Happy Post Holidays! Taking advantage of my boys napping at the same time, I'm going to blog about our Christmas plans. I thought, Sam has the entire month of December off, we should try to do everything! Turns out there's too much of a good thing, and next year I'm going to simplify it as much as possible. But, I'm going to blog what we did end up doing!
|11/28/16: The Nutcracker! We thought Joey might enjoy it, and he did very well for the first half. |
Then we realized he is a three year old. At a ballet.
|12/1-12/2/16: A Child is Born concert. We do this every year, but this was our last year. |
It was better than I expected: I thought it was going to be a pretty long program but it hit about an hour.
|Jacob and Shauna were super kind to drop off a cookie making kit! |
We decided to make the cookies for our neighbors and go caroling with the Boyacks.
Our bigger tree arrived and we immediately replaced our previous 4 footer.
Maybe not Christmas related, but Sam decided to take the kids to McDonald's for ice cream while I was off somewhere.
As offhandedly as I could manage I told Sam he should build me a farm house table during his long break. He broke out the laptop, found plans, tweaked them to create extension leaves, and whipped it out in what I thought was record time. Thanks to our parents in letting us borrow space and tools!
|Complete with ghost chairs and a planter centerpiece.|
|Christmas card and letter!I wanted to go with a New Mexican theme since this is|
our last year as New Mexicans (for a while at least).
Hopefully I can whip out the rest of our holiday soon!
