Christmas Countdown: Day 20

Day 20 actually occurred today. We had to switch day 20 and 21 because Carson was sick. Today the kids were so excited for their special activity- play doh. All moms will agree that play doh is the messiest product in the world. All kids will agree that play doh is one of the best things to play with. Normally play doh is something we only do at Grandma & Grandpa's house. Since we won't be back to the states until summer to visit they were nice enough to send some over the ocean to us. The kids played for over an hour. They just love play doh.


Today we watched the movie, "Elf." It is such a family favorite! To go with the movie I made Elf Cupcakes. I saw the idea in one of my cupcake books. I think they turned out so cute!


The kids all have bad colds with snotty noses and coughs. But they had a lot of energy. After being in the house all afternoon we had to get out. We went to American Village to look at the lights and watch some performances. All over the outdoor shopping area were different Santa statues. The kids, especially Parker just loved them. He kept talking to them like they really were Santa.


Tonight we read, "The Little Christmas Elf." Then the kids went to bed so we can get rid of these stupid colds before Christmas Day!
