We are, of course, still counting down the days to the Big Day. In fact, last night, Quinnie was awake from 2:30 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. because he couldn't stop thinking about Christmas. I thought it was rather cute the first couple of times he came into our room. After two hours, it lost its cuteness and, well, I'd rather not talk about it. I did make a large pot of coffee this morning though.
I've been trying to incorporate Christmas crafts and activities into our advent calendar this year with some success. My little guy is not always interested in crafting but gladly eats the chocolates. Although my oldest could craft all day, at the end of the school day, he doesn't always have the energy or focus. The one thing they have agreed on is decorating the tree. We got our tree Saturday and trimmed it early Sunday morning.
A successful Christmas craft -- needle felted ornaments.
Keegan has been wanting to try needle felting for months and I finally got up the nerve to give it a try. With the help of a cookie cutter, it was quite easy and, most importantly, painless.
The boys are not the only ones who were excited by the arrival of the tree and the many swinging, jingling, hanging trinkets associated with the tree.
