We had a wonderful Christmas in 2014. Mom & Dad both needed a break from work, so we took it! As a family, we were able to relax and re-connect with lots of games, soccer, movies…and just being together. One afternoon we played soccer out back, with Mom & Dad being the biggest cheaters! It was fun. Preparing for Christmas was quite the event. It seems like new creations were made and put under the tree or in a stocking daily. So, in addition to lots of presents, we also got these:
Very thoughtful letter from Shannon:
Special gift that mom asked for (a paper-made quilt):
Beautifully decorated envelope by Shannon – no help or ideas from anyone:
Very creative idea from Shannon – a surprise treasure hunt!
This was the advent calendar story and instructions from Aunt Judy, and resulting products from the kids:
