it is custom to receive your initial in chocolate at the holidays. So she made sure that I got one. Isn’t that so sweet. Thank you Stella.
It snowed a little bit here one day. What a perfect Holiday surprise.
Tess and Isaac had a blast playing in it.
I decided we needed a dessert in honor of the snow that wasn’t deep enough to build a snowman. This was our Sunday night dessert.
We participated in Toy hill here in Arkansas. We donated some new toys and took them up to the drop off sight. The marines were loading all the toys in to a Pepsi truck.
The kids enjoyed picking out a toy for someone else, and then seeing them load the toys. It made it real for them. It helped them understand that there are children in Arkansas who are not as blessed as they are. After we gave the Marines our toys, we stayed and listened to the music and had some snacks. It was a nice day.
Jex had his Christmas program. It was adorable. All the third graders sang Christmas songs, and they also danced to some songs.
One of the songs they sang was Christmas Jubilation. It is the cutest song. One of those catchy tunes, that gets stuck in your head.
I have been working a lot the last few weeks. One of my favorite things is to design cards and announcements. I have been doing a little of that. I am giving you a sneak peak because I haven’t even shared these on my photo blog yet.
I just love Christmas cards.
I added a new ornament to our tree. It is in honor of baby Ruby.
It is a red bird. It says in Remembrance of Ruby June. It is in the center of my tree. I love it.
I hope you are enjoying all your holiday hoopla.
I hope your holiday is magical.
