25 days of christmas: days 20-24

merry christmas eve dear friends!!!
i look forward to christmas eve just as much as christmas day
our countdown to our Lord's birth is finally complete!
 here is a recap of what we did for the last few days:

day 20: we made home made hot chocolate

day 21: we made our christmas cards!
my girls were such troopers... cranking out over 50 hand drawn
christmas cards for our friends and family

jolly ol' saint nick!

a christmas tree

a "fairy angel "

and a snow man

day 22: the girls watched the classic movie rudolph the red nosed reindeer
day 23: rode the giant rocking horse at our local mall (for all you locals, it's a must do!)

and today for day 24, we take the girls to mass and then head on over
to my hubby's side of the family to celebrate with everyone. 
we exchange gifts at midnight, a tradition that my husband's family 
has been doing since he could remember.

i hope you all have enjoyed sharing in our little countdown!

from my little family to yours...
may your christmas be happy 
and your new year blessed!!!

50 Handmade cards? That's really impressive and couldn't be a more perfect way to spread the Christmas spirit. I love how you make every day an event, Jozen. Merry Christmas, my dear friend.
