It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

I've taken several pictures of activities that seem to define this time of year for our family.  Here are just a few:

Spencer made this gingerbread house at preschool.  It lasted only three minutes after this picture was taken.

Here is a rough-draft of a letter to Santa written by Brevin (edited by his teacher). I love how Brevin spells Zhu-Zhu pet.

Christmastime wouldn't be complete without spending a few minutes in front of Grandpa Park's train.  It is a replica of the train from the movie The Polar Express and it's a dandy.

Each of our children have three Christmas drawers at Grandma and Grandpa Park's house where they get to chose a number to receive a gift. Brevin is showing off his new word search book and pencils.

The Christmas cards keep coming in... 

...and we sent our "newspapers" out.

I purchased a bunch boxes for an order with my cupcake business and didn't end up using them, so I made a few cupcakes to give to the boys' school and primary teachers.  The greeting is "Mele Kalikimaka" because the cupcakes are chocolate coconut...delicious!
