Christmas Countdown: Day 9

Today was a special day. The boys begged to have a "hookey" day this morning. They both had substitutes, so why not. A skip day is always nice once in awhile. The kids played Lego's and colored. We watched lots of Christmas movies and "The Smurfs". Today's special movie was "The Santa Claus." I love that movie. The kids all colored their Santa's and we put the movable Santa together. They put on a little play and had so much fun with them.



Parker and Emma helped make North Pole Cupcakes. They turned out so cute. The kids really liked the idea.


Our book tonight was a new one, "How Murray Saved Christmas." It was a pretty funny book, co-authored by one of the writers of the Simpsons. The boys really enjoyed the book, especially the word, "poo" was used. We had a wonderful skip day!
