Yes, I am still doing that Advent thing...

Day 12: Make a Christmas ornament out of pine cones.
{for those of you wondering.... yes, most of these activies are for Regan. Bubba does not "understand" or want to be part of most of the things that we are doing. I do try to include him when he is feeling up to it, which isn't that often lately. You know what, I think deep down he understands Christmas better than any of us. :}

Day 13: Read a new Christmas story with Mommy.
{This was a back up for a hard night with Bubba. It was PERFECT for that night. She quickly read 7 chapters to me and and then I told her "let's stop there for tonight." and she said "BUT MOM it's so good!" I think I picked a winner. :} 

Day 14: Put on your new Jammies and go to the Polar express event at school.
We brought Regan's sweet little cousin with us! 
 I had been in charge of the book fair all week at Regan's school. Our final night to kick it all off was a polar express reading. An amazing dad made the sign and the train. It was a crazy dash to the last second to get it done but it all came together. :)

Hot Chocolate!!! YUMMMM!! 

Mommy and Regan in our matching Jammies. :) 
This is my partner in crime with the book fair. She is amazing!!! 
After the reading the kids went and made Holiday crafts. 
 This picture cracks me up every time I look  at it.
Regan's little friends LOVES her to death! wink!
I have to give a HUGE thank you to our AMAZING friend Sherrie!!!! {Hubs was working, of course! It is a crazy time for him.} I asked Sherrie if she would watch Bubba so that I could take Regan and she was more than happy to do it. She is AWESOME!! Seriously, not just anyone can watch Bubba. We met Sherrie at his last school, she was an aid in a different class. She has a heart of pure gold and I feel truly blessed to have her in my life!!! She wasn't even bothered by Bubba throwing up on her. wink! Thank you Sherrie!!!!!!
