I have really been wanting to post some things lately but with me not being able to upload any pictures I haven't been stressing over it. I have been too busy enjoying a slow life at home with my little family. 99.9% of my Christmas shopping was done on Black Friday, and since Kiera was at her first sleepover for her BFF's birthday the Saturday after, I wrapped all of the presents while watching The Hunger Games. So I have been done with everything and able to enjoy some down time to play and relax. I know a lot of people talk about the stress of the season, but that has not been the case for me this year. And I really needed that. So here is a list of some things we have done so far...
Put up the tree and decorations with the help of an awesome 5 year old.
Went to see Santa at Bass Pro Shops.
Took a weekend trip to Eureka Springs.
Visited the Cosmic Cavern.
Made a graham cracker house.
Wrote and mailed a letter to Santa.
Went to Cherry Berry.
Made a count down calendar.
Drove around to look at lights on houses.
Made a Santa and Elf puppet.
Broke out the fire pit in the back yard.
Played spa at home and got a manicure and pedicure with red and green polish!
Watched Christmas movies cuddled on the couch.
There are still a number of other little things I have planned for us to do up until Christmas, so I will report on those later. Oh and I will be off work for 9 days over the holiday which I cannot wait for!
