Saturday we are supposed to see some much anticipated snow. And that is fine with me! We have Mass to attend and then we will pick up some takeout and head home for a cozy Christmassy night by the tree. Before I get cozy, though, I will tackle the pile of ironing I have been avoiding for awhile. I actually don't mind ironing. Once I get started!
Sunday I plan on doing one of my favorite things...writing out our Christmas Cards. It is something I really enjoy, as I find it cozy and comforting to sit at the table with a cup of tea and a pile of cards, slowly thinking of and praying for each recipient. I usually have some Christmas music on, and always have a few helpers too. : )
I am also planning on putting some beef tips in the Crock Pot for dinner. Beef Tips over egg noodles is one of our favorite comfort foods ever. We will end our weekend with the Holiday Baking Championship then...The Mid Season Finale of The Walking Dead! Which, by the way, is muuuch better this year than last!
Here is a look at the past week here in our country Christmas home...
Last week was the first weekend of December...translation: Time to pull out the Christmas clothes!
We enjoyed some comfort food...
As well as some yummy Christmas cake. : )
We had one of the most wonderful moments in our little homeschool this past week!
You know that moment when your child suddenly "gets it"??
Flynn and I were studying Place Value with Base Ten in Math Class...
Suddenly...she looked up at me and said, "I never knew it could be like this! I always thought they were just numbers!"
I was so happy.
And my girl was so proud. : )
Science was all about winter birds here in Pennsylvania.
So we made some festive birdseed decorations...
And hung them outside before the snowflakes flew!
Our Daily Practice this past week was all about Santa's little helpers...the elves.
We read some fun facts about them, and did some arts and crafts too.
Flynn even filled out an application to become an elf!
Flynn has enjoyed our Advent thus far,
Especially celebrating the feast days of the saints. : )
We enjoyed a movie night...
Frosty's Winter Wonderland.
We also resumed our afternoon tea.
I suppose it should be afternoon tea and cocoa though!
Lastly... so proud of my firstborn!
Madison completed her amazing experience at The Nicci Welsh Makeup Academy this past week!
She is now a licensed professional makeup artist!
So excited for her to begin to do the things she loves.
And...she and Nicolas will be home next week!
Could I bother you for a few prayers for their safe travel?
That's all for now.
Have a wonderful, cozy weekend, my friends.
Thanks for visiting.
