With 2 Days until Christmas we had lots of activities planned for today. First and foremost we had to get one last gift for our Adopt-A-Grandma that we are visiting tomorrow. Then some baking to do (Six Layer Cookie and Rocky Road Fudge). We ended our day with more sewing. Lexi really wanted to make a purse shaped like a heart, then we stitched another felt purse for one of her American Girl Dolls. Ava Mae wanted in on the fun and so I made her a little purse shaped like a Christmas stocking. She said she is going to wear it tomorrow and fill it with Christmas candy to hand out to people she sees and wish them a "Merry Christmas."
Tomorrow will be another activity filled day. Our morning starts out with our traditional Christmas Eve Breakfast at a local diner with a close family friend, back to exchange gifts at our home with our friend - Ms. Jen, then off to an early Christmas Eve service, a visit to our Adopt-A-Grandmother and then more baking - Jesus' birthday cake and mini-chocolate chip cookies. The kids are so excited they can barely sleep tonight. We will end tomorrow in front of our Advent Wreath and the kids want to put on a Christmas show for us that Lexi has been working hard on choreographing. Ava Mae is going to be Mary one of her American Girl dolls will serve as Baby Jesus, Devin is narrating and Lexi is playing piano. It should be interesting. :)
