December Happenings!

We had so many fun things going on this December.  I thought I'd make things easier on myself and put all the random ones together in one fun post!

My parent's gift to us this year was really fun!  They decided to do an advent gift giving.  They mailed it all out ahead of time and each Sunday of December before Christmas, we got to open a present.  Needless to say, the kids loved this. 

The first night we got popcorn, the movie The Santa Clause.  We had fun watching together as a family.

Elise opened a book, Christmas ABC's and some darling hot cocoa mugs from Crate and Barrel.  

Opening a book, This is the Stable and James opening the nativity Christmas ornament we got.  Thanks again Mom and Dad. This was so fun!

Elise had a Christmas sing a long at her school.  It was so fun to go and watch her perform!  Their class sang Jingle Bells.  Here she is all ready for her performance.

Here is Elise with her class and the K4 classes on stage.

Elise also got to bring in a birthday treat for her class the last day before break!  We made lemon cupcakes with pink frosting!  She had fun getting to wear the birthday crown!

Fred and Kathy took us to another fish fry downtown at Lake Front Brewery.  This is always so fun and we look forward to it every year.
 James showing us his moves on the dance floor.  
 The kids love the polka band and the bubble machine!

We also made gingerbread houses!!  I have bought things to make these the past two years and we never get around to it- so I was very excited we actually made it happen this year!

 Hard at work!

 James' contribution to the house was eating all the candy!
 Elise showing off our awesome gingerbread house!  It was her idea to put the wings on the house.
The finished product!
