Christmas Festivities

Amongst our very full schedules…we have, of course, made time to fill our house with all of our festive Christmas "props!"  The tree went up, like clockwork, on December 1st.  This year, the decorating was almost entirely done by the girls!  I see the Christmas spark (inherited from mommy and papa) in their eyes!  The countdown is in full swing, and the girls have shown Luna (our special elf friend) how good they are.  They've both completed their "good behaviour" stamp card from Luna, and got an extra special surprise this morning (a Luna pez dispenser and Luna craft bag!) Our mini tree! A couple of my favourite ornaments!
Aaaaand… the girls performed in their Christmas Dance Concert this past weekend! Santa came for a visit!
