Countdown to Christmas...20 Days!

It is actually a lot harder than you might imagine to count backwards towards Christmas when you miss a couple of days with this as your title. I keep panicking that I will get to Christmas and have days left over!

Yesterday I got to take photos of my Sister in law for her Christmas presents, and Alex got to go over to his cousin's and play. We actually made the rounds, and I saw 3 different sister-in-laws yesterday! The only downside to the day was that I had to leave the house by 11 am. I am not even close to a morning person, and leaving the house before 1pm really throws a glitch in my whole day.
Here is a picture of Alex with his Aunt:

Since we were so busy, I didn't get any Christmas crafts done. We did our advent calendar, and read the story "The Dreamer" from our Jesse Tree book. 

The funniest part of the day was when Alex went to the bathroom. I took him in there and after he was done, decided to go myself. When I was finished Alex yelled "Mommy! You shake your winky, you don't wipe it!" I couldn't stop laughing.

Oh, and just for a little more fun, I will include Alex working on his tanagrams! He loves them! They were originally purchased for Bella a couple of years ago, but now Alex is just the right age to enjoy them.

These are the ones we have, and we love them! The only thing I don't like is the lid doesn't have a way of re-attaching (it is clear plastic) but a couple of pieces of scotch tape seem to fix that up quite nicely!
