What a busy month. I had the majority of my Christmas shopping done at the beginning of the month and by the 2nd week had all that I had wrapped. We spent the month preparing for Jesus’ birthday and Santa by reading a devotional each day.
We celebrated Judy’s birthday at Max N Ermas mid month. We also baked our Christmas cookies. Martin and Brody had their Christmas pageant at church and I must say that Brett and I had the cutest sheep on the stage. We also went to see Santa the weekend before Christmas. Joselyn was not a huge fan this year.
Joselyn had to miss it all because she got a stomach bug the day of the performance. Thankfully no one got it. She also got the flu the last week of the month.
Christmas Day was such a blast. The boys woke us up about 5am and waited patiently for my coffee to brew. Once I got my coffee the paper flew. Joselyn was more interested in seeing what Martin and Brody got. At least until Brett put her kitchen together. We packed up the kids around 9 after some play time and our traditional breakfast of cinnamon rolls and headed up the Grandma and Grandpa McCoy’s where we spent the rest of the day hanging out and opening a few more gifts.
We spend New Year’s Eve in Wellington with my family where the kids got to stomp ice patches, ride 4 wheelers and stay up late.

The 1st weekend of the month my parents and brothers came over to mud the basement. I had a great time visiting and the boys had a blast “helping” their uncles. The following weekend Brett built my raised garden beds and installed 1 of the 3. I (and the boys) are very excited to start using them. I also cleaned out the kids’ closets of outgrown/unwanted clothes and toys.

Brett had already planned to go camping this month but it just happened to be when the temperatures decided to drop to 19 degrees the 1st night. That weekend we also experienced our 1st snow of the “winter”.

We celebrated Thanksgiving at the McCoy’s where my parents joined us for a delicious meal. We also put up our Christmas tree and wrote to Santa in preparation for Christmas.
