Countdown to Christmas
The boys are so excited about Christmas! Liam made an advent calendar at school and is counting down. We have a lot of fun Christmas activities coming up in the next few weeks. We are hoping to take the kids to Dollywood this week. I love it at Christmas time. The lights are so pretty. Saturday, we are going to a local Christmas event for kids. They have crafts and cookie decorating for kids, pics with Santa, storytelling by Mrs Claus, horse drawn carriage rides and a secret santa room where elves help kids pick out inexpensive gifts for family members. The best part is it's all FREE! We look forward to it every year. The following week, our church is having caroling and cookies and then a Christmas cabaret the following Sunday. Add in, making lots of Christmas goodies with the boys and it will be a great time. It's nice to focus on happy things. Now, if we could just get some snow, it would be perfect!
