Just a Few Things.........................

We've Been Up To, So Far This Month.


I've been trying to take pictures of  toddlers!

I've been hand-making teacher gifts!

 I found instructions here.

We attended a fun little parade that was JUST outside our subdivision. We left the house 10 minutes before it started, parked the car, and grabbed a perfect piece of curb just in time for the parade to start!
 The kids said it was better than Halloween because all they had to do was sit their and people brought candy to them. One group was even handing out stuffed animals!

I've been forcing the kids to watch Holiday movies. I used to LOVE watching all the Christmas movies but they just whine, "We've already seen this!"

looks like fun! I am glad Adlie cant tell me she has already seen the movies we have been watching! We have watched White Christmas 5 times already and I hope she is like me and can watch it a million more times! It isn't Christmas in our family until Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye sing White Christmas!

Love the gifts you are making!! Gorgeous. Your tree is also beautiful. I wish we could have a real one again. What is it with kids not wanting to watch the Christmas movies anymore? I make Blaze watch them too but he is pretty ok with it.

Buddy's not a fan of the Christmas movies either, but Buster is, so that always starts a fight. *sigh*

Look at those homemade gifts!

Now that does sound like a good parade. I asked Alex if she wanted to watch a Christmas movie, she chose Diego.

My kids are the same way with the holiday movies?! I ask them which one we should watch next and they get all whiney saying we've already watched them all...I just figure that is their way of letting me know it is my turn to pick! ;-)

Jakob doesn't care for the Christmas movies either, but Nolan loves them. Thank goodness!

A parade in December seems odd to me but getting stuffed animals is awesome.

LOL @ that last picture and trying to imagine them whining about being forced to watch tv!

Us? We're having our annual ELF night soon :)

I love Christmas parades! I mean, except when *I* have to freeze my butt off by being in one of them without a warm outfit. Will never forget having to sit there and wave my pageant wave and smile my frozen faced pageant smile - all while little girls ran toward me screaming, "It's SNOW WHITE!!!"

ha ha. Merriest Christmas my friend!

There you go hand making stuff again making me feel so uncrafty! Geesh.
ps...I love Christmas movies and music :o)

Okay, just went and looked at the how to on the gift. So cool. I have those organizers at my house and I use them for vitamins :o)
I'll have to do this for her teachers - maybe end of the year or something. Very creative.

I am just catching up! I wish I could say I have been as busy:). Looks like you had lots of pre-holiday fun!
