Winter Fun

We set up our Christmas Tree on the first Monday of December. Just our little ity bity tree. But the girls loved it, and Elayna had fun with Daddy looking underneath the tree. Brianna loved the "pretty" lights.
Then the next FHE we decorated a gingerbread Nativity scence with the girls. They got to decorate their own wise men...they had so much fun!
...eating them too!
Today was such a beautiful day out that I wanted the girls to go out and play in the snow...cause they really never have done that. Oh my goodness just dressing them up was the funnest! I don't think I have ever seen something so cute!!

Hiding in the tree with Daddy :)
They had lots of fun together, trucking through the snow!
I think I finally am seeing the light at the end of my sick tunnel. I could not be more happy. It has been a hard 3 months, but now I am just getting so excited for Christmas. I know I have already said that, but the girls are just so fun right now, I can't wait to see all the fun they will have this season! Hope everyone else is having a great time as well! :)
