Getting Ready for Christmas!

by @ 1:33 pm on December 10, 2011. Filed under update

Over the past several weeks we have hosted a housewarming party, Thanksgiving and started getting ready for Christmas.  It’s wonderful to once again to have a place where our many friends and family can drop by with a moments notice.  Other than that we have been spending as much time as possible as a family doing fun activities such as making Christmas cookies, visiting Santa, taking swimming lessons, and decorating the house for the holidays.   One of the most important things we have done as a family is to fill a shoebox full of clothes and toys for a child in need.  Emma had a great time picking out gifts for a little girl her age.  We’ve been tracking the package and it’s gone halfway around the world to India.  We think it is very important to teach Emma generosity at a young age.

We are looking forward to spending the holidays with our families.  We are once again planning to host a meal or two during this time.  It’s a good thing Joe, Emma and I love to cook and bake.  If Joe and I are doing things in the kitchen that Emma can’t help with, she is busy cooking in her play kitchen or setting the table for everyone.

Homework Time!
