Life As We Know It... Christmas Edition

Here are some of the things we've been doing this Christmas season...

On December 2nd, Addy & I went to our Girl Scout
Christmas pajama party/service project.

Our troop decided that for their fall service project that they wanted to make Christmas ornaments & take up a collection of cookies & gift cards for the Amschwand Sarcoma Cancer Foundation.

So we combined that with our troop Christmas party.

At the party, the girls made super cool ornaments by 

melting crayons inside a glass ball.

And reindeer ornaments using glitter & mopping solution as the glue!
The girls made 2 of each, 1 to donate to the foundation & 1 to keep for themselves.

They also painted Christmas pictures and took photos in our 
homemade photo booth!

We asked each girl to bring a box of cookies & a gift card to the party to donate to the foundation. We collected about 50 boxes of cookies & 
almost $300 in gift cards.

Addy helped me box everything up & then I delivered it to the foundation.

The kids had their Christmas parties at school...

During Alex's party, they made shapes out of pipe cleaners & pony beads.

Alex made his into this heart for me!

They also decorated cookies & cut paper into 


During Addy's party, they played a marshmallow toss & catch game, made trail mix & painted Christmas ornaments.

And Nick & I also went to a Christmas party.

Not a school party though, just one that a friend was throwing 
& we had a great time!

The kids & I painted Santas.

I sketched them all out the same but boy did they all turn our really different!

We also made gingerbread houses

and Christmas trash

homemade hot chocolate & lots of other yummy Christmas treats that I didn't get a picture of.

And of course we spent a LOT of time decorating the house 
for the Christmas season!!
