Family Vacation (Day 2)

Today we went swimming.....swimming on Christmas Eve!! We made cookies and decorated them to leave them all out for Santa he them all and only left crumbs! Before bed we put out our reindeer feed so Santa could find our house. We had a busy, but fun day!

Family Vacation by Emmah (Day 1)

On the 1st day of vacation we rode on the airplane! Jake got to ride on the airplane with Mommy and Mimi. Jake was excited to ride the airplane! I rode the airplane with Dad. I liked to color on the airplane. Take off was my favorite!!

Mom here, they were so funny! They had an absolute blast and when we got close they thought it was fun they could see the houses below. Jake was a little restless.....goodthing we didn't drive!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Our schedule lately has been nuts! Trying to get all those last minute things done are ready before we head on vacation. Tonight we crossed something very large off our list.....we went to visit Santa!

It was very fun, and the kids enjoyed it, although Jake wasn't so sure at first! He has changed his list so many times, I hope that Santa gets him the right gifts this year! Good luck Santa! Emmah on the otherhand has stuck to her top two things that she wants, matching American Girl doll pajamas and a Hello Kitty camera (Santa may have gotten her a camera, but it isn't Hello Kitty, it had terrible reviews!)

Snowed In

Well, the last 2 days here have been snow days.....I feel like yesterday we were just practicing and today is the REAL thing. They predicted horrible weather to start around noon yesterday, let's just say by 10ish at night we started to see some snow! Oh well, we did get some much needed things done and enjoyed a family movie.

I have a new favorite, albeit a tear jerker in parts, UP! It was really cute, and the kids liked it too! We made a few stops and got some Christmas shopping done, although not all we were hoping for and even got some groceries to bake and keep stocked up. I do feel pretty accomplished after the two days, I finished up some block orders, printed some labels for shipping, baked (Yes, I said baked!), did some laundry (I figure if I keep caught up maybe it won't be so bad when we get back from vacation....fat chance!), did the dishes and had fun with some play-doh with the kids!

The kids are loving it, and for being locked up pretty much for 2 days are not fighting...I think I just jinxed myself......and are having fun with each other. Later we will do some Christmas cookies, but not as many as usual. Just some sugar cookies we can leave out for Santa in case he leaves some presents here....better safe then sorry!
