I am really starting to love the month of December again, and watching the looks on my girls faces, yes they are 12 and no they don't believe in Santa anymore, but they still believe in the magic and that is what really matters. I want them to always believe in something that they can't see, it keeps the soul happy.
Oh the fun that came, the first weekend we had a change of plans
but that is the way of the world and we went with it.
Thankfully the girls thought it was fun.
We ended up spending Day 6 at the Festival of the Trees, and
hanging out at home, which was great! So Sunday we went and got
a tree as a family and had some friends join us, it was a great day!
Most of you know my girls are a little rugged and they love
love football, so today was a treat day. A small surprise and they loved it.
I would like everyone to know sending cards to soldiers is not as easy as one
would think it should be. We wrote in some cards that we got at the dollar store,
sweet message of Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Thank you! And a friend
is delivering them to vets out at the fort for us. Thank Goodness.
Giving money to the Red Kettles is much easier, and the girls love doing it.
Wal-mart and Van's were our stops, even a little helps those in need.
Toys for Tots is a great program and the girls love giving toys.
Thankfully there is a box at Pacific so we are dropping ours in there and visiting family.
We love decorating gingerbread things this time of year, and this just happens to fall
the night before the girls get a sleepover at Uncle Wes' house where
they are decorating a gingerbread house. All Aboard!!
I hope you are all discovering a little extra magic this time of year and
celebrating the spirit that is Christmas!
