Twas the last Saturday before Christmas...

and this is what it looked like at our house:

We got just a dusting of snow, but since it was the first, we had to make a snowman.

Which of course, had to be followed up by hot chocolate:

This is the grouchy mama who thought we would be getting some pre-Christmas chores/packing/baking and shopping done today. I was cheering myself up by dipping into one of the delicacies I had bought for the holidays.  Prosciutto Ham and cream cheese on crackers.  Oh my goodness. Yum.

PK2 found this shirt and said that she wanted to wear it today because she thought it matched daddy.  She was kind of right:

She also helped daddy fix the toilet paper holder today:

We took the van in for four new tires:

The advent countdown calendar is filling up:

I got a few gifts wrapped.  I think I am more than halfway done:

In the evening we headed out to the Zoo lights with Papa and Gram:

Fun day. My kids would have much preferred that to my yelling at them and crying because I had to parties at my house this week. I won't show them this post...they'll feel ripped off. And, my kids only fight when we do the advent wreath every night so I'm feeling very discouraged about our Christmas spirit.

Wow! You had one filled Saturday (love the snack btw). I saw so many snowmen on Saturday. Weren't the zoo lights beautiful! I loved them.
