Unfortunately, our Thanksgiving trip to New Jersey was cancelled due to the weather. We were all packed up (cool idea for packing here) and ready to go, but by Monday evening they were calling for some pretty bad weather. We decided it may not be safe to travel with the crazy holiday traffic and bad weather combined. So, we stayed home this past week and made the best of it. The picture of the girls in the snow was taken at 7:30a.m. Obviously they were pretty excited to wake up to the snow. Wednesday was a beautiful day. It snowed all day, but not so much that anyone lost power or was unable to get out and about. The girls put up and decorated their own tree, we all put up the “family” tree, we baked cookies, made more diy Christmas gifts, made 10 gallons of laundry detergent, painted a wall, painted a door, built some shelves, and a partridge in a pear tree! There will be more post to come on some of the things I listed. So, we stayed busy this week, but loved it! Here’s a glimpse into the past week at The Ugly House We Love!
We got an Elf on the Shelf. His name is Frost. We read the book, a Christmas tradition. We read it as a family and then we went to sleep. We woke up the next morning and guess where Frost was! In Brook’s bat mobile! Isn’t that cool? 🙂
FYI-McKinley wrote the above info herself!!!!!
My kids became Home Depot employees and set up shop in the basement.
We have had a fun and busy week. There’ll be more on our projects for the week later. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving week as well!
