Countdown to Christmas 2013 ~ Days 4 & 5


Snow has been forecast for days, and yet . . . not a trace in our neck of the woods :(
So, on the 4th we decided to make our own snowflakes.

Later that evening we were invited to Nana and Grandpa's to decorate their tree.

Kam LOVES to decorate.
In 20 or so years, if you're looking for an interior decorator . . .

The girls have been begging to dress up their American Girl dolls, and pose them for photos.
I found an adorable baking set for dolls on Amazon that didn't cost eleventy million dollars.
 Sierra and Kenners dressed their dolls in aprons, and had an AG baking photo shoot ;)
That was our activity for December 5th.

While the big girls were snappin' away, the little girls were cuddled in the living room . . .

. . . watching some Christmas classics.

Whew! Life seems rather chaotic right now.
I have a list of about three thousand things to do, and every time I check one item off, five more pop up.
Every year my goal is to make the month of December stress-free. 
Looks like I need to work a little harder at that :)

How fun that you did an doll photo shoot, my daughter would love that. Love the ornament shot. December does always seem to be busy no matter how hard you plan

Cute doll set! Abby would love it. It might be chaotic, but it looks like you all are having fun!

Today, we did a fun craft. It was similar to this:

We used black paper and they turned out so pretty!

Oh and I used a Christmas light bulb template to make them all the same size.

It's so funny because I think we all say we want a low key December and it never happens. Maybe I should start planning now for next year. I'm enjoying your countdown!
