We... were so busy in December! Has anyone wondered where I've been? Well, we did our best to make this a Christmas full of wonderful memories and keep it extra low cost. I would have started playing catch-up sooner but my camera has been missing since December 30th! Tyler found it this morning! If you want to find out where you'll have to keep reading all of my "We..." series of posts!
Has anyone heard of Lowe's Build and Grow clinics for kids? They are awesome, and free, 100% FREE (unless you feel like you need to shop afterward!) Well, we just started taking our kids in December, I've been wanting to do them for a long time and now we can't stop. 3 Saturdays in December we made a different part to a train, first the caboose, then a passenger car and last, the engine. 12/3
The kids really like building, Peyton only likes the hammering part! They each got a free apron and goggles and everytime they make a project they earn a patch for their aprons, so cool.
12/4 To keep gift costs down we did some more crafting for gifts. Micah made a few hats on the knifty knitter (he wanted to make one for himself but made it too small and it went to Dustin) and I made about 20! A while back I learned how to crochet a flower on you tube and added flowers to the girl hats, so cute!

12/4 We made it to the Parade in downtown Clovis this year!
