We're Counting...


It Begins... Austin brought home a countdown chain that he made at school today. The first thing Landon wanted to do after school is eat his "chocolate for the day". Gearing up for Christmas is fun for the kids but crazy for the mom.

Grandma Perigo sent each of the kids an advent calander. They are thrilled about getting a candy a day. Sadly, for Austin, I wasn't on the ball and I haven't exchanged his chocolates (milk and peanuts) for allergenic-free candy. So he was a little bummed he didn't get to eat his candy today. We made snickerdoodles to make up for it. Gotta get to the store tomorrow - I'll just add that to my list. I only have 23 more days to get it all done! I'm just wondering, why is my list getting longer?! {and how come the hair GLUE I use for Landon's hair doesn't last through the school day anymore?}

Have fun with all of the Christmas stuff....it makes the time go so fast! I would suggest this stuff in a yellow bottle called punk gel or something like that. I put it on Mary's head to keep a bow on it when she was an infant. It stuck so well that the doctor actually had to take it out.
You are such a sweet mom to make cookies for Austin.

Poor Austin! You are awesome to make cookies with him. I'd say that MORE than made up for it.

We got some of those calendars from the kid next door who was selling them for school. I think they are the new favorite thing! What will we do when the 25 days are up?! Nothing keeps my kiddos hair up either. Miss you! Hope you are feeling OK!
