I have to share with you a tradition that we started this year. You can find the original idea and post at this awesome blog from Confessions of a Homeschooler: Mini Van Express. I downloaded the tickets she provided, laminated them, and hid them in the girls' beds. We got the girls ready for bed as normal - pajamas, brush teeth, potty, etc. When they climbed into bed, they found their tickets. I shouted, "All aboard! The Mini Van Express will be pulling out in 2 minutes." (I had already placed their slippers at the front door and jackets in the van.) I punched their tickets as they got in the van (and every time we got out and back in the van). We drove around and looked at lights, saw Mr. & Mrs. Clause, and grabbed a snack. It was a late night, but worth every minute of it. Can't wait to do it again next year!
So, I actually got all my Christmas shopping done before Christmas. LOL I think everything is actually going to be here in time. WooHoo! I'm super excited about one gift in particular that I'm giving, but I can't share until after Christmas because I think she reads my blog. I'll be sure to share afterwards though. =) As for the girls, it's another Barbie year intertwined with Lalaloopsies, a password Diary, make up, and cheerleading. What did you ask for for Christmas? I'm hoping for Project Life. =)
Is everyone on their winter break? We started today. The girls celebrated by wearing bathing suits and playing "beach" upstairs. Hahaha! Our post a little picture of the grusome scene they were playing earlier. We are so going to enjoy our break!
