Twas the Night Before Christmas

The sun has set on the Middle East and the little ones have just gone to bed. We've opened our Christmas jammies, opened and read the book from Oba and Oji (thanks guys!), left reindeer food out for the reindeer and a trail of glitter to lure Santa to our door and left a plate of cookies for Santa along with a personalized note written and illustrated by Maya. Not much left for Brian and I to do but wait for the little ones to drift off to sleep. Christmas is the best when there are small children in the house! Happy Holidays to all!

Cookie Tree

Ok here is the finished product! Maybe it lists a bit to one side and maybe I photographed the best side, but we sure had fun. Now I just have to keep the kids from eating it before Brian gets home!

Year in Review

I'm going to try to do this every December. It will be nice to have a 1 page sum up to our year. Wow we were busy this year. I hope all of you had as much fun as we did in 2009!

Making Cookies

I found this super cute kit the other day and thought the girls and I would have a lot of fun making this tree. We got all of the stars cut out and they are in the oven! Can wait to get them all cooked and start the decorating. Will post the final product later, no matter what it looks like!
