A December to Remember (6 - 9)

Dec 6th:  another school day and Easton was in a crabby mood when we got home ... didn't really do anything holiday related.

Dec 7th:  We listened to Christmas music on the way into town to do Christmas shopping.

Dec 8th:  We celebrated Christmas with Grandma Cassie and Aunt Ann ... we went to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory and then came up to our house to open presents and spent the evening.





Scout also arrived today ... nothing like showing up late and drunk ... darn Elf!

Dec 9th:  Rode the Polar Express out of Hood River up to the North Pole ... Easton had a great time.  We went with Heidi, Al, and Lotus and Heidi's parents (Dean and Linda).  Afterwards we all went out to dinner.

A December to Remember (5)


 


Day 5: Homemade Crockpot Hot Chocolate (from a pinterest recipe - next time I will go with the way my mom made it with sugar, milk, cocoa on the stovetop!)  Anyways here are a couple pictures:

 
 
Hope everyone else had a great day!!!

Today we also made some salt dough ornaments that Easton helped cut out with cookie cutters and we baked them.  We will be painting them soon so they can be added to Christmas presents!

A December to Remember (1 - 4)




So my goal for December 1 - 25 is to do something fun and holiday related with Easton ... here is what our first four days looked like.

December 1 and 2: We put up Christmas Decorations.

December 3: We made Buttered Rum Meltaway Cookies and Marshmallow Stirrer Straws for Hot Chocolate later this week.

 
 



Dec 4:  Easton colored Christmas color pages ... it was a long day with Work and School so we didn't do to much this evening.
