Our Twelve Days of Christmas!

On the sixth day of Christmas, a treasured memory,
six eyes-a-twinkling,

These three are adorable.  
J-Bear loves her cousins' show-stopping smiles. We've enjoyed this trio so much this Christmas!


 ...five close-knit cousins! 
Four darling bears, three small teeth, two egg nog slurps,
and a J-Bear dressed as Mother Mary!

On the seventh day of Christmas, a bummer for me,
seven sleepy six days....

Sadly, the flu caught me this Christmas.  
It is no fun to be down for the count during Christmas break. 
But, I learned that I can get a lot of prayer time in the urgent care waiting room,
I learned how to play Quirkle with G-Bear,
and I learned that I need to count my blessings,
 even when holidays don't happen according to my plans.

Four darling bears, three small teeth, two egg nog slurps,
and a J-Bear dressed as Mother Mary!

On the eighth day of Christmas, a treasured memory,
eight arts and crafting,

MoMo and Papa's living room has been covered in rainbow scratch paper, dinosaur stickers, 
fairy jewels, scented markers, coloring books, felt paper dolls, water books and more.
These cousins have wild imaginations, love arts and crafts, and really enjoy working together.

and a J-Bear dressed as Mother Mary!

On the ninth day of Christmas, a treasured memory,
nine planets sparkling....

Speaking of arts and crafts, E-Bear worked so hard on his planet sticker picture.  
He couldn't wait to hang it up next to his bed.

On the tenth day of Christmas, a treasured memory,
ten cheerios munching....

J-Bear decided to try Cheerios for the first time on New Year's Day!  What a way to celebrate eight months!  Since then, she's been stuffing cheerios in her mouth by the handful :)


...nine planets sparkling, eight arts and crafting, 
seven sleepy sick days, six eyes-a-twinkling, five close-knit cousins!

On the eleventh day of Christmas, a treasured memory,
eleven creative costumes....

We love


to 


dress up,


dress up our friends,


and play the part.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, a treasured memory,
twelve hands Chick-fil-a-ing...

We are so thankful to have a new Chick-fil-a nearby.  It is the perfect lunchtime get-away.
We can all use a nugget now and then.  The kids always look forward to playing in the play place.  
G-Bear helps Buddy Bear get his boots off, and away they go! 


And yes, we caved this time and let J-Bear taste my IceDream cone.  


She loved it, of course. 


No wonder she won't eat baby food.  :)


...eleven creative costumes, ten cheerios munching, nine planets sparkling,

We hope your Twelve Days of Christmas have been just a sweet!
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!

It is unfair for anyone to still be that beautiful when sick.
