I think we're ready...

Christmas cookies were made...

and subsequently eaten by Lainey. (Hope you like peppermints, Santa!)

Santa videos were watched...
and he was tracked.
Kiddos were put to bed in warm cozy jammies and Twas the Night Before Christmas was read.

I think we're ready, Santa ♥

Christmas Preparations

Christmas season is in full swing for us. Besides our Christmas countdown events and elf shenanigans, we've had parties and community events and family time like...
Flint Holiday Walk
and Swartz Creek Firemen's Christmas parade.
Classroom tree trimming parties

and shopping at the school's Santa's Secret Workshop
and classroom Christmas parties.

Girl Scouts had a holiday party
and so did dance.
We went to all three of Home Depot Christmas workshops where kids made gifts for their teachers, their moms, and their dads. 
And we spent time precious time with cherished family.

Cocoa was consumed
and our holiday puzzle was completed.
Love, love, love.
