Christmas fun--Grinch day

Our advent book and craft today:  "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"and Tinsel trees.

 We read (and watched) How the Grinch stole Christmas today.
Then we decorated (finally!).
Then we drove to look at lights.

 April and I were the only ones to really do the mini-tinsel trees.  The boys didn't have the patience.  We had fun together while the boys made random things out of pipe cleaners.
April's is the blue and white one.  Mine are the other 2.  The multi-colored one was my first practice try.  Then I actually followed the real instructions and came out with the brown and red one.

 Our Christmas decorations this year.  It finally feels more like Christmas around here...

 I love how this looks with all the nativity's together.  I think I'm dreaming though.  I know these are going to have to eventually be moved up high.
