We have also been participating in Christmas activities with our wonderful group of home schooled families. The kids decorated graham cracker houses and we now have a cute little gingerbread village on our hearth.
We were a little later than usual putting up our tree this year since we were out of town when we would have normally done it, but it got done and I had a great time watching the boys help their Daddy get it set up.

LB and I spent Saturday morning shopping with Mama. Mama got most of what she had left to do done while we were out and I got my niece and nephews finished in one stop, which was wonderful! It was kind of fun to try to hide a couple of things from LB while I shopped. I was able to buy one thing for her and some stocking stuffers for the boys without her knowing it. She is a very sharp little girl and misses very little, so it was a challenge to distract her, but Mama helped and we got it done. We finished up with lunch at Chik-fil-a. The one closest to us has just re-opened after being remodeled. Let me just say that it was absolutely crazy in there, but we enjoyed it anyway.
LB was in the city Christmas parade with her dance class on Saturday afternoon. The weather was threatening to get bad, but thankfully the rain held off until after the parade was over. It was quite cloudy and windy and I had a hard time getting any good pictures. That kind of makes me sad since LB and her friend H got to carry the banner for their group. This is one of LB's favorite Christmas activities and she was thrilled to get to carry the banner. I wish I had a clearer picture of her smiling and waving as she passed us.

He won, by the way ;-)
