Countdown to Christmas...8 Days

What a crazy week! Sick/busy/sick/busy! If we don't stay well around here we will never get caught up enough to not be busy!

I took my Finals this week and I officially have all A's in my courses for the semester, so that is good. I also got to finish my Christmas shopping and have a little bit of Christmas fun with the kids as well...

First we did Expedition Earth's Christmas Around the World Curriculum this week and studied China.

We made Chinese knot ornaments in the shape of dragonflies:

We also made Plum Blossom trees to represent the Chinese New Year. I think they look so cute with my Christmas Village:

Today we went to a Christmas party at my friend Jami's house and the kids made gingerbread houses, watched Christmas movies (for like 5 minutes until the kids found something else to do), and drank hot cocoa:
