We had a fun filled weekend of Christmas activities! The boys & I started the weekend out with a Christmas craft, pine cone Christmas trees. Back in the fall we collected pine cones on Jekyll Island specifically for this project. I gave the boys some glitter glue & pom poms & let them have at it. It was a super simple project but the boys really enjoyed it, especially the glitter glue!
I think they turned out cute enough to use with our Christmas village
Our new neighborhood had a Christmas festival Saturday, with a petting zoo, Santa & yummy Christmas treats. The boys, especially Garren loved the animals in the petting zoo! I didn't think we'd ever get him back out of the pin.

Seeing Santa went a little different than we anticipated, Garren had told me he was going to sit on his lap & not cry this time. And he did, he ran right over to him, climbed in his lap & told him he wanted a Thomas tent & a Thomas hat, lol... Caden & Kellan pulled their shy act & hid behind us but they did give Santa a high five before leaving :)
After the festival we went to get some Christmas lights for the house. Our 2 strands from our old house weren't going to be enough for this house plus they were white & the boys wanted "rainbow lights."
The boys enjoyed some scooter riding while Donna hung the lights

That was our fun for this weekend, we probably won't get another day with Donna now until Christmas. We've gotten use to being a FedEx family during the holidays & keep ourselves busy while she works crazy hours making sure her employees are ok & just hope she makes it home before midnight on Christmas Eve!
