My friend Stacy issued a "25 Days of Christmas" challenge.
To participate, post 25 ways you celebrate the Christmas season.
On the ninth day of Christmas, we joined a group of homeschoolers to see Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer at Casa Mañana. It was a fun Christmas production, and we enjoyed the company, as usual. Gracie and Bub are becoming quite close to a couple of kids from this group, a brother and sister set named Rebecca and Ben. The kids are all the same ages, the family lives in our neighborhood, the girls cheer on the same squad, we see them at events and parties, and we each make an effort to invite the other to other homeschool functions we wouldn't already be attending together. I'm enjoying the new relationship, and I'm very excited to watch the kids' relationships grow.
