December 3: Write and mail letters to Santa

Thing One

Thing Two

and Princess Fierce

Then to Macy's to put them in Santa's mailbox and help donate money to the Make a Wish Foundation.

December 4: Visit Santasaurus and eat cupcakes!

This one the kids didn't believe their older brother was telling the truth when he read it. My daughter quickly said, "Mommy doesn't let us have cupcakes in the morning! What does it really say?" But indeed mommy did. The Fernbank Museum of Natural History was holding a Christmas event and as new members this year it was the perfect free Advent Activity. Crafts for the kids, trees decorated by the consulates in town, carolers, Santasaurus and delicious cupcakes!

Only our youngest was interested in posing with the Santasaurus. They grow up too fast!

The promised cupcakes, served under giant dinosaur bones!

December 5: Make Christmas cards for the card swap, friends and family

Again this year we made cards from old Christmas cards. You can read all about it at this blog post.

December 6: Ride the Pink Pig and pictures with Santa

Telling Santa what they want this year.

Riding the Pink Pig!
