Day 22

So, today's stocking was actually yesterday's PRESENT and we picked another one down and it had ACTIVITY(driving to go see Christmas Street and the Christmas Utah house). We also had a cousin's birthday party to go to. It was one busy day for us. The kids' PRESENT from the day before was gingerbread houses. I found a kit with 5 mini village houses which was just perfect for the kids. I built them(all by myself due to Eric being late AGAIN because of stupid work deadlines and cleaning up others' mistakes-not bitter at all, haha)and the kids had at the decorating. They all turned out really cute!All the kids hard at work.
Noah immediately tore his apart and began eating. Silly boy!

Logan having a blast with placing all his candy in patterns.
Kaleigh enjoying all the candy.
Laney figuring out which candy she needs to work with next.
Creative, genius Alexis with her masterpiece.
All the finished houses. I love them all! They are all so adorable and fun was had by all. The houses(left to right) are Kaleigh's, Alexis's, Logan's, Noah's(Eric's favorite), and Laney's. We had planned to go and see some lights before our birthday party, but the weather was HORRIBLE and the streets were a mess. So another night we will drive and see lights. We went to our family party and swiftly came home due to some unexpected puking episodes at the party(fun WAS NOT had by all). Can't we have just one Christmas without sick kids? Is that too much to ask for? Apparently it is, we haven't had a Christmas with well children for the last 8 years! I'm not kidding. Maybe one year I'll finally get what I ask for-EVERYONE to be well! Happy Holidays!
