Well, we set up the tree and did a few Christmas decorations around the house right after Thanksgiving. Yesterday we finally got around to baking our first batch of Christmas cookies. The girls had so much fun decorating their cookies!! (and the baby had fun eating the cookie dough that his sisters so graciously kept sharing with him!) We also started on a project (we did the first "phase" anyway) of making ornaments for the tree.
So, what has everyone else been doing with their kiddos, or what do you plan to do?
Here is a pic of the kids decorating their cookies...
And my Hubby took the oldest 3 girls to the Nutcracker this past weekend. They all LOVED it!!!
Great pics! Your girls are adorable. We do Christmas cookies every year too (I have a cookie fetish and if I go two weeks in between making batches of cookies I'm doing well!). We'll probably just do it during the day one of these days soon...
Well being as elora was only 6 weeks old for xmas last year i dont have a tradition with her yet... but with my mom we always do a cookie day. We each buy enough ingredients to make 6 dozen of one or two cookies and then share them... So being 4 of us (sometimes more if friends and extended family come too) we get alot of variety and a good amount of each to take home. I LOVE those days.
here's a couple pics from two years ago!
