A busy, yet fun month!

So far this month has been pretty busy! We had a fairly slow November, so it was nice to have a little change in routine.

The girls participated in a musical roadtrip with or church. They toured a few nursing and group homes. They sang a few songs and shared the gospel to these groups. After the tour, they performed it for the parents. They both had a really good time.

Easton did not want to participate in the big program, but he was asked to help with props for the little kid program. The preschool-kindergarten group sang during church. Easton was a goat. Weston was supposed to sing, but had drippy eyes that day.

We also made gingerbread houses. The kids always enjoy doing that. This year our homeschool group had a family contest, so we made a bigger one to bring to the Christmas party. Jocelyn and Easton decorated that one. Sean built a little bit of it and I finished it off.

We received the award for the best use of candy.

We had a great time at our homeschool party. There were crafts, games, a book exchange, and a lunch. It was so good seeing everyone!

Sean and I hired a sitter and attended his work Christmas party. It is always nice (for me) to see everyone. Sean sees everyone everyday, but I enjoy seeing them also when the chance comes up. There was a dinner, casino games, and big blow up games. Sean and some of the other managers decided to do this one. No broken bones!

We also had my moms side of the family over for lunch. This was the first time that my aunts and cousin traveled out to see us. We had such a good time visiting. I should have taken more pictures.

We are taking two well needed weeks off from school. I only took 4 days off when I had Landon and have a lot of little things that I want to get done....so the kids and I were both ready for a break! On our first day off we headed to Stuhr Museum and played for a bit. We also looked at all of the trees that were decorated by area organizations.

The month isn't over yet! We will still travel down to Missouri to see Sean's family. It will be a short trip, but well worth it. I hope Landon is good!
