decorating our tree actually occurs on thanksgiving day while we watch the macy's thanksgiving day parade, but here are a few pictures anyway . . .
breakfast with santa . . . we were planning to attend breakfast with santa as a family until i was stricken with the first bout of strep throat. (yes, i said first. i had strep throat twice in december. it definitely altered my original plans for the season. oh well.)
the easter egg hunt. he even put himself in this photo rather than miss out on this classic memory.
writing letters to santa . . .
and, miller made sure to tell santa that was what he wanted at each visit. i hope santa was listening!
zoo lights with friends . . .
painting coffee mugs for family gifts . . .
snowman doughnuts for breakfast . . .
making graham cracker gingerbread houses . . .
the enchanted forest . . .
and lots and lots of crafts . . .
we made glitter bells and stacking trees and cardboard trees. we used mostly recycled items to make our crafts. next year, i will have to start earlier. and, i would love to tie more of the crafts in with our books. maybe next year i will be more organized . . . maybe ;)
