It's beginning to FEEL a lot like Christmas

We're ready for Christmas around here! Today we baked more cookies, and just had fun doing nothing! It was a beautiful Colorado day, with lots of sunshine and some warmer temperatures (finally!), so the kids even got to spend some time playing outside. We can finally see our sidewalk again since most of the snow has melted, so they got to ride their bikes and scooters. I was grateful they could be outside for gives me a little break.

A few days ago we got a package from my mom and she sent us a Christmas puzzle. Will and I started it yesterday, but he got frustrated and soon gave up. I couldn't leave it alone though. We finished it this afternoon. It was the hardest puzzle I've ever worked. It was monochromatic, so that made it hard, but the picture on the front of the box wasn't lined up correctly with the puzzle, so we kinda had to make it up as we went along. NOT an easy task! We stuck with it and were glad to have it finished.

John offered to take us out for dinner tonight--and of course we eagerly agreed to go. We went to one of our favorite places. They have the best fish tacos. If you're grossed out by the sound of fish tacos, rest assured I was too, until I tried them. They're really YUMMY! After dinner, we drove around and looked at Christmas lights. We hope to do that again tomorrow night too because we didn't get to all the neighborhoods we intended to. We came home and made reindeer food to leave for Santa's reindeer tomorrow night.

Right now the kids are watching Olive, the Other Reindeer. They're heading to bed soon, and John and I have got to get some wrapping done. Other than that, we're in good shape and are ready for Christmas Eve...won't be long now!
