"Feliz Navidad" is on constant replay in Casa Shim. The boys have memorized it is on Disc 3, Track 10. [Are we the only ones who still use an "old fashioned" stereo?] When the song comes on j busts out the Rock Band drums and microphone and there is usually a dancing + singing combo going on. I really need to videotape them in action. I wish this month would slow down. There are so many things I want to do with the boys before Christmas passes us by. [I actually have plans to continue our family activities throughout the year, I'll share details in January!] I was inspired by Tracie's advent calendar to add a few activities in which the boys [and our family] can help those around us. And I was also inspired by Paula's advent tree. I love all the creative people I have met over the years.
And speaking of creative friends, I love Sarah of Truly Smitten! We are friends and although we've never met in person I know when we do [hopefully next year] we will have fun chatting + laughing + eating together. Sarah designed the prettiest holiday card ever! And I love the fact that she hand wrote a personal message on the back. [You can read more about the Truly Smitten holiday cards here.]
