Christmas Break 2011

Friday was our last day of school before our two week Christmas break. My favorite part of being on break from school is that there is no alarm clock! We've been enjoying our time off. Here's how we've been spending our time:
The kids spoke to Santa during our trip to Tuscaloosa last weekend. I'm pretty sure that the kids changed up their lists for what they asked for during this visit. 
Hubby is the grandson of a baker. He likes to get out the 'ol family recipes at Christmas. These are "Grandma's Cookies" which I was told that I had to marry into the family before I could have the recipe:
These are "Chocolate Drop Cookies:"


What else? Well, today Hubby and Our Boy went to volunteer at the food bank with the 3rd-5th graders at our church. They both enjoy serving here. This was their 3rd time going to volunteer.


Our Girl and I stayed home today. You have to be 8 years old to serve at the food bank, and she's not quite there yet. She also has a cold with a stuffy nose and yucky cough. Seems like both of the kids always get sick on this break from school. Our Boy missed 3 days of school last week, and now Our Girl is sick.

While we were home today, I gave Our Girl Rudolph toes...got the idea from Pinterest (of course)!
We also wrapped presents while we listened to Handel's Messiah and some Bieber too!

We're looking forward to the Christmas Eve Service at church, and being with both sides of our family this Christmas. We are blessed. Merry CHRISTmas to you!
