December 8th through to the 11th

The 25 days of Christmas continue; please forgive the lack of witty phrasing in this post it is mostly composed of photos and brief descriptions.
On December 8th we made Christmas bracelets.

Froggy looked particularly dashing in his red Christmas bracelet.
December 9th was Christmas nail night.
Lola just wanted jewels on her nails, but she instantly regretted that when Mom busted out her amazing candy cane stripped nails.
On December 10th we made a paper chain garland for the tree.
And then on December 11th we went to a Christmas concert. Well, techinally Mom and Dad went to a Christmas concert while Lola stayed home with Grandma, but still a Christmas concert was enjoyed. After the show we had a big dinner back at our house with Grandma, Grandpa Steve, Baba and Grandpa Bill. Mom failed to take any photos at that gathering too.

More to come...

December 6th and 7th

On December 6th we all pulled out our special boxes of ornaments and put them on the tree.
Lola's are mostly concentrated around one section of the tree, towards the bottom.
December 7th was Christmas craft night and we made snowpeople.

Glue and cotton balls go a long way to making her a very happy little girl.

December 5th

December 5th was the night that we decorated the tree for Lola's room. She loves having her own room that she is allowed to take the ornaments on and off as much as she pleases. It also looks super cute in her big girl room.

December 3rd and 4th

December 3rd we had an Christmas inspired breakfast. The Christmas tree pancakes were a huge hit!
December 4th we headed out to the woods to hunt down our tree. Normally when we get our tree there is snow on the ground and a chill in the air. This year there was just rain and lots of it. But, we pretended that it was snow and persevered through the rain and mud and found the most perfect tree.

I give you the Montgomery family Christmas tree!

December 2nd

December 2 - Decorate the house for Christmas

Decorating can sometimes be really hard work and a t-shirt and leggings can be too restrictive. In these situations it only makes sense to get on your bikini and winter boots to finish the job.
