Christmas Prep

I'm going to just give you short updates - lots to do around here :)
We had a snow day!  And the boys loved playing in the snow -but it was gross and wet, so they didn't last long...
 Hot cocoa and gingerbread houses made it better......
 We found the advent calendar my grandpa made - Lucas was obsessed - checking it every few minutes to see if it changed....
 Lucas is so into traditions - and loved decorating the tree...
 He was very proud of his work - and it looks fabulous!
 Grammy, Grandpa, Angie, Cole, and Cooper arrived and the fun began!  Gingerbread houses are a big tradition around here!
 I shared with Lucas - which means I took over....
 Ethan made his into a hobbit house - and put ear muffs onto Gandalf because it's cold there...  

 All three were cute - and make a cute little village.
 Another Sunday, another Christmas program....  Joseph and the Shepherd were adorable.
 It was adorable - My favorite part was when Lucas kept poking Baby Jesus- which was a pillow.  He even picked it up at one point....
 We had a nice happy hour back at the house - lots of love and laughs!
 Today was cookie baking day after a whole lot of shopping!
 Complete with Ninjabread cookies!
 Christmas lights, church, and then time for Christmas jammies!
We tried for pictures, but that was difficult...
 Lucas got to open up his gift from his brother - an angry birds trash can!! And he loved it!
 Ethan opened up the Wimpy Kid book series - which apparently was all he wanted, so we're good!
 We ended the night by building a reindeer landing strip on the back porch - and sprinkling reindeer food all over the porch (hope it blows away before the oatmeal soaks up any rain!)
 Cookies for Santa, and we're all set to go!  
Merry Christmas Eve everyone!
