Day 7 (Dec 20)- Practicing our Christmas craft for Sunday School, my sick child made this handprint angel. She is just like her Mama- she loves crafts! YAY!!!
Day 8 (Dec 21)- As Bailey is getting older, I'm able to do some of the things with her that I did with my students at school. She absolutely LOVED the gingerbread man hunt. She followed the clues and went all over the house, finding a real gingerbread cookie at the end. A great new tradition!!!
Day 9 (Dec 22)- Cookies for Santa (or at least that's what they were supposed to be). I was super excited about these new pans, but the result was less than desirable! Oh well, Santa didn't mind!
Day 10 (Dec 23)- I LOVE the Eve before Christmas Eve. We all decided to open one present early- Bailey was very excited about her new Bible!
Day 11 (Dec. 24)- Christmas Eve was lots of fun. We spent the afternoon and evening with G-Pa, YaYa and Mamaw. They all came to church with us where Bailey sang Christmas carols at the top of her lungs (even though she didn't know all the words)!!!
Day 12 (Dec. 25)- Christmas Day was busy as always, but filled with lots of good family time!
Then we went to the Doyal's house for Christmas breakfast. Here is Popaw opening his new gun. As Grandy so elegantly put it, "Nothing says Happy Birthday Jesus like an assault rifle!"
Then to my mom's house for more Christmas fun!
Finally, our last stop- David's grandmother's house where Bailey had fun dancing with Gigi!
