We have been busy decorating the tree...
and putting other decorations out around the house.
Ellie had her Christmas program at Friendship School. (She mainly played with her shoes & flirted with the twin boys who were sitting on either side of her.)
The girls started their "12 Days of Christmas tradition" that their daddy started a few years ago. Each day leading up to Christmas, 12 days out, they get to open a small gift from their daddy. Day 1 was flashlights, Day 2 was some art things, and Day 3 was a individual package of cookies.
We had Cookies 'n Milk with Santa at church, where gingerbread houses were created, cookies were eaten, and Santa was talked to.
Fun times with friends!
Gracie got to sing with the 5th grade choir at a local mall and enjoy lunch in the food court afterwards.
