Wondering what we did last month? Here’s a recap.
You’ll see me post a lot more this month as I’m going to try to document as much of our family’s Whole30 as possible (more on that later).
As part of our 25 acts of random kindness, we dropped off some cookies and baked goodies for the firemen at our local fire station. They offered to show us the trucks, which of course made G-man’s day!
We also dropped off treats for our furry friends at the local shelter (and of course took some time to visit with the kitties).
We also candy cane bombed all the cars from our house all the way to the library (for those who don’t know what that means, we attached a holiday note on a candy cane and left it on the windshield of parked cars) and donated some of our used books to the library.
We made crafts and decorated a gingerbread house. Our annual tradition is to make handprint ornaments for each child so we can see how much their hand has grown from the previous year. This year we also made fingerprint angels – I think they turned out super cute!
We visited the Children’s Museum for some rainy day fun.
We brought some treats to the turtles in one of the local ponds.
And we took another trip to Bee City where the kids took a particular interest in the turtles and the birds.
There was also some racing!
Another annual tradition we have in the MerryFew house is to have the kids open one gift on Christmas Eve. That gift is their Christmas pajamas!
We were feeling the love with the number of cards we received! The kids loved receiving envelopes from friends and helping to hang the cards. I had strung two strings to keep the cards on and they got so full we had to start stacking them! I guess I could have strung another string but I ran out of 3M adhesive and didn’t have time (or maybe I was too lazy…) to run to the store…
This is what Christmas looked like at our house. How was yours?
We had a rack of lamb for Christmas dinner… check out Little Miss taking that lamb lollipop doooowwwwn!
The Saturday after Christmas we headed up to visit my in-laws and the kids played with their cousin who they don’t get to see often. It was a ton of fun!
We spent the earlier part of this week preparing for our Whole30 challenge and spent New Year’s Eve at a friend’s house who has kids the same age as ours. The hubs and I then spent the rest of the evening watching the various shows and performers on TV. Kind of boring for most, but perfect for us.
What about you? How was your NYE?
