Due to the lack of snow, it has been hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that the Christmas season is upon us. So today, during Olivia's afternoon nap time the kids and I created our own Christmas cheer by making some holiday crafts together. After we gathered the glue, paint, scissors, and construction paper, we put on some Christmas music and got ourselves into more festive spirits. Granted, the kids have been singing "Jingle Bells" and "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" since this past July, so the music was definitely more for my benefit than theirs.
We also spent quite a fair amount of time reading "Judy Moody & Stink: The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Treasure Hunt."
And, that was our Tuesday afternoon.
