Son of a Nutcracker

The most wonderful time of the year might as well be renamed the busiest time of the year.  It has been absolute madness around here, and I have loved every single minute of it!  Not to mention, I can watch Elf as many times as I want without being judged since it's Christmas time!

The Shawnee Christmas Parade was towards the beginning of the month.  My kids worked hard on the float for almost a week.  The overall theme of the parade was “A Storybook Christmas.”  We went for something nontraditional like the nutcracker.  Everyone had a different part, and the weather cooperated—it was not extremely cold that night, and I am so thankful for that!  They ended up winning the 2nd place in the best use of theme category!

This Saturday I am having the first ever ugly Christmas sweater/Christmas cookie exchange party with my 4-H’ers.  I have been getting inspiration from Pinterest and cookie cookbooks! Yesterday I read this all time favorite. I cannot wait to see what the kids come up with. It should be a great time.  I am just really excited to have a few days with family, and I am ready to relax!
