2012 Advent Calendar: Dec. 22nd

Dec. 22

And we did!  Headed South to warm weather and a lovely Christmas with family.  We didn’t do any more Advent Calendar days after this because the rest of our trip was already packed with fun.  We had a mini-family reunion with about 32 people packed into my grandfather’s house on Sunday followed by our first round of presents Sunday night.  On Christmas Eve we relaxed, went shopping and enjoyed family before the kids got to open one present in the evening.  It was a great holiday!

Dec. 21

Goodness this was a busy day as we were getting ready to travel.  We did go to the library to load up on books, magazines, DVDs and audiobooks.  Here’s a photo of Evren after we got home from the library completely oblivious to the stress I was under to get us packed.  What you don’t see is that he had tucked under the couch armrest his phone, notepad, and mints.  He said, “Mom, I could stay here all day!”

The kids needed a big meal to power through exam week. They studied before the food arrived, while we ate and after we got back home. They better bring home some good grades!  Evren casually asked, “Hey mom, after this, how about we go get some dessert?”  Ha!  Uh, no.

A little later than usual, but that’s okay! We got them signed, labeled, stickered up, sealed and in the mailbox! The office is our official Christmas room right now and it’s an absolute disaster…things are happening in there!

Kids’ choice: Nightmare before Christmas. They decided to save Elf (our favorite) for next week “in case Grandma and Grandpa want to watch it too.”

Evren wouldn’t stand next to the Hello Kitty display for me to take a photo…I was trying to get him to hold the Hello Kitty computer bag, but he mumbled something that sounded like “Hell No” and walked off. He was having no part of it. Heh.

I thought the kids would have a little fun designing their own pizzas for dinner. The Papa Murphy’s Mini Murph comes with sauce, pepperoni and cheese. I also made sure they had chopped onions, assorted peppers and sliced black olives to add for at least a little veggies. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo of their masterpieces (shameful).

Ayla has been begging me to take them to family night at Baskin-Robbins for months but she usually has sports on Tuesday (or we just forget). Even though it was a little chilly outside they didn’t mind going out for ice cream!
