Christmas Activities

It was a crazy couple of weeks leading up to Christmas so I just thought that I would post some pictures of some of the fun things that we got to do.

Here are the boys with their 2008 Christmas ornaments -
every year we have let Sam choose a new ornament and this is what they ended up with this year. Andrew's got broken when Sam pulled the tree over (that's a whole other story) but luckily I went back to the store and they still had some left so I was able to replace it.
Our Christmas tree which we got for a killer deal on "black Friday". It is pre-lit but we added a strand of blinking "twinkle" lights to make it more fun. The boys loved it! Andrew especially loved to lay with his head underneath and look up through the branches.

Sam is concentrating very hard on this art project. We painted some Christmas ornaments, the one shown below we kept for our tree and the others we sent to my grandparents. Of course, it's not Christmas unless you decorate sugar cookies so here are our creations. Sam, of course, had to have chocolate on them so his job was to place the M&M ornaments...

...and here is Andrew's contribution!

We also went carolling with my extended family which, despite the icy cold weather, was tons of fun. We practiced Christmas songs with Sam so that he could sing along and he had a blast! (Too bad I forgot the camera...)
