Movie night started with a very fussy little girl... the only way we could convince her to stop crying was to tell her about a present she had waiting for her. She reluctantly got off our bed but continued to refuse to remove her coat so we let her wear it most of the night (really it wasn't hurting anyone). So she opened her Veggie Tale Christmas movie and we headed back to the room to watch it (our bedroom is the only TV that has a DVD player) She made herself at home and we decided to just have a special big bed picnic while we were watching The Toy that Saved Christmas. She loved that idea and before you know it she even took off her coat finally. Though our advent adventures don't always go as we plan - they are always memorable and we are grateful for time together as a family.

This momma forgot to buy the popcorn and the cranberries so we were forced to resort to the traditional paper chain garland which our little one loved just the same.... and she didn't feel the need to eat it like I am sure she would have wanted to do had we done the popcorn garland. It was also good practice with her colors - though she is getting better - she still thought the paper strips were pink! Hope you enjoy our newest crafting session with mommy!

You can't have Christmas without cookies, right - well I guess you could but it wouldn't be quite so yummy! This year our mom's group at church is doing a cookie dough exchange so I thought it would be fun to get my little baker in on the action. We had a great time and only made a small mess! Ella's biggest stumbling block - the M&Ms - she kept taking breaks to eat more - good thing I only gave her a few in a small measuring cup (yes I have turned into my mother - she would always give herself and sometimes us some chocolate chips in a small measuring cup). Anyway I hope you enjoy our pictures and I hope the other mom's enjoy our cookies!
