It was a great Christmas break this year and I was sad for it to be over. We had some great weather and enjoyed lots of fun things together.
This is called safety campfire, we build the fire inside the pool fence and I keep Chloe outside of it. A much safer and fun time for all.
Sugar cookies and watching a Christmas carol on Christmas eve. We also went to look at the temple lights which was a bit stressful for me. I may have been raised with the slight fear that someone could break in and steal all your presents if you left your house unattended on Christmas Eve. Thank goodness for high tech security systems, the gifts were all still here when we got back.
This one is a little goofball. I do fix her hair everyday. Several times a day. She delights in her wildness though and usually wins.
Christmas day was fun. The kids were delighted about all the gifts as well as the ones they had picked out for each other at the dollar store. I was proud of Belle because she was one classy gal. She really wanted an American Girl Doll from Santa but didn’t get one. She told me she was disappointed a little but happy with her other things and didn’t pout at all. Luckily she has quite the grandma and there happened to be a Molly American Girl doll all wrapped up under the tree that she opened a little while later. She was one happy gal.
The next day we got 4 chickens! They have been a hoot and the kids are quite the farmers. Hopefully we still have four tomorrow morning though because I waited a little long to put them in their coop tonight and 3 had already roosted in a tree. They have been fun though, maybe I will post more about them later.
