Happy tenth day of Christmas Jackson & Andrew! Santa will be here in just 15 days! Open the box under the tree and put your puzzling skills to the test!

Inside the box, the boys found their Christmas puzzle and got right to work.

I love how Andrew is clapping here!

Happy eleventh day of Christmas Jackson & Andrew! Santa will be here in just 14 days! During Christmas, it is fun to receive gifts, but it is even more fun to give them! After school, go shopping to pick out presents for the whole family!

Always one of my favorite activities and this year was made even more fun by little Andrew also wanting his say into what was picked out for each individual. Get ready family--they found some real treasures! =)

And not necessarily related to our gift selection adventure, but sometimes you just need a dance party. A dance party made more fun with Christmas stockings on your legs!

Happy twelfth day of Christmas Jackson & Andrew! Santa will be here in just 13 days!  Tonight a very special surprise is waiting for you at bedtime! Take your bath and put on your jammies, then look under your pillow!

This is another activity Jackson remembered well and was looking forward to. His class had had a pajama party that day and watched the Polar Express so we kept with the theme of the day. The first picture below is daddy reading the prompt to him and the moment of realization about what was going to happen. 

He immediately led Andrew to his room and helped him find his ticket for the bedtime Polar Express.

...then ran upstairs to find his own.

He was pretty pumped!

They had their tickets punched, just like in the movie.

They were ready to board the Polar (Ford Escape) Express!

We drove around and took in lots of lights and of course made a stop at "THE" house for Christmas lights in town, set to music complete with Aggie flair. Don't worry, Andrew only sat in the front seat when we were stopped at this house.
