Christmas Preparations

It's starting to look like Christmas around our house, although I have precious few pictures to prove it!

The girls started their Good Deeds tradition on the first of December. They love this so much! And their deeds keep them so busy that I don't hear "I want" much at all. They've been making peppermint ornaments (easy and great fun!)...
writing letters...
making cards...
and making other crafts, as well as baking multiple batches of cookies and helping me do chores around the house.

One of Katherine's Good Deeds was to buy food for the food bank. I gave her a $10 budget and took her shopping. This is her rather impressive selection!
Tonight we went to a Light Parade downtown. There were all sorts of cars, trucks, fire engines, horses, people, and at least one dog lit up with Christmas lights. Fun!
The next week will bring a caroling party, school Christmas parties, the church Christmas pageant, and a family holiday gathering. Maybe I'll even take pictures.
