The first Saturday of December, we put up Christmas decorations in the house. We had popcorn and a movie too.
The second Saturday we bought a tree and put it up and decorated it.
This Saturday we had a cookie decorating day. We baked cookies, invited the girls' second cousins over to help out. Ed was the official cookie tester. Then after dinner we packed up our cookies and some hot cocoa and a Christmas carol CD and got in the car. We drove around town looking at Christmas lights, eating our cookies, singing along with the Christmas carol CD and drinking hot cocoa. It was a fun time.
The girls said this was the best family day ever! Want in on a little secret? They tell us that EVERY family day! :)
Here are some photos of the decorating party.
My sister Mechelle and I did some cookie decorating too, but we are camera shy and didn't take photos. ;)
Mechelle's granddaughters took their cookies home to eat some later, we sent a plate of cookies home with Mechelle too. It was a fun day.
