It's Been Ten Days.....

It's been ten days since my last blog post, sorry.  I guess it's just that time of year.  Last week we picked my Mum up from the airport, she is staying with us for two months.  We have been busy doing lots of things to get ready for Christmas.

We decorated the house.........





We went back to Santa's Winter Wonderland at Bass Pro Shops.........


Mum and I went to the school and helped the kids make chocolate covered pretzels and chocolate covered candy canes.  Then we packaged them, so they can give them as gifts.  Against my advice, Madison skipped all the way home with hers in her backpack, hence the broken candy cane........


Mum baked her famous Lemon and Apple Pie.........


We went to my sister-in-law's baby shower, she is carrying my first nephew and my kids' first cousin.  I gave her a blanket and a hat that I spent a lot of time finishing last week.

Connor went to a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese, he had a blast, I needed a glass of wine when we got home........




Today is my day to catch up on things that I have fallen by the wayside because tomorrow we are helping make Gingerbread Houses in Connor's class and in Madison's class we are helping with their Christmas Around the World party.  My Mum bought Christmas Crackers for the kids, to represent England.

Things are pretty crazy around here with all the festivities, an extra body in the house and the kids all wound up with excitement.  The best part of it all, is that the chaos makes it really feel like Christmas!

P.S. Last minute addition, Madison's wiggly tooth FINALLY came out!
