Here Comes Santa Claus

  • Last night when we were trick or treating Mica said at one house, "Do you know that Thanksgiving is next, then comes Christmas?" The lady said excited, "I know! That's cool! All kinds of holidays one after another!"
  • Mica's been talking about Christmas since his birthday in August. Daddy's been getting pretty annoyed. Daddy said, "I'm sick of I want, I want, I want." As soon as the boys are old enough to stand for awhile we are going to sign up to be bell ringers and GIVE our time. There's been a few times where I've known families in need. We bought gifts to put on their front porch. With medical expenses when the boy's were babies we thought Christmas was going to be hard for us. We made it work though. I think it helps kids to understand what giving is about if you give to a family you know personally.
  • This year I am involving Mica in making Christmas presents for his teachers. We're making chocolate from Glee Gum. Then he'll help me make pumpkin bread too. Both boys love helping in the kitchen.
  • I'm also going to attempt to have Mica help me wrap presents this year. I'll box the present's up. He'll tell everyone what they are getting if I don't box them up. I'm wrapping many gifts in just brown craft paper. Mica will go with me to Hobby Lobby to pick out things we can glue onto the packages. Like foam cut outs, or paper snowflakes. Mica can glue them and stick them on. Mica's not too into crafts yet; we'll see how it goes.
  • Two of my favorite sites Go Graham Go and Jolly Mom are having some Christmas giveaways going on where you can get extra entries by posting their button and tell them that you did. You can also blog about their 2010 Here Comes Santa Claus to get extra entries.
