Fast Friday

4 more days until Christmas, I'm not sure how that happened!! Here are some of the things we've been up to.

This week seemed like a pretty busy week although we didn't have too much going on. Most of it was things to get ready for other things.

Last weekend was really nice weather. So after some errands that we ran, we took the kids to the park to play for a while. Utah weather has been really weird lately. It snowed really good a couple of weeks ago, and then last week was all in the 50's!

We had a family game of battleship. It was a close game, it came down to one move. Trevon's last call was going to end the game either way. Unfortunately, he picked the right move and sunk my last ship.

Our neighbors brought us over some mint chocolate chip cookies that were amazing.

We did a lot of baking this week. Usually, I'll give cookies for our neighbor gifts, but I give cookies a lot so I decided to try something new (plus I had a ton of cranberries to use) So we made bread instead!

I had J's Christmas party this week that I volunteered for.  I was in charge of the craft. I'm not very crafty so I found this cute snowman craft on Pinterest and decided to do that. The problem was that I painted all of the clothespins ahead of time so they would be dry enough to do the rest, and I should have used spray paint. This took the majority of my time this week. But they turned out cute and the kids had a good time decorating them.

We did lots of family things this week, like taking the kids to see lights a couple of different times. The mall near us has a fun (and small), and free light area that the kids can run around in. The kids loved that the lights went with the music.

I will be taking a little break for Christmas and I won't be writing a post for Monday (Christmas Eve) I will probably still be around on Instagram, so you can find me there :).  I hope you all have the best Christmas and I'll talk to you soon!

Do you volunteer for your kid's classrooms?
