'Tis the Season...

.....to be BUSY!!! It's hard to believe that we're halfway through the month of December and that Christmas is just a little over a week away! I love Christmas and the Christmas season, but boy is it busy! We've done a little holiday baking. Margo really got into it, as evidenced by all the flour on her face!
We made a BIG mess, but we had fun.

Here's little miss, sporting her hand-me-down coat and hat from cousin Caroline. We get so many compliments when she wears this!


Last Saturday we had 'Breakfast with Santa' at our church. Margo is fascinated with Santa and says "HO HO" when she sees him, but she wasn't interested in sitting in his lap. Here she is checking him out from afar while Brayden gets a little bit closer.



Madeline hopped right in his lap....


.......and made sure she told him everything on her list.

This is about as close as Margo got.


Our outgoing Lydia was being very SHY on this day and didn't want to talk to Santa. I had to tell Santa what was on her list.


After that, she hopped up in his lap for a picture! Go figure!


Our family with Santa.


On Sunday night, Madeline and Lydia were in our musical for Children's Choir, "It All Happened in the Country". Here they are posing before heading to the church.



Our Children's Choir. They did an AWESOME job!

Don't they look cute in their country clothing??

Madeline, Lydia and Alyssa sang as a trio for one song. I was so proud of them.



They love being in children's choir.


Afterwards, we had a birthday party for Jesus. After all, HE is the reason for the season.
We've been busy and will continue to be. Tomorrow night we have Lydia's Kindergarten program at school and on Saturday we have Madeline's first piano recital. Good stuff, indeed.

Looks like everyone is having a fun Christmas season, we'll see y'all next week! I loved that little coat & hat too, it was snug on Caroline when we got it but I squeezed her in it as much as I could. Love Jesus' birthday cake, did you make it?
