Tuesday night, the boys and I rode on the 4-H float in the Carthage Christmas Parade. It was cold, but a lot of fun.

On Wednesday, it was so rainy and cold that we decided to skip D's basketball practice. He wasn't very happy about it, but I just could not bring myself to go. Instead, we stayed home and watched Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, listened to a couple episodes of the old Cinnamon Bear radio show, and made a few ornaments out of old Christmas cards. The boys and I decided to decorate our tree in homemade ornaments this year, so we will be working throughout the month making ornaments.
We had a play date at the park with some of our friends from our homeschool group on Thursday. When we got home, we put up the Christmas tree. That night, we listened to more Cinnamon Bear and made ornaments using PerlerBeads.
On Friday, the boys helped Big B put lights on the tree and then made a few more ornaments while listening to more Cinnamon Bear. That night, our 4-H Club was supposed to go caroling with some of the other clubs, but the other clubs didn't show up. Instead, we ate, played games, and built with Lego's. Everyone had a good time, even if things didn't go as planned.

The rest of the weekend was spent shopping, doing Christmas crafts, watching movies, doing chores, and just loafing around the house.
