Pre-Christmas Fun

We left for Utah about a week before Christmas,
so I knew we wouldn't have time for all of our traditional pre-Christmas activities,
but we managed to squeeze in quite a few!

Decorating the Christmas tree

Making Christmas tree pizzas

Christmas storybook countdown+lots of reading by the tree

Decorating a gingerbread house (thank you, Trader Joe's)

 Making and delivering chocolates and peanut butter popcorn to friends and neighbors
(this year we did rolo turtles, oreo truffles, peanut butter and chocolate balls, maple cream nut balls, and chocolate nut clusters)

and our first annual Christmas music party!

The kids were sad we couldn't do everything we had done in the past,
but they were quickly appeased by the reminder that the reason we weren't doing it all was because we were going to Utah!
Next up: Highlights from our trip!
(yes, it was over 2 months ago and we've already gotten our plane tickets for this year's trip, but I'm almost caught up!)
