And three more days have been lived, recorded and added to the album.
I used to have a hard time finding seasonal things to add for each day and stuck in a few “everyday” types of pages…well…that’s not really happening anymore. These kids (ahem…and their mother) do SO MUCH Christmasy stuff…it’s not been hard to find something each day. The only trouble is Dave. ;) As usual! He’s always the least represented. If only he played with Christmas toys or made the Christmas cards or sung more Christmas songs. Maybe he and I need to have a little talk. ;)
On the 10th I was a Christmas card MACHINE. Just sayin’. (On the page I wrote “This year’s Christmas card: washi!” to record that I used lots of washi tape. I wanted to explain that for folks that don’t know what washi is. Mom, that means you. ha!)
Andrew has been in charge of bringing lots of Christmas music into our home. Everyday after school he practices his keyboard and he told me that his music teacher is having him and another little girl play piano in the holiday assembly! So now he’s practicing *extra* hard with a pretty motivating end in sight. I am so excited and proud of my little booger.
And Isaac’s been playing with our two nativity sets. He doesn’t really understand the story, but at least he’s being exposed to the cast of characters: a baby, some kings, some animals…and…um…Lucy.
Tomorrow is Andrew’s Gingerbread Party and 4 of out of his 6 classmates are definitely coming…with one maybe and one I have not heard from. So it’s bound to be a good time!
