December 6: We have started a new tradition this year. I'll have to admit it's another idea from Pinterest but a really fun one. Before the month started, I wrapped 24 Christmas/winter themed books for the kids. Each night before bed we unwrap a book and read it. It's another way for Luke to count down the days and it's something that Hannah can also enjoy (she's very slowly learning how to listen to a whole book).
December 7: Friday was a pj day at our house. We LOVE having pj days--especially Luke. It's been quite a while since we've had one but I wasn't feeling good and it was cold and cloudy outside so it was the perfect day to stay inside with our fuzzy, warm pj's on.
Luke and I did decorate our gingerbread house while Hannah was napping so we did accomplish something at least. Last year Luke and I decorated graham cracker houses I put together (it was one of the last special activities we did together before Hannah was born--a memory I'll always cherish). This year we have a plastic house that Grammy got for us that it super easy. All you have to do is snap the pieces together and put the icing and candy on. It's worry-free and very fun! Luke did a great job decorating.
