December 4-10, 2015, Snapshot Summary: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

December 4-10

This week the kids went to First Friday Roller Skating in Dover, Delaware.
We celebrated Saint Nicholas Day.

Steven took the kids to get a Christmas Tree...
and pinecone birdfeeders.
 Katie and James gathered greenery...

got out all the baubles...
(We have a tabletop tree this year because we have a puppy.)
 and decorated the tree. 

They filled the knick-knack cabinet and transformed it into a Christmas cabinet...



 and otherwise decorated.

James and I went to a Christmas party with our homeschool group.

There was three performances of A Christmas Carol for Quentin and three more this weekend.

How was your week?

    1. It was a race game during the Christmas party. The kids broke up into two teams and the teams raced to fill the panty hose full of balloons. They then took turns wearing them as reindeer antler hats.
