There are so many things to be thankful for this month - here's a roundup of just a few
Good friends - its fun to laugh and play!
The pixie program - we have a family to be a "Christmas Pixie" for and we bought doughnuts. (Although I think these were actually the ones I bought for us. I think we got all snowmen for the other family!) It's fun secret santa program. Even though we actually got busted!
Christmas traditions - the Nutcracker is one of my favorite new traditions. Rachael is always on the edge of her seat she likes it so much.
Running into friends - turns out our bishop and his sweet wife were one of the couples in the performance this year!
Good kitchen help - we sometimes do a ginger bread house for Christmas but this year we did a cookie tree instead. Rachael lovingly placed each sprinkle on by hand.
Rachael danced in another version of the Nutcracker this year! It was a lot of hard work but overall I think she enjoyed the experience.
Letters to Santa - this is a fun tradition we got from Uncle Declan's family. After you write it, you burn it! I love sharing everyone's traditions as our families grow and change.
Our beach trip this year was at low tide at Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. I have never seen so many urchins and anemones - this is only a small sliver of the thousands out there. It was beautiful.
