Baking Christmas cookies is always a fun family tradition Jeff has enjoyed since he was little. This year we made cookies for the kids teachers for their last day of school. We used American recipes, a real treat for them! The kids loved mixing, watching the cookies bake, and of course getting to eat a few once they were done!
On December 1st and 2nd we went to Casa Ana Nadia and Casa Rebecca to help trim the trees. With the Christmas music playing, the kids all rallied around to string the lights, place the garlands in the just the right places and hang the ornaments. Jack had so much fun playing with the "balls" of all different colors! It think throughout the month though he managed to take off most of the ornaments 3 feet and below on both trees! It was a great start to the Christmas season!
Yes, we are still here in Romania. Our apologies for not continuing to update our blog throughout December. It has been a very, very busy month. From daily activities with the kids for Advent, me being sick and in bed for almost 2 1/2 weeks and some time in the hospital, to keeping up with a 16 month old...there wasn't much time to update! But, here are a few of the highlights of the month. Enjoy and thank you for loving us and for all of your prayers! With love, Jen
