22nd & 23rd Days of Christmas: First Day of Winter? & Gingerbread House

We spent the 22nd Day of Christmas and first day of winter hanging out with our friends!

...and enjoying the abundant sunshine and 75 degree temperatures in short sleeves while walking around campus and riding the buses. Always a favorite activity! So much for first day of winter!

Jackson loved the War Hymn statue but Andrew was terrified of the larger than life renderings. He wanted nothing to do with it while Jackson weaved in and out of their legs!

This was Jillian and Alex's first time on the Aggie Bus and Jillian especially was beyond excited. I think it was our bus driver's first day since he was accompanied by a trainer, and our littles ensured it was a first day he would never forget. Jillian kept exclaiming "this is the best day of my life!" Something tells me his usual riders will not be so exuberantly appreciative of his efforts. =)

The same bus driver was also kind enough to take our picture in front of the bus!

Later that night, we did our activity for the day:

Happy twenty-second day of Christmas Jackson & Andrew! Santa will be here in just 3 days! Christmas comes but once a year and we only get to enjoy the tree for a short while. Tonight we will enjoy the tree and special family family movie night with Elf!

Happy twenty-third day of Christmas Jackson & Andrew! Santa will be here in just 2 days! Our home is full of the Christmas spirit. Capture some Christmas spirit with your very own house-- a Gingerbread house! 

Andrew wasn't in the least bit interested in decorating the Gingerbread house. Grammy and Pop had arrived so he was more interested in going outside to play with Pop while Jackson enjoyed the activity.

Andrew was happy to smile for a picture though with the promise of getting to eat some of the candy off the house. Do you see Jackson's fondant snake carefully placed outside the Gingerbread house?

Later that evening we took Grammy and Pop to see the lights at Central Park.

Spinning under the big tree.

Precious memories!
