What We've Been Up To

So far this week....
Sunday -

Cookie baking time with the Grands!
Brinley and Zoe decorating their sugar cookies. Aidan and Paityn also decorated some but I don't have any pictures of them. 

Brinley's cookies....a little cookie dough and a whole lot of sugar and sprinkles!
Daddy gives her a high 5 :)

Monday -

Ellen and Candie making cookies. They were having a great time!

Monday evening we took a drive to see our favorite Christmas light show. 

The Krasley's Christmas. It's a light show set to music....always so wonderful!

We drove through the square of our hometown, Manheim. I can never get a good picture of the lights. 

We also love this neighborhood street...

So many pretty houses!

Last stop was another favorite property...

Reflection on the pond. I was not getting good pictures with my phone. This property is just gorgeous!

Tuesday evening -

Dale and I babysat Noah while the rest of his family went to see the Star Wars movie. 

He is such an easy baby! 

Christy's family is here tonight for their Christmas celebration. 

There was lots of food, lots of laughter, lots of talking, lots of children playing :) 

Lots of gifts, too!
(Our poor tree is losing more lights as the weeks progress! Last year for this one.)

Time to open those gifts!

Hubby and I relaxed in the living room :)

It's been a busy week. And a fun week. 

It's also been a cloudy, foggy, drizzly, rainy, warm week. Perfect for me to have a continued headache. Sunshine would help but it's not going to show up anytime soon. What crazy weather for us.  Not complaining because I don't like cold or snow even though it's Christmas. 

Tomorrow I make food for Christmas Day. One gift is to arrive about cutting it close!! The house will need a cleaning again. 

The day we have been waiting for is almost here!

A Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Such beautiful pictures, Doris. Thanks for sharing them. There's nothing like grands, is there? The lights are so lovely. They must we great in person.

Have a very Merry Christmas!
