A Little Drummer Boy, Snow Bunny, and Cookie Maker

I can't believe that Christmas is in four days, and that the end of 2009 is right around the corner. Where did December go? Where did the year go? I have no answers, only pictures of the happenings of the last month. (More to come after the holiday this weekend.)

Jake's friend Natalie had a "Band" birthday party and here is our little drummer boy.

The first snowfall of the season was this last weekend, and it was a blizzard. We got over a foot of snow on the ground and the drifts were much higher. Jake saw snow last year, but being so little wouldn't remember it. He had fun outside, at least until he got too cold. :)

Helping Daddy shovel the sidewalk.

I made the wreath out of ornaments with a friend of mine. It wasn't hard and turned out well. If you want to know how to make one for yourself, go here.

Jake helped make Christmas cookies this year.

He decided to taste the flour (multiple times!)...I love that he is making so many facial expressions. It's a new thing and its funny at times to see his expressions in reaction to something.

Rolling out the dough with Daddy.

Are they done yet????
