Christmas happenings at our house of late:
Presents for school teachers. They left the house like this and were delivered to the teachers sans ribbons and tags. Caleb was too excited to be bothered with keeping them looking pretty -- I'll remember that next year.
All bundled up and enjoying the scenery.
Isaac, per usual, not looking at the camera.
This is a recent tradition at the National Zoo and
I think we will make it one of ours too.
I thought the lights were very impressive and plentiful, but the boys were far more interested in the naked mole rats exhibit.
Thank you to the makers of gingerbread house kits. The boys love to decorate them, but I just don't have the motivation to make the gingerbread myself.
The finished product. Looks good enough to eat, no?
Okay, so not so much, but we had fun creating it, nevertheless.
A rare shot of Isaac cooperating for the camera.
We've been reading a Christmas story every night this month and the boys have LOVED unwrapping each day's book. These are not all new books, by the way. We just wrapped up the Christmas stories we already owned, added a few more, and voila, 25 days of Christmas stories.
