Baking Sugar Cookies

Hannah and I enjoyed her Christmas vacation and the extra time we had when not involved with regular activities and piano practice.

One evening we decided to bake sugar cookies and it was such a fun activity to do together.  It’s wonderful to see how much of this she can now do on her own with just a little help from mom. 

She’s starting to read the recipe and can measure most of the ingredients herself too.  After all that was done she rolled out the dough and cut the cookies into shapes.

All Set for Santa!

Hannah was hard at work preparing for Santa’s arrival!  She baked cookies for him, added some candy cane popcorn and poured him some egg nog.  She also left this cute note!  (This is where I see her French Immersion schooling coming through. Smile  Spelling will improve with time once English is added later.)

Der Sateu,

(Interpretation)

Dear Santa,

Thank you for my gifts.  I hope you like the egg nog and cookies and candy cane popcorn.  Love Hannah

Before we left to celebrate Christmas Eve with friends she carefully placed 2 baby carrots out for each reindeer as well as spread reindeer food on the driveway to guide Santa to our home. 

She was all set and excited for Santa to arrive!

I will still say that after over 8 years together I am still in awe and daily blessed and thankful that God created our little family!

After enjoying a morning of gift opening, breakfast treats and watching the Disney Christmas special, we headed off to mom and dad’s to join the rest of the family.

I love this pic of family, mess, smiles, laughter and so much more captured in this one moment in time.

Just wish I’d thought to take a picture of my brothers, SIL and I with mom and dad.  First time we’ve all been together at Christmas in a few years.  Hopefully next year!

It was another wonderful Christmas day and we are blessed beyond measure!

School Christmas Concert 2017

Hannah’s school offered a ballet option this year and she’s loved it!  It’s such a treat to see my sweet girl spreading her wings and trying something new!

Her class also sang.  LOL – not sure what they sang but it was very pretty and she was having fun!

An Out of the Box Christmas

Hannah was excited to graduate into the ‘big kids’ choir this year and with that came performing an entire Christmas musical.  The kids did great and Hannah was in her glory!!
