Well, it's gone now but I still can't get that darn chipmunk song out of my head!
Here's a look at our December fun!
Decorating the house!
We let the kids help decorate the tree then during naptime I re-did the whole thing. They didn't notice ;)
Garrison St Christmas lights in Pt Loma
(our Christmas Card)
We were given free tickets to Lego Land(thank you Delana from 94.1). We had never been and even though it was super cold out, the kids really liked it!
This year I wanted to try some homemade gifts. So friends and family got Homemade BBQ sauce and Sugar bath scrubs.
We were surprised with Christmas carolers on Christmas Morning!
My parents, Aunt Debi and Grandpa Walt all came into town.
We all started getting sick the day before they came so they were dodging coughs and sneezes the whole visit. We made Tamales and they turned out really good!
and ofcourse the kids got some great presents.
Maggie finally got a pink bike so she can keep up with her brothers. This was the only present she had asked for and every box or bag she opened she had a look of dissapointment. When she finally saw it she LOVED it!
Job helped Papa read the Christmas story on Christmas Eve using our little people set.
He was so serious! It's so much fun now that they are getting older and they are understanding more and more of why we celebrate Christmas. It's not about a jolly old man who squeezes down a chimney. Even though they know about the Santa stuff and love the Rudolph songs, It's about Jesus! We taught them about the real
St. Nick and the backround for Santa. We are not robbing our kids of their childhood by telling them that Santa is not real, we are re-assuring them of real living God who they can put their trust and hope in. He will always be the reason for the season!
