December activities

Okay, so friends of mine are sending out cards, making cookies and candy, decorating their homes with lights, and participating in frenzied shopping. (The mall looked awfully quiet today though!)

Us? Our tree has been up forever (and we love seeing it), I might get to writing a Christmas letter this year---maybe, fudge should happen sometime because I have everything I need or maybe Jim will make it, cookies don't last beyond 3 days, and cinnamon rolls haven't been on the docket yet but need to be so he can take them to work.

BUT we are reading Genevieve Foster's World of Caesar Augustus and have reached the part about Herod, King of the Jews. Fitting reading, I think.

I found a fun mathematics workbook (a whopping 29 pages) for the kids to do before Christmas. Lots of colors, easy on the eyes, fun theme (Princesses and Scooby Doo). What more could a child ask for?

Ahem! Those things must wait for Christmas Day! ;-)

I know about baking not lasting. I am dying to make a cereal mix and coat it all in chocolate for a snack on Christmas day but I dont dare because I will eat it all now! My stuff is all done too but now I have to get going on Tinks birthday. Invitations should be going out since it is next week after all. I hate that her birthday is right after Christmas!

*Love* the quotes on your sidebar! I couldn't agree more.

I'm trying to take things a little easier (read: simpler and less chaotic!) this year. I haven't given much thought to neighbor gifts. I hope they don't hate me. :)
