Saturday morning we had a fun activity planned for the kids...painting with Santa. Crafts, especially painting, are something that we do a lot in our house and I thought that Amelia would love to paint and Barrett would love to watch all the action.
When we got to the painting studio, there were plates with Santa's handprint and a reindeer ornament at each seat. Amelia could hardly contain her excitement. She kept touching the plate and patting it with her fingers...so sweet!
When we came home, we had a relaxing rest of the day planned. The storm Electra was scheduled to hit around 2pm on Saturday afternoon so we knew that we wanted to get home and get settled in before things got too bad.
Amelia did a little reading with her baby in Barrett's room. Barrett's books are filled with boy things--trucks, tractors, diggers and most of them are touch-n-feel. Amelia LOVES to read them. She was reading the books to Cho and having her feel the different areas of the books when I snuck in to get a picture.
I had a work event later on Saturday evening which Jason accompanied me to because of the snowy weather. Before we left for the event, we set Amelia up with some snow so her and Cho could play.
Sunday is usually our day to be lazy and to get ready for the work week. We had a great morning and afternoon (nap included) and then we got ready for our first Christmas party.
Amelia wanted to nap with Cho...isn't she the sweetest?!
I wish that I would have gotten some pictures at the party...opps!
NINE more days until Christmas!!
