There’s been so much journaling this month between Thanksgiving, Decorating, and the start of our advent that there are just a few things I didn’t cover. So here are a few of my favorite pics of Serenity this month =)
We got Secret of the Wings this month, so Serenity has spent a lot of time as a fairy, especially a snowflake fairly like Periwinkle
We did a service project with friends, and the girls love playing together. They were all winter fairies.
Packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child
Dance recital! She did such a great job!!! And she said she loved it. They danced to Here Comes Santa Claus
She asked for buns in her hair.
She can do the loop and looms she got for her birthday all by herself now! She made a whole purse! I don’t know if her manual dexterity has increased that much or if the loops are just a lot looser after she stretched the in ropes all over the house for the last six months.
Playing Pilgrim and Turkey on Thanksgiving. Eric is the turkey =)
Having a cookie with her friend Lorelei from school at the Thanksgiving Feast
Her teacher, Ms. Parent
The finished purse =) She filled it with some weeds that she picked, and told Daddy they’d make him go super fast if she sprinkled them on him…
Tonight’s plan was to make a Thanksgiving craft. Serenity thought that up all on her own, which is totally awesome because I’ve been wanting to come up with some sort of thankful activity to list things we are thankful for. Here are the first things she said: “I’m thankful for my sweet Mama and my sweet brother and my sweet Daddy. I’m thankful that we get to do crafts (she was probably reacting to my excitement about the plan for tomorrow =) and she’s thankful for the new kitchen. Hee hee =)
I sang some Christmas carols yesterday and Serenity did her own interpretive dance. Then she asked me to sing more because she wanted to dance more. It makes me question quitting our dance lessons!
