Anna June is showing us that she loves Christmas as much as I do. I am so glad. It is my favorite time of year, although I keep telling myself that I can't do everything! Here are some things we've done so far to celebrate the season.
Dec 1 - attended a Christmas party
Dec 2 - put up our tree, practiced for the Christmas program at church
Dec 3 - ate Christmas cookies from Icing on the Cookie. They are participating in a fundraiser for the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center this week called "Sweet on a Cure" where local merchants donate proceeds from dessert sales. AJ watched The Polar Express at school - They got jingle bell necklaces, the teacher punched their "tickets," and they had cocoa and cookies.(AJ declared the movie was certainly different from the book)
Dec 4 - took AJ Christmas shopping for her Daddy's present. After a quick dinner, we stopped at Whole Foods (another Sweet on a Cure participant) and AJ had candy cane gelato (I had orange fig.) Magnifico! At school AJ watched "Elf on the Shelf". I'm personally very anti-elf (I believe there is evidence on the internet that I recently wished to beat up the ladies who created this) but whatever. I'm trying to honor diversity!
I wonder what we'll do today that could possibly top that. Unfortunately, homework and laundry and regular life goes on during the Christmas season. We're doing our best to get in (and stay in) the spirit. Have a holly jolly day!
