Days 341-350

Lucy had been sick, mostly a bad cough and fever, but she felt good enough to be an artist for a bit!

Our resident Elf of a Shelf, Sam received a Christmas card from Kate. Love how she put it on the window so he could see it.

Kate has been visiting different countries each day in school and learning about their holiday traditions. She came off the bus with this candle wreath hat from Sweden. They get to have passports stamped at school for each country they "visit".

Our mantel and my two favorite decorations.

Lucy washing her hands, love how her foot is tucked back behind the other.

Kate graduated to her brown belt! She's doing soo great!

We had lunch with Santa and what a fabulous looking Santa he was! It was fun.

My MIL bought the girls this playmobil advent calendar. It has a woodland animal theme. Each day they open a door and get a piece of the scene. They love it!

I took this pic of our tree with tips from, I used a tripod and love how it came out, I always wanted to do this!

Holiday baking fun! Rolling... and

Frosting... or licking the frosting... lol!
